Meticulous restoration transformed Matahiwi Barn from a derelict 19th century farm building into a sumptuous dressing facility and impeccably comfortable overnight accommodation for members of the bridal party.
Four bedrooms, three of them en suite, sleep up to eight guests. The soaring living space, lined with the original heart totara, is richly furnished with Persian rugs, antiques, blissfully comfortable sofas and chairs, select artworks, books, sound system, piano, serious wood burner and plenty of firewood. There’s a Bocuse range cooker in the entertainer’s kitchen and a profusion of herbs at its door. Get the picture?
