Black Barn Retreats and Covid-19

A Black Barn Retreat is the perfect baycation location; they're ideal spots to escape to post-lockdown, are brilliant for 2,4,6,8 or 10 of you and where open wide spaces come with the territory. 

The majority of our retreats can be booked online if you live in New Zealand, for those that cannot reservation enquiries are just an email away.

COVID-19 and international bookings


New Zealand’s borders are currently closed to all non-New Zealand residents. If you wish to proceed with a booking in anticipation of these rules relaxing please note the following:

- Bookings from Australia and the Pacific Islands:
We will accept bookings for visits from March 2021.

If 60 days out from your check-in date the New Zealand border has not opened to your country/state of origin you would be required to either cancel the booking ($250 cancellation fee) or pay the balance in full in anticipation of borders opening, at this point your booking would become non-refundable. 

- Bookings from the rest of the world:
We will accept bookings for visits from May 1, 2021. Booking enquiries can be made from each retreat page.
