Come and stay in our beautiful cob cottage – it’s a work of art and a labour of love! Handmade using natural materials, from untreated native and exotic hardwood timbers to stomped clay, sand and straw walls, our cob cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all. Hidden away at the bottom of our “help yourself” vege garden and orchard, it is buttressed by a stand of totara and native bush that is home to a range of birdlife. Private and peaceful, it is like taking a trip back to a simpler time.

Tara Retreat is a developing and evolving glamping and eco accommodation space that includes our stunning Cob Cottage – which was lovingly handcrafted over a 12 day workshop and then countless hours of oiling the wood and rendering the inside and out by hand with lime and earth plasters. You can cook in the shared communal kitchen and BBQ area, where you can also play boardgames or meet new friends. The cob cottage uses a separate gas shower and compost toilet block to complete a comfy glamping experience.
Own private area around the cob cottage but guests are welcome to wander the gardens and help yourself to seasonal fruit & vegetables and discover the meditation deck in the bush behind. Enjoy the communal kitchen & BBQ area with board games, disc golf chains & swing ball.
