Brackenridge Country Retreat & Spa - the perfect place to meet, learn & invigorate.

Whether you are planning a small, private or large conference, meeting or function, Brackenridge is, quite simply, the most flexible space in the Wairarapa. Catering for up to 150 people, Brackenridge specialises in hosting small to medium events, with a main room for presentations that divides into two large meeting rooms and a further two smaller break out spaces. Perfect for a changing daily programme.

Brackenridge is superb for those small team planning meetings with access to meet in one of the ten onsite cottages; this provides delegates with a private space to meet as well as accommodate.

Had enough of being indoors? Brackenridge has a great veranda space for meetings, workshops, dinners or simply breakfast to start the day’s proceedings. The white rose garden and manicured lawn are surrounded by a back drop of rolling hills which provides a beautiful background for your event. Filling each room with plenty of natural light, Brackenridge is a delightful destination venue with local produce catering, a bar stocked with the finest Martinborough wines and accommodation onsite.
