Embark on an unforgettable culinary journey during Annandale's wonderful cooking classes, led by a world-class chef. With no set menu, you can decide exactly what you want to learn on your own bespoke course, before transforming the freshest local produce into delicious dishes using expert techniques. If you'd prefer to sit back whilst a specialist prepares the food, you can hire your own personal chef for one remarkable meal or for your entire stay. Design the perfect menu for your own taste, which will then be brought to life using seasonal inspiration and unparalleled passion from your chef.
With its dramatic surrounding landscape, wide shimmering waters and wonderful tranquillity, Annandale oozes charm and romance. Experience complete intimacy with help from the 'Luxury Indulgence' package, offering chilled Champagne on arrival, gourmet "we create, you serve" breakfasts and picnic hampers, plus your very own private nature cruise. For the ultimate sanctuary, book the luxurious Shepherd's Cottage, a secluded rural retreat that is perfect for a romantic getaway. Relax in the outdoor bath, overlooking uninterrupted views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean, before snuggling up on sheepskins in front of the open fire.
The sheltered, turquoise-coloured waters of Pigeon Bay are home to a host of fascinating marine life, including diverse bird colonies, New Zealand Fur Seals and charming Blue Penguins. Kayak into the playground of the friendly Hector's Dolphins - the smallest and most rare in the world - and swim alongside them for a truly unforgettable wildlife encounter or hop aboard Annandale's powerboat for a breathtaking nature cruise, led by an expert local guide who will ensure that you get the very most from your trip whilst the captivating species are completely respected and remain undisturbed.
