Created by kiwi Mark Palmer to breed the finest livestock and create uniquely authentic experiences for guests, Annandale is a 4,000-acre working sheep and cattle coastal farm, located along the scenic Banks Peninsula on the South Island. Set within a historic farm, established in 1843, the five-bedroom Annandale homestead has been beautifully restored and is surrounded by elegant gardens and abundant orchards. In addition to this centrepiece, there is the authentic and rustic Shepherd's Cottage, brimming with charm and the ideal rural retreat for two, Scrubby Bay, a luxurious four-bedroom cedar-clad beach house in its own bay and perfect for celebrations, plus Seascape an ultra-modern one-bedroom steel and glass retreat, situated in a picturesque private bay which is only accessible by 4-wheel-drive or helicopter.

Whether guests prefer the charm of a 19th-century homestead, or seek a sleek retreat such as Seascape, they are assured of sensational coastal scenery, delicious local cuisine and warm kiwi hospitality. Each property provides a superb level of comfort and luxury inside, along with activities such as cooking classes, spa treatments, horse- riding, mountain-biking or simply hiking the incredible estate. Beyond the fertile rolling hills, the turquoise waters are perfect for kayaking and guests can visit nearby Akaroa to take nature cruises and see the native Hector's dolphins.
