Cabot Lodge is situated on 2,000 acres of farmland bordering the Fiordland National Park, a renowned World Heritage Site. 

The farm is home to over 7,000 animals with sheep, deer, cattle, beehives and two miniature horses. Guests are given the opportunity to take part in and experience New Zealand farming life, feeding our horses and pet sheep, exploring the art of beekeeping, joining 4WD tours of the property to learn about sustainable farming techniques, and watching our top staff member, Sam the sheep dog, in action.

There are a number of walks for guests of all fitness levels to enjoy while on the property. Guests can climb to the highest peak of the farm for breathtaking views, or wander down to the secluded jetty on the peaceful Waiau River for a romantic picnic or a spot of fishing. 

The farm provides fresh produce daily to Cabot Lodge with a strong focus on farm to plate cuisine. The meat served at Cabot Lodge is ethically raised and sustainably farmed, benefiting from the vast experience of our family in caring for the property and its animals for over forty years. The greens from the Lodge garden are organically grown and served fresh, travelling no more than a few steps from soil to kitchen.  

There are countless opportunities to explore and discover the beauty of New Zealand on this authentic and captivating property.
