    A beautifully restored home dating back to the 1880s, but with all the mod coms. The hosts, Tony and Maggie, are truly interested in their guests, generous with their time, and staying with them feels like home. I’d highly recommend booking...

    It’s a beautiful Victorian setting with every modern convenience. Tony and Maggie are excellent hosts and the breakfast was gourmet.

    First impressions count. As I arrived I was greeted by Maggie who was very friendly and showed me around, before Tony arrived and welcomed me with a much appreciated cold beverage! My hosts were engaging and warm, and I felt at ease and...

We are set in an historic and restored 1886 Heritage New Zealand villa. We have only 3 guest rooms, so you will never be crowded. Furnished with stunning Victorian antiques, English wallpapers, and fine fabrics, our aim is to make you feel special. We offer full cooked breakfast served by candlelight in the breakfast room, with a roaring fire in winter and complimentary fine ports, relax in the acre of gardens or curl up in the snug and watch a movie. There is an honesty bar, and we can even do a meal if you let us know in advance. We have great local knowledge and can recommend places to visit. We can make a grazing platter for you, and cater for gluten free and vegan if required. We can host your wedding party, and often get booked as a whole house for the in-laws looking for something upmarket, or for the bride and groom and their friends. We can also host writers clubs, book clubs, gardening groups, and small events. We have recently hosted 70th dinner parties for 16 people, where others staying locally joined the function, and can cost up a number of scenarios. Pheasant Lodge finished its renovations in August 2022 and has been open since September 2022 with 5 star reviews. We built it for people to have fun, enjoy this wonderful historic property with friends and family, and for an excuse for me buy nice antiques and single malt whiskies, so far its working!
Maggie and I have lived in the area for 8 years, and know it well. Maggie was born in Auckland and is a qualified Alexander Technique practitioner, When the tide is right, Maggie grabs the stand-up paddle board (SUP) and heads 2 hours down the river to the sea.. or the other way. She is also a keen needleworker, starting Needles Inc locally and creating free form pictures, and exotic dolls. Tony was born in the Cotswolds UK and raised his family there living in Amsterdam, Paris, London and Nairobi as a commodity trader. Arriving in New Zealand in 1990. he has been involved in Marketing Database and analytics fo the last 30 years, and was the first Marketing Fellow in NZ. Tony has a passion for antiques, design, gardening, single malt whiskies, and boring the pants off anyone who will listen to him! Together with Rhubarb, our ginger rescue cat, we look forward to having you stay with us at Pheasant Lodge to relax, and feel special..
Paparoa is situated midway between both the East and the West coasts of NZ, a 20 minute drive to Mangawhai, 35 minutes toi Dargaville and on the way up to the Kai-Iwi lakes and the great Kauri Forests. From paparoa, there is a central road all the way to Whangarei and the new Hundterwasser museum, and Paihia and the Far North. The world famous Kauri Museum at Matakohe is 10 minutes away and the Beach at Pahi is about the same. Dargaville museum is 35 minutes, and the west coast beaches and Pouto a further drive. Being 2 hours from the airport, we are the perfect luxury retreat when you arrive from overseas, or just escaping Auckland for the weekend with friends and wanting something special.
