Had three nights at this wonderful cottage set in an amazing garden.
These cottages are totally private, have every amenity you would need, and are tastefully decorated. Facilities like supermarkets, restaurants, vineyards and beaches are all so close.
Great set up for either one or two couples in each cottage.

Room Tip: Don't go anywhere else!!

Forget staying in Napier, Hastings or Havelock North. When in the Hawkes Bay, stay in the centre and be only a few kilometres from all the above towns. We loved our fully set up, totally private cottage. The magnificent gardens were absolutely amazing to look out on, and the feeling of being in the country, and yet only being minutes from all the towns was perfect.Clive is central to everything, including Ocean Beach, a magnificent swimming/walking beach.
We love privacy, and after three nights, we really felt like our cosy cottage was our home away from home. The owner has thought of everything and the cottages have every conceivable thing you might need. It was easy to cook if you felt like it (supermarket 10 minutes away),or eat out up in Clive Village.

Room Tip: All three cottages are perfectly situated, however ours was fully decked out for anyone with physical disabilities.

We started off our New Zealand holiday at Lawn Cottages and we could not have been happier with our choice. The Hydrangea cottage was perfect with two nice sized bed rooms divided by a very comfortable lounge and more than adequate kitchen. It was easy to tell that a cook had stocked the kitchen with high quality utensils and wares.

Shona is a lovely host and was happy to welcome our 5 year old son into the expansive and well-tended gardens on the property. The outdoor dining area was a perfect place to end our days with a bottle of local wine along with bread and cheese from Bellatino’s just down the road in Havelock North.

I could have stayed forever!

We stayed in Hydrangea Lawn Cottages for 3 nights and it was a great start to our 3 week long holiday. The cottage was very homely with lovely lawn at the back for our 10 mth old son to explore. Shona was extremely warm and hospitable. She went the extra mile and got our son a high chair, which we overlooked to request before the trip. The cottage is perfect for moms like me as I'm still nursing and needed to sterilize bottles etc. The fully equipped kitchen has all the essentials and made it a fuss free holiday. We would love to come by again.

My husband and i have just experienced the most outstanding accommodation ever! We stayed 2 nights in the Magnolia cottage at Lawn Cottages and it was just perfect in every way. The views were divine of the spectacular garden and oh so private too. Shona bent over backwards to make sure every little extra imaginable was catered for including fresh bread, eggs, fruit bowl, chocolates and the prettiest vase of roses by our bed. She also made sure the heater and lights were on so we walked to blissful cosiness with nice soft music in the background. You simply do not get this in a motel/hotel. Thank you so much Shona for making our stay so wonderful and a life long memory - and hello to the lovely Truffle - such a darling labrador! Alix and Craig, Masterton.
