Glengariff is a large country house built in 1877, and one of the Waikato's best kept secrets. The early pioneer Kauri homestead is set in peaceful rural surroundings some 700 metres off the road, overlooking the lush Waikato countryside.

Nestled in the heart of the Waikato, only 6 minutes from Hamilton Airport, 10 minutes from Cambridge and 15 minutes from Hamilton and Te Awamutu, Glengariff is ideally placed, being an easy drive from Auckland Airport, Rotorua and Waitomo Caves.

Glengariff offers exclusive use of its facilities for small intimate weddings, special family occasions, conferences and team building workshops in a quiet and secluded setting. The large gable-ended conservatory with Macrocarpa ceiling and heart Rimu floor provides a peaceful setting for relaxing with the charm and elegance of yester-year.

The original bell tower, originally used as a look-out in earlier times, was lost during renovations, but has been replaced by a larger distinctive belvedere providing a panoramic view of the countryside.
