Accommodation roomy, light and everything provided. Area could not be beaten for scenery,tranquility, rest, quietness apart from the sheep (I didn't know sheep made so much noise!) and adventure with the walks catering for every age and fitness. We have already inquired about coming back. Thank you for everything.

So far our stay at Haurata has been the highlight of our two month travels through NZ. Our family of four booked the Backpackers Cottage and enjoyed a long, stunning walk in the hills which we are still talking about days later. The cottage is rustic to be certain but in a wonderful way. The large farmhouse table creates a perfect centerpiece to the cabin. If rustic isn't your cup of tea, the main house looked lovely. The surrounding landscape may be the prettiest we have ever seen. Jane and Warwick could not have been more delightful and welcoming hosts. We just wish we could have stayed longer!

The lucky members and guests of the Gisborne Camera Club who got to spend the weekend at Haurata were very impressed with the accommodation provided and the stunning location. Having the different levels of accomodation with the house and the backpackers and twin share and double bedrooms was good for the variety of club members and made the weekend affordable for more members. Having a fully equiped kitchen and a pantry and fridge already stocked with some basics and fresh fruit, made it easy to just arrive at the house and settle in. With the Fire going in the evenings the house was soon incredibly cosy and nice to relax in after a day out walking, and the hot tub provided extra comfort for those who had been on the longest walks.

The variety of walks, from short walks around the amazing garden and bushwalks, to longer walks over stunning hill country and down to the river with a series of waterfalls, provided for the varying fitness levels and photographic interests of club members. Everyone was able to find what suited them and get some amazing images and memories. The walks were very well laid out with markers all the way along and maps provided so you always felt secure and knew you would not get lost.

Thanks very much to the very generous hosts Jane and Warwick for an amazing weekend, from the Gisborne Camera Club
