    Our platters are very popular with guests! These are large enough for two people to share & are perfect for a light lunch, afternoon tea, or as a lighter alternative to an evening meal. A typical platter includes a selection of salami, cheese, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, carrot sticks, fruit, dip, bread & butter pickles, & crackers. Teamed with a bottle of wine it is a wonderful way to relax on the deck while taking in the views of the hills beyond. Please note: platters must be ordered ahead of time if wanting one upon arrival, or at least six hours notice if requesting one during your stay. Please let us know ahead of time if you would prefer gluten-free crackers with your platter. ~ Standard Platter = $65 ~ Each room has a small selection of wines, which are available for purchase = $20/$45 View full Huntington article

    For the safety & welfare of our guests, ourselves & the property, Huntington Stables Retreat is a smoke-free establishment. We must insist on no smoking or vaping inside any room, near open doorways or windows, on any deck or balcony, anywhere near the yoga room, meditation garden, aviary or pool area. Should you need to smoke, please do this away from the room, other guests, & any animals. We kindly suggest you do this at the top or bottom of the drive. Please take the plain saucer under the kitchen sink with you for butts & leave it outside your room. We will remove these when we service the rooms. DO NOT take your butts inside the room, & please DO NOT put them in the rubbish! Please take care to extinguish all cigarettes & matches. There is a smoking policy in the black information folder in each room. Please take a few minutes to read it. Many thanks - we truly appreciate your cooperation. View full Huntington article

    Whilst we endeavour to provide a luxurious experience for our valued guests, we are continually looking for ways to improve our RESPONSIBLE TOURISM performance. We welcome suggestions & ideas from our guests to help us achieve this objective, & we sincerely thank you for considering the environment. As a retreat & with a focus on 'Mindful Living' we actively undertake the following: - to conserve water & power whenever possible. This includes turning off all appliances in rooms when guests are out for the day. This includes heat pumps, air conditioning, fans, music, lamps, & heated towel rails. These are NOT to be left on during the day when you are away from your room. - to encourage the re-using of towels/linen rather than changing them each day of your stay. If wet these will be dried for you, or you are welcome to hang them on the portable towel rack outside on the deck, or bring the rack inside near the window. - to use appliances that are modern & energy efficient. - to use 'on demand' gas water heating. - to recycle & compost whatever we can. All paper, tin, glass & plastic is recycled. Food scraps are composted or given to the chooks who in turn produce delicious eggs! - to use environmentally friendly cleaning products where possible. - to produce pure, clean, & delicious drinking water via tanks & a bore that run through a top quality, four stage UV filtration system. - to source locally produced goods, & support local businesses/artists. To all guests we ask that you be mindful of waste, water & power! In addition, in a bid to reduce plastic waste, we ask you NOT to bring bottled water - ours is just as good! We truly appreciate your co-operation x View full Huntington article
