8 of us headed off from Havelock to walk 4 hours into Nydia Bay and were treated to a very warm 'family' welcome by Duncan, Tom, Norma and 'grandad'. Given tea and coffee and homemade biscuits we spent the afternoon relaxing, exploring, taking turns in the lovely hot tub and making use of their library.
Beautiful 2 course meal in the evening was complemented with some lovely Marlborough wines, scrumptious breakfast the next day set us up for the 5 hour walk out, armed with one of Norma's lovely packed lunches.
The atmosphere at On the Track Lodge is quite special, your hosts have the rare knack of making you feel very welcome, without being too intrusive for those who are seeking respite from lots of people.
The beds are comfy, everything is spotless, the decor in the chalets and train carriage is tasteful - we could have stayed ages!More
