WOODROYD ESTATE Holiday sanctuary 15 mins from CBD

Family-friendly Lower Hutt holiday home in Kelson with hot tub
Be the lord or lady of this remarkable estate, one of the best-known properties in Lower Hutt. It is very private yet only 15 minutes away from Wellington CBD.

Your grand tour of this magnificent spot begins at the grand gates and takes you one km up a paved scenic driveway, passing 2 sparkling waterfalls on the way. The main house has been greatly enlarged and upgraded. Tudor-style, it features four generous bedrooms, including an upper-level master suite, many living & lounge areas, both formal and informal. There are also another two out-bedrooms. At every step, this home exudes quality: carara ceilings, jarra/matai floors, timber wall panels, inbuilt seating and lovely leadlight windows. The four bathrooms are situated internally, along with a games room with its own bar. The wine cellar & the huge farm-style kitchen is an entertainer’s dream. Well-insulated, the house is warm & comfortable.

In addition, the plantings on this property have been celebrated for almost a century. Tree ferns, cabbage trees, rhododendrons, avocados, walnuts & nikau palms are all well-established. Birdlife abounds, with tuis, fantails, wax-eyes & kingfishers, while monarch butterflies flutter by. The outdoor entertaining area is welcoming with a fireplace & a built-in barbecue in your own private piece of paradise.

5/5 Excellent

Stay experience
What a lovely home. Historically pleasing. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this stay. Many thanks.
Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2021

3/5 Okay

Overall house was nice. Run down though.
House was nice. Few things missing though. No vacuum. No broom. 3 tea towels for 4 days and 1 towel each for 4 days. Went to do a load of washing and the water waste wasnt hooked up and flooded so we couldnt do washing. Bbq outside required new fittings to work. We purchased the fittings and installed at our cost. Have although booked the house for same time next year. Overall enjoyed our stay. Owner was very communicative. Thank you houng

5/5 Excellent

Even in the worst winter weather was still amazing
The photos can never justify the experience of this property and house. Until you see it in real life you just wont understand. This house is amazing! Plenty of room for any occasion and lots more. We stayed while the worst weather warning going on in Wellington, meanwhile we were warm and sheltered up at the estate. We never got to experience the outdoor areas as was raining, but house was more than enough. Driveway got a block with a landslip due to extreme weather... but quickly removed by our group, neighbor, and the owners. So all back on track which was unheard of in that weekend in Wellington. Beautiful place, I would definitely recommend, and cant wait to book there again! AMAZING

5/5 Excellent

Brilliant place !!!!
This place is fantastic for group of people. Hide n seek was fun, wouldn’t recommend horror movie though😀, was great experience overall.

4/5 Good

Great for groups
Communication from property manager was prompt and helpful. The house is ideal for large groups with lots of different areas to congregate in. Only downside is there only being one shower (apart from an ensuite one).
