Picturesque Place on Pirau

This purpose-built cottage is situated in a picturesque Hawke's Bay rural setting, featuring views of the rolling hills, Kaweka ranges and some of the
local birdlife such as pukeko, hawks and kingfishers. Sit back and soak in the views or get out and enjoy what the Bay has to offer.

PLEASE NOTE: we are SEMI-RURAL so have a look at the map to get an idea of where we are located in regards to driving times. We do not have supermarkets handy, there is a 7 minute drive to get to the local dairy.

The space
Our cottage is 45 square metres with an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge and 2 sliding doors opening out to a large deck you will have no trouble relaxing and taking in the extensive views. There is a fully equipped kitchen which includes oven, induction cook top, fridge/freezer, dish drawer and microwave. Tea and coffee for your first night is supplied.

Other things to note
The cottage is set on working farm so there can sometimes be livestock in the surrounding paddocks and from time to time there may be noise during the day from farm vehicles.
We are in a high wind zone so on some days you may just want to enjoy the view from inside the cottage with the aircon on.

A 7 minute drive up the road takes you to the Hawkes Bay cycle and walking trail with access to a safe river for swimming. Just over the river you will find The Puketapu Pub, Restaurant & Cafe which serves delicious meals.
The cottage has a perfect balance, you get a country setting but then it’s only a 12 minute drive to Taradale or a 15 minute drive to Stortford Lodge.
