Phil McCabe and Bernadette Gavin yearned to find a place where visitors could reconnect with nature through sustainable, eco-conscious living.
After leaving the nest and gaining inspiration abroad, the duo returned home to Raglan, only to discover that what they'd been searching for was right here in their own backyard.
Tucked away in a pocket of calm, you'll discover Solscape. A village of recycled railway cabooses, earth domes and a Tipi Forest, set in lush, native New Zealand bush. Solscape is much more than just an idyllic holiday destination for visiting tourists, it's a retreat and wellness escape embedded within a thriving community eager to reconnect visitors with the beauty of the natural realm.
For the adventurous, there's the local surf school, yoga centre, massage and holistic teachings. There's sustainable permaculture workshops and gardening classes, as well as a delicious on-site cafe, The Conscious Kitchen, who serve up plant-rich, eco-cuisine.
This week, we're giving one lucky Dish reader the chance to relax and unwind a little differently, surrounded by Raglan's natural beauty. We're giving away one night's stay in a Solscape Tipi, followed by a wholesome breakfast for two. With skilled instructors and friendly faces on hand to make sure your experience is truly worthwhile, Solscape will stick with you long after you head home.
This competition has now closed.
Solscape's self-contained accomodation offers a comfortable, private stay for couples, families or small groups.
For those happy to share facilities, take your pick from recycled railway cabooses and earth domes or experience glamping in our Tipi Forest set in native bush.
