Lake Timara Lodge

Lake Timara Lodge is one of New Zealand's most luxurious and private Lodges. Located near the rural township of Blenheim in the province of Marlborough, Lake Timara Lodge is set amongst 600 acres of land, including 25 acres of one of New Zealand's most beautiful gardens.

The gardens include sweeping lawns, fully mature - some more than a century old - native and exotic trees, a five acre, man-made lake and an extensive and immaculately kept English style garden which abounds with native bird life. Adjoining the gardens are 400 acres of Marlborough's finest Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.

Timara Lodge's accommodation facilities ensure you enjoy your stay in privacy and comfort. With just two twin bedrooms and two double bedrooms, there are never more than eight people staying at any one time.

The Marlborough region is known around the world for its wines and gourmet foods. Most of the wineries are just a short distance from Timara Lodge and offer wine tasting and sell their wares from the cellar door. In addition, the region offers a number of other activities and attractions including golf at the nearby Fairhall Golf Course, cruising the magnificent Marlborough Sounds and fly-fishing at one of the many local rivers.

From the minute you arrive at Timara Lodge and see it's surrounding splendour, you know you're in for something special. It's not without a degree of pride when we say that Timara Lodge is a 'slice of paradise in Marlborough, New Zealand'.
