Just five minutes from the centre of Cambridge, the family-run Huntington Stables Retreat is tucked away in a quiet, semi-rural setting, offering guests a chance to rest and reenergise.
Huntington Stables is a great base for those looking to explore the Waikato region, as the property is close to attractions such as the glow worm caves of Waitomo, the geothermal waters of Rotorua, Hobbiton and Sanctuary Mountain. Hamilton Airport is only a 20-minute drive away.
There are four accommodation options available: North Stable, South Stable, Loft and Stall, with the north and south stables being the most luxurious with kitchen and dining facilities, private balconies, barbecue equipment and gorgeous mountain views. All room types are spacious and comfortable, featuring homely and cosy décor suited to the rustic surroundings.
The property is a popular spot for weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries, due to the romantic setting and luxury facilities. However, the swimming pool, steam sauna and bubbling spa pool also attracts groups of friends and families looking for a private getaway or a day of pampering.
Spend the evening soaking in the hot spa-pool, then sit on your private balcony with a glass of locally-made wine and one of the retreat’s delicious sharing platters of New Zealand fare, then watch the sun dip behind the mountains.
