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.

Animal lovers can take play with Roxy our gentle dog, or take Amber the miniature pony for a walk down the lane or through the orchard. Horse riding for children can often be arranged.

    Great family accomodation for our stay in the Hawkes Bay area for the annual cricket camps. Perfect location for families with boys at cricket camp - just outside Hastings (on the Napier side) and close to most of the grounds we played on. I would highly recommend the venue.

    We booked Dewdrop cottage as we had been let down with our accomodation elsewhere, Wendy was delightful to deal with and the cottage, simply a home away from home!. Both my daughters loved the gardens, Roxy the dog and amber the little pony, us adults loved the peace and quiet!. I would not hesitate to return and look forward to dealing with Wendy and her family again. Thank you for a great stay.

  • We had a fantastic stay

    We had a fantastic stay. Thank you for the complimentary wine and the little gift for my b'day! Great location handy to Napier and Hastings. Cottage is very well equipped, neat and tidy. Was lovely to sit outside admiring the beautiful garden and to lounge on the comfy couches in front of the telly :) Kids enjoyed the toys, bicycles and especially the foosball table! Wendy was always on hand to give advice of places to go and they made us feel like part of the family! Can't wait to go again!
