This Cottage has everything you need and more. Nice and private and a great place to recharge your batteries. Beautiful outlook and in a handy location. If you love the outdoors there is a lovely run/bike trail that runs all the way to Napier. If a Beatrice Potter experience is what you're after, this is your place!

The photos on the website do not do Clifton retreat justice. The house is much larger than I anticipated and could easily accommodate two families travelling together. Master bedroom with large en suite including a separate bath is upstairs on the main floor allowing views over the sea whilst 2 further quest suites down stairs have their own equally nice...

Stayed at Black Barn itself. Has all the understated elegant charm of the other Black Barn places. Larger than expected. Have previously stayed a number of times at their River Cottages, which are also excellent. Lunched at nearby Craggy Range then on a cool afternoon came back with fire ready to light and full kitchen including enough of their breakfast...

Magical setting in the heart of the Hawkes Bay- NZ We stayed at Rush's for 3 nights. Easy to find, as it's on the way to the iconic Hawkes Bay wineries. On arrival, we were greeted by a welcoming staff providing helpful guidance about restaurants. The Cottage itself was immaculate, facilities such as bedding and toiletries to a standard expected...

Hi Lallit, I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your time in Hawkes Bay and your stay with us, apart from the internet! We do offer unlimited internet across all our retreats so this looks like it was a very poorly timed problem with our service provider which we are looking into. I know not having access to the internet...

Poplars 7 was a wonderful retreat in which to house our overseas visitors; a splendid view from each window; great foods provided by your kitchen, Warmth, space, privacy, luxury. Something very special indeed.

We stayed at Rush Cottage - one of the Black Barn Vineyard retreats. What a beautiful setting. Rush Cottage itself is quaint, quirky and delightful. Lovely linen, plenty of towels and the breakfast ingredients more than we needed. The fire was an added bonus when the sun went down and made the lounge very cosy. Would definitely go again.

The black barn retreats achieve new heights with their attention to comfort, detail, and convenience. And being surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery, and best wine you can find, this is a winning combo for an unforgettable holiday. Don't hesitate!

I was more than impressed with the Black Dog cottage at Black Barn retreats. Secluded in the hills with only one neighbor but very private. The owner personally answered our call for firewood and welcomed us along with the original Black Dog, Solly! The kitchen was very well appointed and they even stocked the kitchen with our food requests (at...

We had an amazing visit for two nights and wanted to stay longer. The cottage instantly feels like home, it's warm and inviting with everything you would want supplied and plenty of things to do nearby.

This place is absolutely breathtaking! We stayed at poplar 3 which is situated on top of a hill. The house is beautiful, views are stunning. The kitchen actually the whole house is well equipped. You can't go wrong with staying here!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Black Barn Vineyards in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers fourteen unique properties for nightly rental. Each is fully self contained and exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Each is selected for its prime location, unique character and original style. They are all luxuriously appointed to reflect their individual character with the very best in furnishings, bedding, fabrics, kitchenware and amenities. From an eight bedroom luxury retreat to a two bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage in the heart of the vineyard, for a truly unique holiday experience, these properties are recognised as amongst the very best available in New Zealand.

So which-ever one you choose, you can be assured of a discrete, private, luxurious stay. ... more   less
