Welcome to Haurata/Ariel Station and High Country Retreat, a large high country farm that since 2007 has been "biologically farmed", where minerals, trace elements, fish oil and seaweed have been used rather than chemical fertiliseris to feed and improve the soil. The Retreat offers unique accommodation that offers exceptional walks and experiences in beautiful Tairawhiti Gisborne. Here you can experience what its like to have your own piece of New Zealand paradise all to yourself, where you can escape the hustle and bustle of city life and reconnect with nature, fall asleep under starry skies and wake up to the song of New Zealand bird life. A warm welcome awaits you at Haurata with delicious home-made baking upon your arrival and Kiwi hospitality from the very start. Everything you need will be catered for including meals prepared by your own private chef. From the outdoor wood-fired hot tub, the lavish gardens, hidden waterfalls and high country walks, this is a destination waiting to be discovered.
