Pencarrow Lodge began as cottage built to house a farm worker to keep an eye on the coastal side of the farm to prevent cattle rustling.
The small cottage was transformed into an expansive lodge catering to the corporate and social market.
Two types of sheep dogs, the silent working dogs and the New Zealand Huntaway.

Fetching the sheep.

Keeping a watchful eye on the herd.
Good herding dogs control sheep calmly without excessive commotion.
New Zealand Huntaway uses it's loud, deep bark to drive sheep. Farmers like this characteristic for driving sheep on rough, steep hill country where the dog may disappear from view.
Pencarrow Lodge is situated between Pencarrow and Baring Head lighthouses in Fitzroy Bay at the entrance to Wellington Harbor.
