Where you’ll be

Hastings, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

The cottage is set on working farm so there can sometimes be livestock in the surrounding paddocks and from time to time there may be noise during the day from farm vehicles.

We are in a high wind zone so on some days you may just want to enjoy the view from inside the cottage with the aircon on.
