After watching the sunrise while enjoying breakfast on the patio (or at the dining table) you can go for a walk or explore the numerous wineries and restaurants in every direction, visit Splash Planet, go shopping, go cycling on cycle trail, take a walk or simply relax in the comfortable lounge suite and enjoy country peace.

    Lovely place to stay, especially if you have children. Very close to everything. Wendy and John were very friendly and made us all feel right at home.

    Wendy and John are wonderful hosts and Dewdrop Cottage is the perfect base for a holiday in Hawke’s Bay. We loved the views over the flowers to the paddocks, feeding the horses, the strong water pressure and the genuinely friendly hosts who live about 50 metres away in a separate house on the same property. The kitchen is well equipped and the linen is high quality. We are a family of 4 and stayed 10 nights and would definitely stay again!
