About Annandale
In an area of outstanding beauty and off the tourist trail lies Annandale, an iconic coastal farm escape offering four award-winning luxury villas with relaxed Kiwi-style informality. Developed in 1843, Annandale was one of the earliest and most renowned farms in New Zealand’s South Island. With 10 kilometers of spectacular and rugged coastline, Annandale boasts 4,000 acres, 500 cattle and between 7,000 and 14,000 sheep. Annandale’s aim is to breed the finest stock through sustainable farming practices for the most delicious meat and best quality wool, while providing world-class luxury accommodation, farm-to-table cuisine and uniquely authentic experiences for our guests.
The centrepiece of this historic farm is the restored 5-bedroom Annandale Homestead overlooking the ocean and surrounded by magnificent gardens, a restored fernery, infinity pool, spa pool and tennis court. Authentic, rustic and thoroughly charming, the historic Shepherd's Cottage provides an inspiring rural retreat for two with uninterrupted views of the sparkling ocean.Scrubby Bay, a luxurious 4-bedroom cedar-clad beach house in its own bay is the perfect location for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of family and friendship. The sparkling jewel in Annandale’s crown is Seascape, an ultra modern retreat in a picturesque private bay providing a truly romantic experience for couples.

While Annandale offers every luxury and comfort on the inside, it is what’s on the outside that really sets it apart. The turquoise waters surrounding the property are perfect for guided kayaking and nature cruises potentially seeing the famed Hector’s dolphins, seals, blue penguins or orca. Guests can arrange for an off road 4WD motorbike tour adventure, enjoy a hike or bike across the spectacular farm, practice their aim with clay target shooting, or relax with spa service in their villa. Additionally, there are onsite farm–to–table cooking lessons with our award winning chef or helicopter scenic flights.
