Are you looking for a peaceful rural retreat in Central Hawke's Bay? Our studio accommodation is located across a wide driveway from our home which is set on 5 acres of farmland that is gradually being turned into vegetable and flower gardens with a small orchard.

Ash studio is a stand alone unit attached to a garage with a private deck and fully fenced garden. Sit back, relax and enjoy spectacular views of the Ruahine ranges.

- Explore the surrounding villages and wineries

- Hike or tramp in nearby Ruahine Park

- Fish the Tukituki, Waipawa, or tributary rivers

- Travel to Hastings or Napier along scenic Highway 50 and check out the many vineyards on the way

- Play golf at a choice of 3 courses within 15 minutes

Pets are welcome with prior approval and we have room for more than dogs! Dogs are allowed inside the studio, but not on the furniture. We have a friendly Cavalier, a cat and several chickens, 2 ducks and some Wiltshire sheep.

The studio has cooking facilities, however, if you are self-catering please remember the nearest shop is 15 minutes away.

Please note our internet is wireless but not strong and the property is television free, although we have a range of DVDs to borrow.

Cleaning is included, but we ask that you please leave unit tidy. Linen is also provided, however, a one night stay will incur a supplement charge.

  • Lovely peaceful property

    Lovely peaceful property. Great kitchen, well stocked with appliances, crockery etc. Nice big bathroom and good water pressure in the shower. Comfortable bed. Nothing nicer than sitting on the deck watching the chooks and geese in the orchard while enjoying a beer in the evening.

    This studio unit was very clean, tidy and well presented. It had everything we needed to cook a meal and relax. The garage for vehicle parking was also much appreciated. Peaceful surroundings and very helpful hosts. Thanks for a great place to base our stay. AAA++

    Beautifully laid out and clean with everything you need, the studio is standalone and private. Location wise, we spent more time than we'd like to in the car, but we found having a dog limited our options (maybe more research required on our part). If you just wanted to chill out in the studio and local surrounds, it would be perfect. Recommend biking across the dry river beds locally and Paper Mulberry cafe (really good)
