I have always wanted to visit Black Barn and it certainly stood up to expectations. The accommodation is simply stunning. The relaxed design was amazing and the grounds very relaxing. We traveled with another couple and we each had a huge king room and ensuite and the living areas/kitchen etc are huge and has everything you need. We dined at...

We stayed in Poplars 3 which is absolutely stunning. With the huge North facing window in the lounge room, there was not a single point at which the view wasn't breathtaking. The attention to detail is impressive - everything from the meal on arrival (thank you Paula) to the view from the kitchen, to the mountain bikes and towels for...

As with all Black Barn properties we have experienced over the last 10 years, River Retreat no 6 is as perfect as all the rest in comfort and decor. Fabulous property to relax in and works very well with 3 couples. Stunning views which go on forever. A very comprehensive booklet of what to do and where to go is...

We are long time Black Barn retreat users and are never disappointed. There is nothing to fault about the White House. We self cater and the facilities allow this to be achieved as though you are at home. It is a place to relax in complete comfort.

We loved this fantastic place. Ro helped us have a wonderful time. Perfect for two couples. The take out and cook yourself meals were some of the best we have ever had😃 We were well positioned to visit other wineries in the Hawks Bay region and just a short drive from Te Mata over look. We would stay here again...

My wife and I shared this spacious property with 2 other couples over a weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and used all the facilities available from the heated swimming pool, petanque strip, large modern kitchen, large dining table and living area with log fire. They have a good eye for furnishings and this property flows nicely from one part to...

Not our first stay in a Blackbarn property, and won't be our last. Clifton Retreat was even better than the pictures. As always, the finer details the made the house and weekend extra special. Everything from the beds, linen and bathroom accessories to the heated pool and fully stocked chefs kitchen.

We were two couples and stayed at Poplars 1, a spacious and sprawling home, remote from all others, located 10 minutes drive from Black Barn proper. Well equipped and luxurious, we enjoyed our 3 day mid Spring stay even though the weather was fairly inclement. The views are magnificent, and the tranquility unequaled, the only noise outside the sound of...

We had such an amazing week at Poplars 2 in the Hawke's Bay region. The accommodation is perfect with outstanding scenery and immaculate interior styling.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Black Barn Vineyards in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers fourteen unique properties for nightly rental. Each is fully self contained and exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Each is selected for its prime location, unique character and original style. They are all luxuriously appointed to reflect their individual character with the very best in furnishings, bedding, fabrics, kitchenware and amenities. From an eight bedroom luxury retreat to a two bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage in the heart of the vineyard, for a truly unique holiday experience, these properties are recognised as amongst the very best available in New Zealand.

So which-ever one you choose, you can be assured of a discrete, private, luxurious stay. ... more   less
