"This tiny hideaway scores major points for its location and style, with a fabulous alfresco bath thrown in", The Times (London).

Tom’s Cottages an exclusive private hideaway nestled between the breathtaking scenery of the Tuki Tuki valley and the majestic ruggedness of Te Mata Peak.

Wake up to the sound of Tui’s singing in nearby Kowhai trees, and breathe in the fresh country air.

And enjoy some of the best views in Hawke’s Bay…

Tom’s Cottage is a lovingly restored 1920’s farm cottage, brimming with country charm. It is well appointed, and is warm and comfortable. The location is an intimate and private setting, perfect for a couple. A cot is available.

The kitchen is contemporary, as is the bathroom. The queen bed is incredibly comfortable… and the views looking out from your bed out to Te Mata Peak are spectacular..

In the evenings fire yourself up a warm wood-fired bath outside, and spend a romantic evening together under the stars.

All our guests enjoy a complimentary country inspired breakfast supply of free-range eggs, fresh bread, home-made conserves, milk, cereal, coffee, tea and fresh seasonal fruits…

We deliver this on the first day, but after that you’re left completely on your own.

Being at the cottage totally immerses you in nature, but for day excursions you have adventure and culture on your doorstep... Near the cottage you’ll have…

World-class wineries Craggy Range, Elephant Hill, Clearview only a brief drive away.

Trout fishing, picnics and adventures for teenagers at the Tuki Tuki river, at a walking distance.

Havelock North’s outstanding restaurants are only ten minutes drive. Napier and it’s Art Deco are twenty five minutes.

And the gorgeous, huge sandy beaches Ocean Beach & Waimarama are 15 and 20 minutes drive away respectively. The beaches are safe to swim in, and have surf breaks.

So come and enjoy the charming cottage that so many of our guests return to time and time again.

  • Great place to stay

    Great place to stay. Loved the location, wonderful outlook of the garden and farmland. Cottage was full of character and very well equipped. To top it off home made bread, free range eggs and bacon. Highly recommend.

    The rustic and beautifuly furnished little cottage is located in a tranquil setting and perfect for a weekend escape. The hosts are warm and accommodating and provide the most excellent home made jams, warm bread, bacon and fresh eggs for breakfast. Allowing us to bring our little dog was the icing on the cake.
