Relax and unwind at Wakefields Lodge...

The space

Lose yourself forever at Wakefields Lodge. The house is a remarkable character home built in the early 1900's and set in exquisite grounds. Window seats, a stunning open fire place, french doors everywhere leading out to the garden and deck.

The accommodation is flexible with three bedrooms and two bathrooms available;

The Floral Room is a large well appointed bedroom situated on the ground floor of the house. It features a queen and single bed, a flat screen with a DVD player, and wide windows overlooking a rural setting. This room can accommodate up to three people.

Upstairs, the Daffodil Room features a queen sized bed, a large built in wardrobe and overlooks the vegetable garden. This room can accommodate up to two people. There is also a third smaller bedroom with a king single available on request.

Step outside the home and you are enveloped in the scene that surrounds you. Pathways lead you down through the large woodland country garden which is open to the public by appointment. Walk down the sloping paths, through trees under planted with gorgeous garden beds where roses bob their heads in the breeze as you are drawn to the bridge and lake. Choose one of the many garden seats or decks and enjoy an evening drink in the garden and listen to the beautiful bird life before dinner.

Guest access

There is a guest lounge where after a long journey you can relax, read a book and enjoy access to 24 hour tea and coffee making facilities overlooking the garden. You are welcome to share the use of rooms that are shown on the listing ie the Living Room with the fireplace and TV and of course in nice weather the garden. There is also a tennis court with racquets and balls available for guests to enjoy a game or two. Some gym equipment is also set up in the garage and is available for guests.

Interaction with guests

This is my home and so someone is likely to be at the house whenever you stay. I am more than happy to discuss the area and things to do as well as to point you towards things of local interest.

A delicious continental breakfast is provided every morning including coffee/ tea, juices, cereal, croissants, toast, and eggs made to order. Evening meals are available on request at an additional charge.

Other things to note

Wakefields Lodge also operates as a Venue for Weddings and other functions. Please contact me for more information.

I do my best to make every stay at Wakefields Lodge welcoming and memorable.

I would ask that all guests keep me well informed, particularly about the time of arrival (to ensure I am here to meet you) and when you would like to eat breakfast (so that it can be freshly prepared). If you would like an evening meal provided, 24 hours notice is required (note this comes at an additional cost).

As with all shared spaces I have a no smoking rule for the house - any guest that wishes to smoke is most welcome to use the garden for this.

I have a cat and a small dog but they live mainly in the garden, at times they come in but never in guest lounge or bedrooms.

Wakefield Lodge is a visual delight which will offer you a blissful respite from your city life. The gardens are stunning to look out on as well as to explore. The beds embrace you in comfort and the views from all the many vistas are breathtaking. Su is a generous host. I loved learning a little of the Lodge's history. Breakfast included Su's homemade muesli and other delicious treats. I was lucky to visit in Spring when the blossoms were stunning. I hope I can visit again.

A beautiful homestead which was a warm and cosy haven on a winters night. Extrmely comfortable bed and everything you need. I had a gorgeous home cooked meal which was restaurant quality and a lovely evening by the fire watching TV and doing a bit of work. It was a short drive to Massey Uni where I was working tbe next day. Thoroughly recommend and felt like I had a bit of a treat.

I cannot recommend Wakefield Lodge and Su more highly - from the moment you arrive Su makes you feel so very welcome - nothing is too much trouble. A truly lovely home to stay at and one I shall most certainly be looking to return to.

Hi, my name is Su. I trained as a nurse before raising four gorgeous children. I now enjoy creating and working in my large garden, and also work as a professional photographer.

I've lived at Wakefields Lodge for 27 years, and as most of my family have grown-up and moved away I have some spare rooms and enjoy playing hostess. I love having people around and my house is always open to friends and guests. I am a relaxed hostess and do my best to give a warm welcome to all my guests.

Wakefields Lodge also operates as a Venue for Weddings and other functions. Please contact me for more information.
