Raglan, Waikato, New Zealand

Te Papatapu is a sparsely populated but tightly-knit harbourside community, located 30 minutes from Raglan, 40 minutes from Kawhia and 15 minutes from Ruapuke Beach. The short drive to Te Papatapu feels like going back in time to a kiwi childhood full of rolling farmland and native bush. Our neighbours include farmers, beekeepers and the local farrier.
