Southern Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
Located deep in the Hawke's Bay, Wallingford is perfect for those who want to immerse themselves in old world luxury, with amazing food, and simply relax.
Wallingford is a serenely magical place powered by a small team of professional foodies. A grand manor built in the 1800’s, it offers innovative food and modern conveniences while preserving all the old world integrity of its architecture. Ensconced in lush gardens filled with birdlife, Wallingford is surrounded by the rolling hills of the countryside and wide open spaces that allude to small scale farming.
Wallingford has five beautiful suites with ensuites, as well as three additional rooms which share a bathroom. There’s a pool and pavilion, dining room, grand sitting room, conference area, private verandahs, courtyards and intimate spaces where you can enjoy your stay.
For all you journeyers who want to retreat from noise, distraction and the chronic busyness of your everyday, mosey down the twisting, turning road that is Wallingford’s doorstep and enter into a world that nurtures with slow food, birdsong, the silent moon, ancient stars, human moments and bespoke hospitality.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
