Luxury Lodge Getaway

About this Holiday House

Welcome to our historic luxury lodge, nestled in the heart of wine country in the beautiful Hawke's Bay. Here you will enjoy a peaceful luxurious retreat, surrounded by trees, garden and expansive lawns. Incredible polished wooden interior, large open indoor fires and exquisite decor and furnishings make this large family home a spectacular and memorable experience for groups of family, friends and business travellers alike. Superb location, near to wineries, beaches and beautiful scenery! Over 120 years old, this beautiful property was created decades ago with quality, comfort, luxury and space in mind. The polished wood interior is truly something special and each room has been lovingly renovated and maintained over the years with no expense spared. Decadent chandeliers shimmer light while open fireplaces spread warmth throughout. The lodge interior has been well maintained and tastefully renovated, with lots of warm, welcoming spaces. The homestead boasts seven beautiful bedrooms, all wonderfully spacious and full of natural light. Each luxuriously appointed bedroom offers privacy and enticingly comfortable beds, draped in crisp 1000 thread count cotton sheets. We have multiple cots and bassinets available for young children. The kitchen is spacious, well equipped and a pleasure to cook in with a double oven, huge gas cooktops, two fridges, dishwasher and plenty of basics in the cupboards. There are plenty of plates, cups and cutlery along with a wide range of platters, bowls and serving dishes. You can enjoy lovely long outdoor meals on the variety of tables and chairs we have set up as well as relaxing with a coffee on the comfy couches on the deck. Wind down and relax on the decks overlooking lawns and orchards, or settle in with a wine in front of our open indoor fireplaces. Enjoy the expansive grounds and let the kids run around and burn endless energy on the lovely soft lawns and exciting secret pathways through gardens and bush. Children will play happily for hours in the lovely big sandpit, laugh on the swing set and love exploring our range of toys. Plan to enjoy soaking up some rays in peace and privacy, or jump into the pool for a quick dip to cool off. Or if your feeling lazy be decadent and snuggle into the soft leather couches in front of the large flatscreen tv for some downtime. The lodge is located off the road, down a long special and shaded driveway. Secure with paddocks and plenty of parking on site, this spacious and incredibly well equipped home and grounds provide a perfect getaway for large families, groups or business teams. Set amongst beautiful orchards and gardens this is a stunning boutique, luxury accommodation option in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Please note, the only personal belongings visible in the homestead are a few special photos. Guests will have access to parking onsite, all the gardens, swimming pool, decks and lawns. Guests will also enjoy access to luxurious living spaces with open indoor fireplaces. You will enjoy using the brilliant and well stocked kitchen and there is a barbeque outside on the deck for guest use. Guests will be warmly welcomed and provided with information about their stay and the area. As a host I prefer to leave our guests in peace to enjoy their stay but I can be contacted and available if required. You may see either myself or the property care-taker (who also lives on-site) maintaining the swimming pool, gardens and grounds during your stay, but we do try to avoid doing these things as much as possible while you are at home and give you as much peace and privacy as we can.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

The lodge is located in the semi-rural orcharding community of Twyford, in Hastings Hawke's Bay. Only a short 5 minutes drive into Hastings city, 10 minutes to Havelock North and only 15- 20 minutes on the expressway to Napier. Perfectly located far enough from the busyness and noise of town but close enough that everything is within a quick easy drive. We are nestled in the heart of the 'fruit bowl' of New Zealand with endless orchards, vineyards and award-winning wineries on hand. Guests will love the fresh fruit and vege stalls and will enjoy experiencing the variety of wine tastings at our incredible Hawke's Bay wineries. The local farmers market is a must-do, to enjoy a coffee, brekky and music whilst wandering the fresh produce, wine, honey and bakery stalls on a Sunday morning. From wine and food events to cultural experiences and sporting fun, there is always something exciting happening in beautiful Hawke's Bay.
