The heady scent of woodland gardens greets you as you make your way beneath towering Oaks, Chestnuts, Larches, Redwoods and Cedars and emerge from the dappled shadows to an inviting vista of this gracious historic country homestead.
On entering you are immediately aware of the welcoming atmosphere as you are drawn into another era. Large airy rooms, polished wooden floors, open fires and wood panelling all add to the 1920's character.
For those who are searching for a quiet retreat far from the pressures of city life, Okuku offers a relaxed, comfortable yet uniquely gracious style of accommodation.
