Welcome to the Woolshed

Welcome to the Woolshed

The Woolshed is a farm of 136 acres situated on the hills of Pukerua Bay, clothed in 40 acres of native bush, including some of the last remaining stands of kohekohe on the Kapiti Coast. The original Woolshed building with its stunning views over Kapiti Island has been converted into a home and retreat spaces, as well as work and seminar spaces for up to 20. The Woolshed is gardened organically – herbs, vegetables and fruit – and has three springs of clear water. Pamela Meekings-Stewart is the owner and manager of ‘this little piece of paradise’. Nature in all her hues and moods is nurtured and respected here and as well as offering retreat and workshop spaces, The Woolshed hosts an open Druid Grove (Spirit in Nature) celebrating the eight Seasonal Festivals of the year and a Full Moon Circle for women.


Escape. Rest. Reflect. Rejuvenate.
The Woolshed offers a secluded retreat cabin in beautiful garden surroundings and two retreat rooms in-house dedicated to your Total Pampering. Spaces accommodate one person or a couple.


An Essential Treat!
Shiatsu (Namakoshi), Therapeutic Massage and Specialist Massage (i.e. Pregnancy Massage, etc.) are all delicious therapies available at The Woolshed. Also available as part of our Woolshed Retreats.

“When I was looking for a home and some land to open a health retreat more than 20 years ago, my criteria were a view of the sea, pure spring water, native bush, within commuting distance from Wellington and free of power pylons. It took me three years to find the perfect place and on a breathless, crisp, sunny day in August I stepped onto the land and knew I was home. You could say that the land sang to me.”



Away from it all…
The Woolshed is an ideal Venue for workshops and business meetings with large and small spaces for 6 to 20 participants.
