Welcoming a new retreat to its more than idyllic surrounds, Queenstown’s latest offering has us already planning a mid year sojourn. Perched on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, Sherwood offers ever-impressive views of the dramatic Remarkables ranges and a chance to unwind and reconnect with nature.

The recently overhauled residency presents an authentic take on the classic Southern escape. With accommodation options available from secluded studios to ample shared spaces, Sherwood is hoping to capitalise on providing a suitable environment to house those looking for a sense of place and an escape from the pressure of modern life. Ensuring all guests feel suitably at home is the addition of inviting touches such as crackling fireplaces and sheepskin throws over the backs of chairs.

A cathartic series of activities is also ready for the undertaking; bike trails, garden reading, snoozes in the outdoor teepee along with plenty of yoga classes, should you not be engaging in any of the local piste action. After a long day of adventuring, guests can retire to the comfort of the restaurant and accompanying bar to dine on a menu of fresh seasonal soul food curated from, amongst other things, foraging in their on-site garden, washed down with one of the ever- changing selection of craft beers, fine natural wines and rare spirits. We suggest you get ready to be refreshed and reinvigorated.
