These cottages are located about 5 minutes from both Hastings and Havelock North in a lovely quiet country location. Host Carol was so welcoming and once shown around the amenities, we were left to enjoy our stay, but she was always easily reachable if/when we needed something or had a question to ask. A lovely chat or two with her was a bonus!
We stayed in the one-bedroom cottage for 6 nights. It was cosy, spacious, had almost everything we needed, and was comfy. The only thing we really could have done with was a rubber scraper in the kitchen!!
The bedroom had a queen-size bed, with quality bedding. We slept very well. [The addition of a set of drawers and more coat hangers would have enhanced our longer stay, so we could properly unpack and not have to store some things in our suitcases.]
We used the cottage as our base for a week to visit, and be visited by, family. It was lovely that the grandchildren could come over and run around the spacious grass area safely whilst the adults could sit on the veranda and watch them. We were able to use the large BBQ to cook up a shared family dinner on a couple of nights, and the kitchen was used to prepare the rest of the food.
Overall, this was a brilliant place for us to choose to stay for our time in the Hawkes Bay. We usually stay in a motel but this made our time there so much more pleasurable. The cost was comparable to a motel stay.
Yes, we will book in again next year. I think we have found our base when we visit from Australia each year!
