Tangiaro Lodge is the brainchild of New Zealanders, Bruce and Anne Clegg, who purchased this land (approx 800 acres), in 2000. They were pleased to have secured this extremely valuable piece of New Zealand flora and fauna, and the majority of the land has been protected by the QE II Natural Trust.
The Department of Conservation regards this block as extremely important, as it is home to one of the highest populations of kiwi birds on privately-owned land in the Coromandel.
Bruce and Anne developed the concept of an eco-tourist retreat in 2001 and went about designing and procuring the necessary consents to make this happen. In August 2002 final resource consent was granted.
The concept for the property is to create a unique retreat, with modern, self-contained, stand-alone chalets that will give guests the opportunity to fully experience the unique flora and fauna that exists on this key ecological site.
A Few Words from Bruce & Anne Clegg
Founders of Tangiaro Lodge.
“When Anne and I first saw Tangiaro, our first thoughts were that we wanted to make sure the natural beauty of the surroundings would be maintained for future generations. Later, we decided that we wanted to share its beauty with others. Four years later, after much blood, sweat – and a few tears – we have built a property that we are proud of and would love you to experience.” – Bruce Clegg.
“Bruce and I are pleased that we are ready to have guests at Tangiaro. We’ve put a lot of thought into what we’ve done and we look forward to seeing you. The team will always welcome you with a warm greeting and do all they can to make your visit a great one.” – Anne Clegg.
