The Cook's Loft
The Cooks Loft is a quaint top story apartment which gives the sense of a cosy retreat amongst the treetops. Perfect for an indulgent, relaxing weekend away.Adjacent to Te Puhi farm house – a beautiful colonial home built in 1868 – this is a unique get-a-way from it all in a quaint country setting you will treasure. Set among 35 acres of farmland with plantings of native, deciduous and fruit trees, including a lemon grove, there are plenty of walking opportunities in this natural country environment.
We offer two bedrooms with queen-sized beds, a modern bathroom with separate shower and bath, open-plan lounge/dining area and fully equipped cook's kitchen with stove, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher facilities. The beds are comfortable with electric blankets, feather mattress toppers, handmade quilts and stacks of pillows. Furnished with country antiques, the Cook's Loft is light and airy with piles of recipe books, magazines and novels to leisurely read and board games to enjoy for a quiet night in.
The gardens and the surrounding Te Puhi farm are there for you to enjoy. Set in the old orchard is the fully restored farm dray, originally built in 1897. There is a charming and productive kitchen garden which supplies organically grown ingredients for the Country Cooking School. Enrol in a cooking class during your stay to fully enjoy the long lunch that you've helped to prepare, matched with wines from the Wairarapa region.
