Reviewed 8 February 2017

WOW! Highly recommend Lawn Cottages in Clive, Hawke's Bay. The bed and linen just luxury. Everything you needed and more plus private and peaceful. Central to some of the amazing vineyards. The owners were very friendly and generous. Even given access to their incredible garden which they grow for their guests! Could not fault this piece of paradise :)

Room Tip: All cottages completely private

We booked out all 3 cottages and had a great weekend stay, the kids where treated to quad bike rides and tractor rides from Sky who is a top man. The cottages where immaculate with fresh fruit, produce, coffee and beautiful flowers!!! The gardens are massive and each cottages is privately set amongst the established gardens. A real find, I fully recommend a stay if you are in the area!

If you are looking for an escape and inspiring environment, the lawn cottages offers everything you are looking for. In addition the host Jacquie and Ski are perfect host, they do everything to make your stay as memorable as possible. The garden is amazing and we had two wonderful days. Certainly one of the best places we stayed in NZ! Don't miss it!

We rented both Flax and Magnolia cottages. We were two families with children between 6 to 9. The children love the gardens. We spent the entire Xmas day soaking in the beautiful scenic setting. Hosts Jacquie and Ski were terrific and extremely helpful. The location was central to a lot of places in Hawkes Bay.
Highly recommend!

We are a family of 4 (kids aged 7 and 5) and we had booked Flax Cottage which is the furthest from the road which is perfect for us as it offered a little bit of extra privacy.
We had one queen bed and 2 single beds for the kids.We stayed here for 3 nights.
Really nice comfortable 2 bedroom cottage with all the amenities of a hotel as well as functional kitchen and BBQ on the veranda which we used.
Lovely grounds surround the cottages where the kids could play when we were there.
Havelock North and Hastings are both a 10 minute drive away so very accessible and Napier is roughly a 15 minute drive.
Would have no hesitation in returning.
