The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton's New Zealand hideaway has been revealed. The young royals have been recovering from their jet lag and a busy day meeting the locals by relaxing with Prince George at a secret hideaway in the grounds of a luxurious Edwardian country house.

According to reports, the stunning £480-a-night cottage the couple are renting is in the grounds of Wharekauhau Lodge in Palliser Bay. It's set amongst 5,500 acres of rolling pasture on a working sheep and cattle farm and boasts simply breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. What a dream.

Kate, Wills and their closest staff are said to have rented 13 cottages on the estate which is surrounded by a police cordon keeping out any unwelcome visitors.

The royals can kick back and relax in the mega luxe cottage which is decked out with a super king size four-poster bed, heated marble floors and a double spa bath. They are also said to have made good use of the 24 metre long indoor swimming pool, gym, and spa.

Sources claim the royal couple have spent most of their time resting and looking after baby Prince George since arriving at the estate after a ceremonial welcome at Governor General Sir Jerry Mateparae's official residence, Government House, in Wellington on Monday.

The £12 million resort, owned by American billionaire William Foley, is a regular haunt for the rich and famous. Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Meg Ryan, Jack Black and Microsoft founder Bill Gates are all rumoured to have stayed there.

We wouldn't expect anything less for these royals.
