Set in peaceful, beautiful countryside on our farm in Central Hawke's Bay, The Shearers Quarters offers the ideal retreat for a family or a couple wishing to get away from it all. Situated above a lake with pretty rural views, we have everything that you need, with just about all of the comforts of home.

Please note: We now have WiFi, so you can work and holiday at the same time if you have to!

Only 10 minutes drive from the beach & Te Angiangi Marine Reserve, it is ideal for fishing enthusiasts, artists, writers, mountain bikers, road bikers (our road is sealed), hikers or those just wishing to have some peace & space in their lives. If you like biking, Central Hawke's Bay is full of great scenic rides with mountain bike and limestone trails around Waipukurau along the picturesque river.

Porangahau is a scenic coastal drive of about 30kms, where you can play golf for $10 a round (9 Holes) against the backdrop of a beautiful beach. Or dine at the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel or drive to see the longest place name - Taumata whakatangi hangakoauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu - just the other side of Porangahau.

We are located 22kms from Waipukurau and approx 70kms from Hastings The bach has a separate toilet, bath and shower. There is a microwave, full oven and barbecue. We live on the farm, so are nearby for phone use or anything you may have forgotten, yet The Shearers Quarters is completely private for you.

An all-round cosy & comfortable place to stay.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Shearer's Quarters.

  • Very nice and quiet, beautifully located with views over the dam

    Very nice and quiet, beautifully located with views over the dam. The "Old" Shearers Quarters are well restored and very comfortable and cosy to stay. Everything you need is there!

  • So quiet and peaceful in a beautiful spot, with everything we needed

    So quiet and peaceful in a beautiful spot, with everything we needed. The cottage was clean and very comfortably furnished and despite there being no TV, wifi, etc my three children aged between 5 and 12 had a wonderful time with lots of things to do and places to explore. They were most certainly disappointed when we had to leave at the end of our 5 day stay. We would highly recommend.

  • Everything you need is there

    Everything you need is there. The location is spectacular. It's a great distance from Blackhead beach. Might pay to take your own entertainment eg. CD's, boardgames etc. in case it rains. But happy we could bring some rain with us from the Naki! :)
