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.

You can drive to the Farmers' Market on Sunday morning and bring back your cache of goodies to enjoy, go fly fishing in our beautiful rivers, visit one of our numerous wineries for a tasting or lunch, take a swim in one of the lovely beaches, or just walk and chill out!

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 and 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 and space in their lives. If you like biking, Central Hawkes 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 and comfortable place to stay.

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

  • The quarters are lovely and had everthing we needed for our stay

    The quarters are lovely and had everthing we needed for our stay. Perfect for quality family time with no tv, but the wifi was great for us and our 11 and 15 year old kids. We would definitely recommend the shearers quarters and will be back in the near future. Beautiful location with privacy and the view and sunrises were picture perfect.
