About Us

Annandale, a working farm bounded by the sparkling waters of the Pacific, offers couples, groups and families exclusive use of its four unique properties. Make the experience your own by choosing the activities and level of service that suit you Our Vision- Sample rural New Zealand at its best – off the tourist trail and in an area of outstanding beauty and drama lies Annandale, a pioneering sheep and cattle farm that offers four distinctive luxury villas with relaxed Kiwi-style informality. We offer guests an opportunity to relax in total privacy and make the experience their own: explore the spectacular farm with its 10 kilometres of coastline and connect with your surroundings, share precious time with friends and family, and indulge in the finest local produce.
Our People- The Annandale team is made up of a pretty happy bunch of New Zealanders. We’re proud of this incredible place and what we do here. In fact, most days it’s not like working at all!
Our Location - The unique landscape of Banks Peninsula was formed by a series of volcanic eruptions between 11 and 8 million years ago. Located to the south of Christchurch, the biggest city on New Zealand’s South Island, Banks Peninsula’s exposed contours and complex coastline are breathtakingly dramatic yet largely undiscovered. Small communities full of artisans and farmers have established in some of its bays, although many remain completely undeveloped.Click herefor directions.
Villas- Switch off and log out for an authentic Kiwi experience. Nothing but the birdsong will disturb you here. Each of our properties has its own distinctive character, but whichever you choose, privacy and relaxation are guaranteed Homestead The Stables Shepherd';s Cottage Seascape Scrubby Bay Annandale Farm- There has been a farm at Annandale since the 1840s and today it boasts 4,000 acres of dramatic coastal pasture, which is home to around 500 head of beef cattle and between 7,000 and 14,000 sheep, depending on the season. We pride ourselves on our sustainable farming practices and our healthy livestock. Our aim is to breed the finest stock for the most delicious meat and best quality wool, and to provide world-class accommodation with relaxed, Kiwi-style informality.
Dine- Fresh and delicious local produce is a hallmark of a stay at Annandale. Whichever dining option you choose, our cuisine will be an experience to savour. Private Chef - With advanced notice, you can hire your own personal chef for a special meal or for your entire stay, providing you with choices of a 3 course restaurant presented menu or alternatively a casual grazing style menu where each course is placed in the middle of the table and invites you to pass the dishes around.
We create, you serve - For a farm to table experience that won’t compromise your privacy, our award winning chef will create a morning riser breakfast menu, a superb picnic lunch and a gourmet 3 course dinner based on our locavore philosophy and any dietaries or special cravings communicated in advance. The meal will be delivered to your villa with easy to follow instructions allowing you to simply complete the finishing touches before enjoying some of Annandale’s finest cuisine.
Experiences - Annandale’s magnificent location provides a wealth of opportunities for adventure and discovery right on your doorstep. Click hereto learn more.

Back at the farm, you can even join the chef for a hands-on cooking class. The four distinctive villas include an ultramodern escape for couples and the fully restored 19th-century homestead that sleeps up to 12.
