Welcome to the Greytown Village Blog!


This is a place where you can discover all the latest breaking news, scandalous gossip and insider secrets of this wonderful little village that I am lucky enough to call home.

A little bit of background information- Greytown is a rural town (population 2020 and climbing!) nestled in the heart of the Wairarapa region in the lower North Island of New Zealand. It's known for its super cute Victorian era wooden houses, boutique shopping and gourmet food, and its many magnificent and verdant trees. I like to think of it as a little oasis of sylvan chic- a grown-up version of an Enid Blyton novel. 

Greytown was recently crowned New Zealand Most Beautiful Small Town- something that those 'in the know' knew all along, but hey, a little external validation never hurt anyone!

We promise not to get to big for our britches, though. We're just going to keep doing what we do best- running awesome creative local businesses, treasuring our lovely history and natural environment, and just generally making this place as welcoming and magical as we can for anyone who takes the time to stop by.

So whether you're planning a weekend getaway or thinking of moving here for good, I hope this blog will be a valuable resource for you in terms of discovering fantastic things to see and do. If theres something you'd like to see on here, get in touch!
