Woodford House is one of New Zealand’s largest boarding schools for girls and was founded in 1894. It provides us with a very private and peaceful environment only a five-minute drive or ten to fifteen minutes walk to Havelock North village which caters to most tastes in coffee, food, and shopping. The school offers a full-size pool for cooling off in the summer heat so bring swimming gear.

As you would expect for one of New Zealand’s largest boarding schools Woodford House is able to offer single-student rooms with all the amenities usual for a boarding school. Initial availability is 100 single rooms. Please note rooms can only be booked for Friday and Saturday nights. Nights before and after are not an option due to Woodford having other booking commitments.

Options available are

  • 112 x Single rooms
  • 29 x double rooms

When booking please note if a single or double room required. Cost per person is the same for double or single rooms.

Please note bookings will need to close by 15th December 2023
