Description

  • Over the road from the meandering Tutaekuri River.
  • Amongst the Dartmoor Valley vineyards
  • 20 minutes to either Napier or Hastings by car

The Shed is set in its own private garden with an outdoor area to enjoy, set on a 15 acre seasonal cropping/grazing property. The Shed was previously used as a pack-house, when the farm was run as a full time orchard and the flat attached was staff accommodation and office.

It has everything you need for a stay in the Bay... just bring your choice of food and relax.

Situated half way between Napier and Hastings it is a great location for exploring the Bay and there is plenty of parking space.

The local pub with good pub fare and a relaxed family atmosphere is a 5 minute drive away. Taradale village is a 10 min drive for shopping as well as summer concerts and wineries.

Hawkes Bay's 2 hockey turfs are approx 15mins drive away in each direction.

The Tutaekuri River is handy for both fishing and swimming.

Hawkes Bay cycle trails are all easily accessible... particularly the popular Puketapu loop.

The Shed is set among well established trees, so is cool in summer and has a toasty log fire to keep you warm in the winter.

Please note that seasonal activities in the valley include bird scaring Feb through March and frost fighting in the spring time. Spark has good cell reception but Vodafone can be patchy.

Arrival time is after 4pm unless confirmed prior to arrival and departure time before 11am. Leaving The Shed tidy on departure is appreciated.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shed

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shed. We had read good reviews but still, our expectations were exceeded. The bach is super clean and spacious and beds are very comfortable. The fire kept us toasty warm and the kids loved the boxes of toys and kids books. The surrounding area is beautiful and there is a handy park with flying fox down the road. We will definitely be back! Thank you to our hosts.

    Located in a beautiful part of the Hawkes Bay, we found the property location to be perfect for our needs. It was a fairly quick drive into either Napier or Hastings, and very scenic along the way. The property had nice warm bedding and electric blankets which we needed! Plenty of space for the kids to run around outside and a lovely dog to play with. We were very happy.

    Beautiful property with everything you could need, even boxes of toys for the children. A quiet rural setting but easy to get to. I can't think of a single negative. Highly recommended.
