Situated in the middle between Napier and Hastings this well appointed, self-contained cottage is ideally placed for guests to enjoy the many and varied activities Hawkes Bay has to offer.

Nestled in among the native garden, you'll enjoy the bird song that is in full chorus, particularly at beginning and end of the day. The cottage shares the garden with our main house, but you have your own private area to relax and enjoy the surroundings. You have a smart TV to relax in front of also.

You can enjoy the many restaurants and cafes the district has to offer, or cook your own dinner on the BBQ provided.Afterwards relax in the outdoor bath.

Enjoy a stroll down the river, or to the beach, through your private gated access, or if you feel more energetic hop on a bike and enjoy the stunning scenery on the cycle trails. You can access the cycle trails that lead into Napier, Havelock North and Taradale from here. If you end up at a winery and can't manage the ride home we'll even pick you up if we're available!

Elephant Hill, Clearview and Te Awanga Wineries are close by, or visit the many Hawkes Bay has on offer. Close to the world class Cape Kidnappers Golf course, also Waiohiki, Bridge Pa, Awatoto, Mangateretere and Golflands in Hastings.

Other local attractions are the Cape Kidnappers Gannet Colony, British Car Museum. Farmyard Zoo and various artist studios.

    River Cottage is a delightful spot! The grounds and setting nestled in among the ferns with the little bush track, water- fall and goldfish pond give it an almost Lord of the Rings ambiance. Fun to go through the garden gate to access the river walk to the beach. Even though the weather was cold and wet the unit was delightfully cosy and so peaceful. We loved the location just a couple of minutes walk from Clive village and and near wineries and cafes in the area. Can't wait to return!
