‘Bespoke’ reflects how the guesthouse has been converted into a ‘custom made’ home away from home. Featuring a stylish, relaxed, private living space overlooking paddocks on a rural, working property.

Bespoke also incorporates the cycle theme - the ‘spoke’ of a bicycle – due to the abundance of cycle trails in sunny Hawkes Bay. The ‘Puketapu Ramble’ loop starts at the end of the driveway and is a gentle 17 km ride (with links to other trails for a longer cycle). This trail runs along either side of the Tutaekuri River through picturesque rural farmland and takes in the award winning Puketapu Country Pub. Do the loop or simply cycle to the local store for an icecream, or the pub for a locally made wine.

‘Molly’ and ‘Connor’ the resident cruiser bikes are there for your use. There are also excellent mountain bike tracks 20 minutes away at Eskdale (mountain bikes can be hired on request).
