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.

    If you are looking for peace, tranquility and privacy this is the place to come. Beautiful location and lovely hosts. Sitting outside at night gazing at the many stars was bliss. The cottage was comfortable, warm and cozy. Loved the old dog and the chooks, in fact I loved everything about this property. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get away from city life. Thank you Cherie and hubby for the eggs, honey and fejoas and your hospitality ??
