"I always come away from Sheryl’s workshops with a warm sense of commeraderie and a lot more knowledge than I began them with! The setting is absolutely stunning and the learning well paced and fun. Her morning teas are to die for - who knew such exquisite food could also be so nourishing!"

Lesley Burkett, Taumarunui



"Absolutely fabulous! We loved everything about the place. Spacious, well equipped and comfortable, Rua Awa Lodge is set in an exquisite country setting, with beautiful bush walking tracks down to the Whanganui River. Our favourite stay of our 2 month tour of New Zealand (and that's saying something!).”

This place is a gem.
I have reviewed hotels for 20 years, never did I find more gracious hosts or a more charming accommodation. All accommodations reflect the souls of the proprietors, and these two are among the more engaging folks I have met in a country that sets a high standard for service and charm.
