Your home away from home at our beautiful comfy farm cottages.

The Historic Annie's Cottage and The Fishermans Cottage are set in the heart of beautiful rural Hawke's Bay farm land at "Waiwhenua". A large intensive sheep, cattle and deer farm. The three bedroom cottages are fully self-contained and offer extensive views over farm land and beyond to the cliffs of the trout filled Tutaekuri River. They provide private and quiet surroundings. A special place to wind down, relax and enjoy your stay.

You are welcome to visit the historic Waiwhenua Homestead and explore the extensive gardens or take a swim in the cool pool on those hot summer days. In addition to our wonderful swimming pool at the homestead we have an excellent swimming and trout fishing river on the property. We can guide you to the best fishing holes on the river (season October - May) Rental equipment and a local Fishing Guide can be available with prior arrangements.

Soak up the atmosphere of a working family Hawkes Bay farm. Enjoy the hospitality of your hosts Kirsty and Gary and family at the Waiwhenua historic homestead for a swim, coffee, or a cool drink on the veranda or just a chat.
