We have a tidy, comfortable cottage in a quiet, secluded, picturesque valley south of Hastings. It has a small, sunny patio area with outdoor table & chairs, and in summer there is a para pool, and a BBQ for you to use.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with a bench top oven, bench top hobs and a microwave. A continental breakfast is supplied, as is tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper, oil & flour etc. A simple evening meal can be requested when you book.
There is a separate bedroom with a queen bed, and a fold out double couch in the lounge. We have 2 kiddie sized, covered foam mattresses that can be put in the bedroom . Extra adult $10/child $5.
Cottage has fabulous views of rock outcrops, green paddocks and native trees. With the neighbours permission it is possible to walk to the rocks or to the top of the hill opposite our place.
We use organic principles to produce our fruit, olives and vegetables. We have beehives for honey and vines to make our own red wine. We are also experimenting with truffle inoculated oaks. You are welcome to participate with any beekeeping, winemaking, distilling or other activities happening during your stay.
We live 20 minutes south of Hastings, close to the famous Tuki Tuki and Waipawa trout fishing rivers. We can offer information on the superb local wineries, and Art Deco Napier is only 35 mins away. Other local attractions include: Cape Kidnappers gannet colony; Splash Planet; the National Aquarium; Arataki Honey House; Te Mata Peak; bushwalks for all fitness levels; Silky Oak Chocolate factory; superb golf courses including the world famous Cape Kidnappers; bike trails, and the winery bike trail … plus much more.
We have a gentle staffie called Poppy, 2 ducks - Petunia and Pansy, and 4 hens. We are pet friendly ... please keep in mind our poultry is free-range if you are visiting with a dog.
Please join us on your first evening to share a glass of wine or liqueur.

 Great bach with everything you needed in a beautiful quiet setting. Easy access to hastings, havelock north and napier.Hosts were great and couldn't have done more. Will definitely recommend and stay again! 

 The hosts are lovely as is the property. We so enjoyed them answering all our questions about their various endeavours. Only wish we could have stayed longer! 

 Great little place to stay, amazing views to wake up too, weather was great, couldn't ask for better. Lovely people to deal with. Place is great and got most things, It's a perfect place to get away and relax. Thanks Cherie for a lovely stay and letting us bring our little dogs :) 

 We loved our stay at the cottage. There were gorgeous views and the cottage is comfortable and neat. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were away most of the day, and they happily took care of our puppy without us asking for them to do so. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a peaceful and picturesque getaway. 

 Loved all of it.
