Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We have taken on board your comments about the extra bed. This is not something we normally do and only provide it in response to a guest request where they would like 5 people in a cottage rather than the 4 it is set up for. I am always clear...

We stayed in one of the cottages at the end of December and our family stayed in the cottage next door. The location of the cottages is great - you are close to Havelock North and Napier.

We enjoyed having you stay with us and appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Our grounds often pose a dilemma for our guests as normally they are not expecting an environment that they would love to spend more time in and try to find a way to alter their plans to include some relaxing time here.

We stayed at the larger Hydrangea cottage and our in laws stayed at Magnolia (which had nice new carpet). We thought the cottages were very comfy and we had everything we needed -...

We stayed at Lawn Cottages for five nights over Christmas. The cottage (Hydrangea) was spacious with two large bedrooms, kitchen facilities and everything we needed. The cottage is in the country surrounded by beautiful well established gardens so there is total privacy from the other cottages. Havelock North, Napier and Hastings are within a 10 minute drive and there are...

Thank you for your kind review. Many guests are surprised to find how handy we are to the delights of Hawkes Bay. You are right, we get the best of both worlds - a rural feel but not far from anywhere. I was impressed with your cycling adventures We do look forward to your return here. Jacquie and Ski

Thank you for your review. We do appreciate people making the effort to do this.
