Away from the City

In our tranquil Potting Shed Cabin

Lovingly refurbished using reclaimed timber, the Potting Shed overlooks Waimauku Valley & the Woodhill Forrest. Close enough to Muriwai Beach that you can hear the waves at night amongst the calls of native morepork birds.

The story of the Potting Shed Cabin

The Potting Shed Cabin was the first building created here at Tanglewood.

Peter added the cabin when he first arrived on the land and named it the Potting Shed after one of his favourite places in Oregon, a McMenamins building that was an old refurbished planting & potting shed for the vegetable gardens.

When Stacey & Riccardo arrived, the Potting Shed was in need of a little love. They fixed some rotten wood, and insulated the cabin using recycled plastic bottles and salvaged native timber. The roof was replaced with a copper roof and the outside shower was created.

The Potting Shed Cabin is now the perfect place to escape for a few days. An off-grid experience with the most spectacular sunset views over the valley and native bird life.

The Potting Shed boasts an alfresco dining area with woodfired oven and an outdoor shower as well as an option to use the Woodfired Hot-tub which overlooks the valley. It is DIY fill and heat, however we can provide firewood for a small fee.
