The Schoolhouse is a wonderful place for a break. It is located in a idyllic spot on the banks of the river and is large comfortable and well equipped.
Idyllic peaceful haven
The School House is a fantastic place to chill out and relax. Set in farmland on the banks of the Tukituki river you feel like you are miles from anywhere but Havelock North with its fantastic wineries and restaurants is only a short drive away. The school house is well set up with everything you could possibly need and is very comfortable. We enjoyed it so much we ended up staying longer than we had planned to. Ange is a great host and made things very easy for us. We’d love to come back one day.
We enjoyed six nights stay in the peaceful valley where the The School House is located. The positives for us as two couples staying was the space inside and outside, the well appointed kitchen, and the peace and quiet to relax in when we returned from our adventures out each day. The following are not negatives, but information for others looking to book this accommodation. The water view can only be taken advantage of if you stand at the bottom corner of the property, as plantings have grown to restrict the river views, and the lovely old floorboards mean that when one person arises in the morning, everyone is awake. The distance from town means you need to be sure to have all your supplies with you, as it is not a quick dash to pick something up that you have forgotten, and one thing I overlooked when booking was no access to the internet, which meant with a six day stay, we used all of our phone data in a very short time.
The word 'luxury' is used to describe this property, and without a doubt it is lovely, but personally I would not put it in the 'luxury' category.
Amazing house & location!
The School House is a beautiful historic building, and it was amazing to be able to stay there. The whole family (age range 10 to 80 years) enjoyed the location, and visiting the surrounding area. The kids especially enjoyed visiting Splash Planet and the water hole.
Ange the manager was really helpful during the booking and throughout our stay.
The School House provided us a wonderful stay for our family christmas. The soaring ceilings and layout of the building were perfect for our family of six and a great location for exploring Hawkes Bay.
