"This tiny hideaway scores major points for its location and style, with a fabulous alfresco bath thrown in", The Times (London).

Expansive views over Te Mata Peak and the Tuki Tuki River Valley

Extremely private and secluded for a perfect romantic get away

Near to fishing, safe sandy beaches, Hawkes Bay wineries & Havelock North restaurants.

Wake up to the sound of Tui’s singing in nearby Kowhai trees, and breathe in the fresh country air...

And enjoy some of the best views in Hawke's Bay.

The space
Tom’s Cottage is a lovingly restored 1920’s farm cottage, brimming with country charm. It is well appointed, and is warm and comfortable. The location is an intimate and private setting, perfect for a couple. A cot is available.

The kitchen is contemporary, as is the bathroom. The queen bed is incredibly comfortable… and the views looking out from your bed out to Te Mata Peak are spectacular..

In the evenings fire yourself up a warm wood-fired bath outside, and spend a romantic evening together under the stars.

So come and enjoy the charming cottage that so many of our guests return to time and time again.
