  • We had a great long weekend away with our two young children

    We had a great long weekend away with our two young children. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed, even a toy box! Despite the cold weather we were very warm and cosy. The cottage is in a very central location with only a short drive to Hastings, Napier and Havelock North. Thank you!

  • We loved this family friendly cottage, it was perfect for our stay...

    We loved this family friendly cottage, it was perfect for our stay in the middle of winter. Warm and cosy during the winter day and nights, with sky, dvd's and toys for the kids to play with when too wet. However we had great days and loved being close to the river cycle trail to walk and explore the massive backyard. Being in Clive we were close to everything, and the cottage was private yet safe and secure. Can't wait to stay in summer and make use of the private pool! Our favourite place yet and we will be back for all our stays. Friendly and easy to contact owners. Thanks so much! Here's to summer bookings!

    Great location and BnB was the perfect layout. Would love to stay in summer to use the pool and huge backyard for the kids!

    We loved the property because it is private and is set in a spacious garden. In the morning we looked out to see rabbits hopping around and a delightful family of quail. The situation was perfect, as it is not far from Napier, Hastings or Havelock North and lots of beautiful countryside. The cottage was warm, cosy and very well set up for guests.

  • Both and cottage and studio were great

    Both and cottage and studio were great. Perfect for our children to play and ride their bikes around the property. It was fantastic to be able to borrow the bikes and make use of the cycle track at the back fence. Great location, very well equipped kitchen, clean & tidy. Thanks Janet & Ray, we would love to book again soon.
