TRANQUILITY IN THE MAKARORA VALLEY
Enjoyed everything about Hawkshead. Comfortable accommodation, beautiful setting, friendly knowledgeable hostess, and easy access to lovely hiking.
Quiet with wonderful views
As you drive down the country road you see sheep in a field and just a few houses. Once you arrive Bridget and her Labradors greet you warmly. She shows you your wing of the house which is equipped with a small area in which to prepare food, a comfortable large bed and a sofa and recliner. The bathroom is very modern and includes toiletries you may need.
Bridget told us about the Blue Pool walk but we actually enjoyed the other walk she told us about more. You simply cross the sheep pasture to the river and walk either up or down for as far as you like.
We were lucky that the weather was perfect for our day, sunny and still. The next morning it was very windy as we left so you never know how it will turn out.
We didn't try the cafe for either of our meals but it is only 2 km up the road. I'm sure you will be pleased with the hospitality and tranquility of Hawks head.
A wonderful couple of days in a peaceful but extremely scenic location. The accommodation was of the highest order. The unit is a perfect size for a couple wanting to maximise the opportunity to relax. But even better than the accommodation was our most obliging hostesss, Bridget’s knowledge of the area was second to none and she helped us decide on which walks would best suit us. Bridget was the perfect hostess in that you never really knew she was there but whenever we had a question to ask she was readily available. Dog lovers would thoroughly enjoy the company of her two lovely dogs.
relaxing in amazing makarora
wonderful time relaxing and exploring the makarora area. the old school house has plenty of history and its upgraded for all the comforts. full kitchen was great to settle in and do some cooking. water on gas so no worries about running out of hot water. wifi connection good. don't delay, book today
We stayed in the Schoolhouse enjoying its comfort and rural views. The location is close to wonderful day walks and Bridget provided us with the advice and details we needed to enjoy this area.
Piece of paradise.
An absolutely beautiful property and well looked after by Bridget. Thank you!!
