Set on three acres of alpine hillside in Queenstown overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables range, Sherwood offers a unique setting to unwind, and reconnect with self and nature
The recently renovated guest rooms traverse the humble luxury of a lakeside studio to the communal comfort of a queen-size bunkroom and cater for any independent traveller seeking atmosphere and authenticity.
You’ll find the sheltered central garden perfect for spontaneous leisure, sun drenched breakfasts, late afternoon cocktails or a fireside sing-along – while the surrounding bike track, kitchen gardens, orchard and sunset tipi provide many a hidden spot for a picnic or snooze.
The culinary team specializes in fresh, seasonal, soul food harvested from our own kitchen gardens, orchards and surrounding farms – while the bar team curates an ever-changing selection of independent craft beers, fine natural wine, and rare spirits.
They have a yoga, pilates and meditation instructor plus an Ayurvedic massage offering, along with an ever changing line up of live music, film, writers and artists in residence.
Everything they do is about reflecting a sense of place, a connection to nature and a moment in time. They hope that your stay will leave you refreshed and reinvigorated.
They have taken a big breath of Queenstown and mixed it with a few things that we love to have around. Right now they have a freshly planted herb garden with heirloom fruit and vegetables, a dual slalom bike track, native South Island tree plantings and a yoga, pilates, massage and meditation teacher. They’ve also got a developing ski and bike workshop, the speediest wireless internet access we can get our hands on, and to adopt a good thing from our American Indian friends, a traditional tipi if you just need some time in a tent – which we all do at some point.
To support our amenities programme and its continual evolution from July 2015 onwards we will be putting in place a modest charge for our yoga, pilates and bike hire. We hope that you will find value in these these initiatives.
