Falls Retreat, Karangahake Gorge

Paddock to plate at The Falls Retreat

As Brad and Emma  and the team at The Falls Retreat adapted to the changes in hospitality wrought by Covid19, it was also time for reflection. In the intervening months of hard work they have taken the time to re-evaluate The Falls Retreat experience, plan new dining concepts, develop new business ideas and work on ensuring that their business is sustainable. To create a long term future for their family, their staff, customers and suppliers, by taking the time to do things better.

 

The peaceful haven Brad and Emma created still offers a superlative dining experience, and their hospitality extends to accommodation, weddings and other special occasions.  Add to this a growing calendar of gardening and cooking workshops, and the reasons to visit quickly multiply.

The Coromandel: Art of the getaway

Ellie Hutchinson and her friend find wilderness and culture rubbing shoulders on a weekend in The Coromandel.

I don't ask for much in a short weekend getaway — sort me out with some bracing walks, a bit of art, stunning scenery, a few oysters, leaping dolphins and plenty of R and R and I'm happy. I found all of these in a 48-hour Coromandel break.
