The Lodge at Tikana (Winton)
Price from £739 per room per night
This exclusive private retreat is a home away from home, situated on a 100 acre working farm which covers a fertile valley that is complete with a stream through the middle and up to rolling hills at the top. The environmentally friendly straw bale construction of the lodge takes away the sharp lines with curves adding to the feeling of comfort and warmth. The essence of nature is carried through the construction, with recycled timber mixing with raw timber, stone and steel.
Books or DVDs are available from the lodge's library or guests can just lie back and listen to the superb surround sound from the state-of-the-art entertainment centre. Alternatively, a grass tennis court is located through the garden to the north. There is also an outdoor spa pool is enclosed by nature under a canopy of trees.
Accommodating only one exclusive booking at a time, the lodge's beds come with Egyptian cotton linen. The Mezzanine Levelhas a spacious en-suite bathroom. Heated flooring makes sure you are never cold and the juxtaposition of old rustic timber beams beside the polished rimu creates a contrast of cosiness and space. Curl up on the comfortable couch in front of the crackling log fire with a fresh latte from the espresso machine.
