Where you’ll be

Haumoana, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

The Tuki Tuki Valley is classified as a "special character zone" and it is really quite gorgeous.

The cottage has expansive views over the plains, and can see beyond Napier and Hastings to the ranges. The views change dramatically with the time of day and the weather conditions, and are just stunning.

And less than a kilometre away is the Tuki Tuki River. A shingle river with masses of willow trees along each side, it is a lovely river with Rainbow trout in abundance.

As mentioned we are also very near world-class wineries (some of which have restaurants), Hawke's Bay's best surf breaks, as well as the main centres.

Hi there!

Herb Cottage is based on my working organic orchard. On the property I have lime trees, lemons, avocadoes, feijoas, and handfuls of other types of fruit trees. There are also cattle, and I have a couple of very friendly dogs.

I also have a large herb garden that I use for distillations I make in an Alembic Still. And from that Alembic Still's distillations we make body products, and insect control products.

I've owned the property for more than ten years and done a huge amount of planting that has by now become established.

I look forward to hosting you on the property. You will have full privacy, but if you need any help I'm always available and happy to give advice.

The cabin is a really gorgeous little spot, and has real charm. So do come and stay in this little slice of heaven.
