A GLAMPING WEEKEND AWAY

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ya know those insanely picturesque, dreamy locations that spike wanderlust into you faster than you can say Pinterest!?

Yeah, this was one of them. The best part being that if you live in Auckland, it’s only a two and a half hour drive away, talk about the perfect romantic weekend! Liam and I were so incredibly lucky to have found Old Coach Glamping through the Romer App which is an awesome new app recently launched in Auckland that is your ultimate go-to when looking for an awesome experience to indulge yourself in, such as glamping!

The lovely Tracey and Graeme who have set up this beautiful location on their gorgeous property have totally decked it out to make it the most magical, yet comfortable glamping experience New Zealand has to offer. Complete with a bottle of marshmallows to roast, chopped up wood ready to be thrown into the fire and a seat perfect for cuddling up outside, roasting marshmallows and taking in the beautiful scenic view, including some goat friends!

The tent is decorated BEAUTIFULLY. It’s like a bohemian oasis with the cosiest, comfiest bed, fluffy dressing gowns, and even hot water bottles (it gets chilly!). It’s incredibly clean and cosy and is absolutely perfect for those who are a little bit too high maintenance for camping (all though I LOVE camping). The best part for us was waking up naturally in the morning to the birds chirping and the silent sound of the countryside.

What is the perfect glamping spot without an outdoor bath surrounded by trees and candles? The next morning we treated ourselves to an early morning hot bath overlooking the country side. With provided bubble bath and flickering candles there was no place I would have rather been in the world. What a blissful moment.

The cabin includes a kitchen with a stove, oven and even a table and bar stools to sit and enjoy your breakfast one! We decided to head up the road and buy some pancake mix and bacon to cook up on Sunday morning and it was so much fun cooking pancakes in such a different location!

You guys can experience this amazing place by booking here! Thank you so much to Romer App and Old Coach Glamping for having us! We absolutely loved our weekend away and I couldn’t recommend this spot more for your next romantic weekend adventure!
