We stayed just one night at the truly delightful Lupton Lodge as we were on rather a hectic business trip to Australia and New Zealand. We stayed in the Blue Room – one of three unique rooms in this historic house set in delightful countryside. Everything about the house speaks of quality and attention to detail, from the beautiful Kauri wood floors to the scrumptiously comfortable bed. The room led onto a private verandah which was a wonderfully tranquil place to unwind after a hard day. We were free to wander in the lovely gardens full of native plants and to sit by the pool in the evening sunshine. The Lupton Lodge special breakfast ( cooked by Andy) was also exceptional.
Reasonable rates too – we paid far more for much less elsewhere.
It’s special – stay there!
