Hawkhill Cottage

Hawkhill Cottage

Napier

Hawkhill Cottage is located in a semi-rural area just 15 minutes from Central Napier.

The one-room (with bathroom) cottage has a distinctly Mediterranean vibe... Terracotta tiles, plaster walls, nestled amongst lavender, rosemary, olives and tall cypress trees - it's like you've stepped into a little corner of Tuscany in the Hawke's Bay.

With expansive views, the cottage looks East over the Ahuriri Lagoon, out towards Napier and the Pacific Ocean beyond. You can see from Cape Kidnappers through to Bluff Hill, Mahia and the Kaweka Ranges. The sunrise is sensational - and the sunset peaceful to sit and watch with a glass of wine in hand. The twinkling lights of Napier are spectacular at night.

Bird watchers will love the wetland birds on the lagoon, as well as the plentiful hawks, pheasants, quails, yellowhead, tuis, and woodpigeon who regularly visit the cottage and gardens.

The surrounding garden is lush and fruitful - and guests are welcome to help themselves to the citrus fruit, figs, feijoas, avocados, macadamia and walnuts when in season.

We rarely find a spot that is so close to a vibrant town, yet so tranquil. Enjoy the wineries, arts and beaches of Napier during the day - and retreat to your own little peaceful paradise at the end of it all. Perfect.

    Eating and Drinking

    Hawkhill Cottage has all the facilities you need to self-cater. Just bring your own food, and prepare meals in the kitchenette. There is a double electric element and barbeque for cooking and you'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need. 

    If you want a break from cooking, both Misson Estate and Churchroad wineries are only 5-minutes away - or head to Napier (just 15-minutes drive away) for a selection of fantastic cafes and restaurants. 

    If you need to pop out for supplies, you'll find a supermarket in Napier, about a 15-minute drive away.

    Things to do

    Hawkhill Cottage is a peaceful escape - and the perfect place to base yourself for exploring the Hawke's Bay region.

    With everything from Art Deco Tours to wineries, the Hawke's Bay Farmers Market to pottery and art studios - and floristry and cooking classes - there really is something for everyone.

    If you're keen to get active, bring your bikes! The Hawke's Bay cycle trail has a starting point 5 minutes away from Hawkhill Cottage.

    Those that wish to just relax and enjoy the peaceful vibe of the cottage will love watching the birdlife found on the lagoon and a range of natives that love to visit the surrounding gardens.

    There are plenty of board games and even 'cornholl' (a game similar to petanque) to keep you entertained.
