Jen and Dewi welcome you to what they believe is a truly "luxe Travel" experience in todays global market.
"Housewithnonails" is a uniquely handcrafted rustic Barn stay with a STORY. The CRAFTSMAN took a mallet and chisel in his hand and fashioned locally sourced trees into a huge wooden frame, after an ANCIENT BUILDING METHOD. Handhewn "tree nails" fasten this traditional joinery beamed masterpiece, erected on one wonderful and spectacular Barn Raising Day by a small community of family and friends.
Here you experience what it feels like to be surrounded by a STORY of resourcefulness. The sweet aroma of tannin in aged wood as you settle to sleep. The feel of steel coolness in a stone INGLENOOK set in a character kitchen HOSTING A warm SOLID FUEL COOKER . An old Totara fencepost mantle,adorned with a summer harvest of flowers drying above. A copper sink from a cowshed set in thick concrete slabbed benches. You will wonder at the skill of a local artisan who in his home forge , took fire and bending tools and created one off tailored metal balustrades and candelabras for this three story height.. Your hand will rub over the lime slaked in the earth, rendering rose coloured clay walls and washed floors reminiscent of other ancient traditions. Stylish "re-purposing" of loved objects found along the way tell more stories. An antique claw bath discovered in a field, later resurfaced set in a modern industrial bathroom with gilded mirror and soft white rolls of towels.
it will be the light play at a certain time of the day which will really catch your attention when this panoramic countryside vista comes alive through a a huge glass solarium.
The barn lies in a field surrounded by lush dairy fields, panoramic views of the mountains, waterfalls,hot springs, native bush, and guests savor this utterly tranquil setting.
When you get to this destination the magic begins.
This is where you will experience hospitality on a very personal level. A home made roast dinner with candlelight and soft music. Breakfast in the field looking out to the mountains and hearing just the morning chorus of birds and little more. It will be the curation of a personal days itinerary where one is sent off with a picnic basket and blanket and a bottle of new zenaland wine and shown where to find a private beach all to yourself up back roads only we know. It will be watching the sun set over the plains at the top of the local waterfall and then descending into the pitch dark with torches to discover a world of gloworms and looking up through the bush canopy and catching sight of the milky way.
its knowing where the local beer craftsman carry their brew into the church with the pink door delivery personally by an old firetruck and you can buy your "growler" and taste yet another kind of artisans STORY. its knowing the local guy who has a huge telescope and does'nt mind sharing the stars with you through his lens.
"housewithnonails" is waiting to connect you with these kind of adventure experiences that just sound like you.
