"This two bedroom cottage has real charm", House and Garden magazine (UK).

A fully renovated 1940s bungalow, Big Tom's Cottage features two beautifully appointed double bedrooms, each with its own ensuite.

The house can suit two couples, or a couple and three children (we can split the king and add another single bed). A cot is available.

Big Tom’s Cottage has a fully modern interior with all the modern conveniences. The cottage also has an indoor fireplace stocked with wood... A barbeque in the large outdoor living area... And it has an outdoor wood-fire bath to soak in the evenings watching the stars.

Enjoy the warm weather in the spacious open plan living area that opens onto outdoor decks… boasting some of the best views in Hawke’s Bay.

The cottage is on farmland, nestled in native bush and a small forestry block, so you are in complete privacy.

Being at the cottage totally immerses you in nature, but for day excursions you have adventure and culture on your doorstep... Near the cottage you’ll have…

World-class wineries Craggy Range, Elephant Hill, Clearview only a brief drive away.

Trout fishing, picnics and adventures for teenagers at the Tuki Tuki river, at a walking distance.

Havelock North’s outstanding restaurants are only ten minutes drive. Napier and it’s Art Deco are twenty five minutes.

And the gorgeous, huge sandy beaches Ocean Beach & Waimarama are 15 and 20 minutes drive away respectively. The beaches are safe to swim in, and have surf breaks.

All our guests enjoy a complimentary country inspired breakfast of free-range eggs, fresh bread, home-made conserves, milk, cereal, coffee, tea and fresh seasonal fruits.

We deliver your supplies when you arrive, but after that you're left in complete privacy unless you need us.

The property has a special charm that almost all our guests are struck by. So come, and enjoy the sunsets over Te Mata Peak, and spend some time under the stars in your wood fired bath.
