Hawthorne House is a stunning Edwardian villa located in the heart of Hawke's Bay wine country. With four luxuriously appointed en-suite bedrooms, the villa is set in formal and informal gardens and surrounded by paddocks with views to the surrounding Hawke's Bay hills. The tranquil rural setting is conveniently located only minutes from Hastings and Havelock North.

This historical villa was built originally as a family home in the early 1900s and has since been restored and converted to provide elegant and stylish luxury accommodation and an ideal retreat for functions, small conferences and business meetings.

Hawthorne's excellent location, spacious facilities and picturesque surroundings make it an ideal choice for weddings and special occasion events in Hawke's Bay.

Breakfast at Hawthorne

Breakfast at Hawthorne is not to be missed. The first decision is where to sit; in your room, on your verandah, in the breakfast room, on the deck overlooking the garden, or even on the railway platform with the ducks for company! We use organic and locally grown produce where possible and often from our own garden. Eggs are from our own free-range chickens and the muesli, fresh daily muffins and bread and jams are all home-made.

Golf

Hawthorne is located less than five minutes from Bridge Pa (Hastings) Golf Club. This stunning golf course is consistently ranked as within the top ten clubs in New Zealand. We can arrange preferential rates, tee times and club hire at Bridge Pa for your convenience. Located right beside some of the best wineries in Hawke's Bay, why not spend the morning playing golf, enjoy a lovely lunch in the clubhouse, then explore the wineries in the afternoon?
