  • Lovely setting, had everything we needed

    Lovely setting, had everything we needed. Delicious home made jam. Appreciated the use of the washing machine to wash all the cricket gear each night. Just around the corner from Riverbend Camp which was handy.

    Berry Farm Retreat was scrupulously clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is set in a beautiful and peaceful environment and was a wonderful home from home for our extended stay. Well located with Hastings, Havelock North and Napier all within close range.
