Rural Retreat in Havelock North

 Good central location to Havelock North and the local wineries which we were visiting. The property is very roomy and the location is country and very quiet. 

Rural Retreat at the Berry Farm  Close To Hastings

 Handy to everything, plenty of space, private and very comfortable. Loved the apples and grapes, and the boysenberry jam is the best.

Rural Retreat at the Berry Farm  Close To Hastings

 Lots of room, has a queen and single sized beds, separate kitchen, outside BBQ, table and umbrella in a fenced off area. Nice and private. So close to Hastings for restaurants, cafe's, etc. Napier is close as is the Te Mata Peak. We highly recommend this bach if you are looking for peace.
