The Woolshed at Ruapuke is situated at the base of Mount Karioi on an 850 acre working dry stock farm. It has commanding views of Ruapuke Beach and out to Gannet Island. The expansive views also incorporate extensive farmland and up to Mount Karioi. The radiant pohutukawa?s attract abundant Tui in the spring, as well as the two resident Wood Pigeons which enhance the peace and beauty of this location. It is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet relaxing holiday, while Raglan is just a 15 minute drive away to enjoy the cafés and boutique shops.
Alternatively the Woolshed offers a central location for an adventure packed holiday. Ruapuke beach is a five minute drive to the Southern End or a 10 minute drive to the Northern end if you enjoy surfing or fishing. Horse riding is available within ten minutes or visit the popular Bridal Veil Falls. The Wairake walking track on the southern side of Mount Karioi is just ten minutes walk to the start of the track. Additionally the Pipiwharauroa Walking and Biking Trail on the Wharauroa Plateau is a must for keen cyclists or guests whom have an interest in the Te Uku Wind Farm. The opportunities are endless with paddle boarding, kite surfing, surfing at Whale Bay and Manu Bay, kayaking in the harbour, or a game of golf on the 18 hole country course all available within Raglan.
The Woolshed has been converted with a fresh contemporary feel inside. It has double glazing and insulation to provide optimum warmth and comfort. It also offers a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious open plan living area. The bedrooms and bathroom are spacious and the laundry is located down stairs where the Woolshed is still in its original condition. There is plenty of locked storage below for the surboards and fishing rods. The deck offers panoramic views and all day sun.

Gorgeous house in a perfect location- rolling green farmland views out of every window. Really we'll equipped. We loved sitting on the deck for breakfast in the mornings and sitting in drinking wine and playing all the board games in the evenings!! We loved it here and we would definitely go back again!
AMAZING property. Very clean and organized. Everything felt brand new and very well cared for. Very secluded and pleasant experience. Beautiful views of rolling hills as well as the ocean. We were able to catch a couple of amazing sunsets from the deck and my kids really enjoyed being able to see the cows roaming the farm. The property is fenced off so no worries of livestock getting too close :). We can't wait to go back.
We had a wonderful stay in the Woolshed which had stunning views of the sea. It was spotless clean, plenty of room, comfortable and well equipped. We highly recommend this place for a weekend away/holiday.
Location was pretty special. Mt Karioi was so close, and it was pretty special watching the sun set to the West. A hidden gem I think. The converted woolshed was very cool, and all the family enjoyed staying in Ruapuke.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful bach. Bach was immaculate and had everything we needed plus more!!! - a home away from home with stunning views too. Highly recommend!!
Location was perfect - a remote, quiet and picturesque setting. The Woolshed was warm and comfortable, and had been nicely renovated. The views were outstanding. Definitely want to stay there again.
