You will get a very warm welcome from your hosts Carmen and Dick. Lovely people. If you stay in the B & B the house is amazing. You will love it. The cottages have everything you could ask for but a bit more rustic than the house. We stayed for 2 nights (not enough) and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A great place to stay to disconnect and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Thank you Carmen and Dick for a peaceful stay!

In a stunning location - the view overlooking the pond from India Cottage as the sun rises is spectacular. The wood fire kept us cosy and warm, and a pack of cards kept the family entertained old school in the absence of wifi or cell coverage.

About your host, Carmen & Dick

We are Carmen & Richard - originally from the UK, we've lived in New Zealand for the past 16 years. We own a beautiful historic homestead B&B and two ornate holiday cottages all set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens.

We enjoy having visitors come and share our 'little piece of paradise' here in the Wairarapa, on the East Coast of the North Island!
