About us

Andy and Robyn love living at Huntington Stables Retreat, in the wonderful Waikato town of Cambridge, NZ. “We love our one acre property, with it views out across green farmland and hills of Maungakawa, and revered significance of Sanctuary Mountain (Maungatautari) in the distance. With an abundance of birdlife, a variety of fruit trees, several gardens, and the excellent pool, spa, sauna area, we feel very fortunate to call this ‘home’. There is a sense of peace and tranquillity from any point on the property, and we proudly stand by our mission to protect and nurture this environment. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our little piece of ‘Middle Earth'”

Environmental Initiatives

As retreat-style accommodation and a focus on mindful living, we choose to:

  • provide clean, delicious drinking water from our bore and tanks
  • conserve water and power
  • re-use towels/linen during a guest’s stay
  • recycle plastic, paper and glass
  • compost food scraps
  • use gentle cleaning products
  • use refillable containers and bottles
  • reuse packaging, bags and bin liners
  • have bee and bird-friendly gardens
  • support Waikato businesses and NZ-made products

Bird Rescue Cambridge

With our love of nature and animals, we have created Bird Rescue Cambridge: a safe-haven for wild birds that require rest and recuperation, babies that need rearing and release, and rehoming of surrendered domestic birds. Many of our released birds have remained here on the property, or for safety reasons live in our aviary. ‘Luna’, an extremely rare, pure white albino sparrow, is one of our long-term residents as featured in Stuff national news See Here
