Lawn Road Retreat has the most awesome outdoor entertaining area. This is a great space for friends and family to share a meal together and enjoy the good things in life - good wine, food and most importantly the company of others. There are screens to protect from the sun, wind and rain so this space can be enjoyed whatever the weather.


Our pool area is awesome. There's a huge deck for those wanting to chill out in the sun and enjoy the panoramic views of the countryside, a spa to keep the chill off and the play area on the other side to keep an eye on the kids.


If you feel like you need a bit of a runaround you don't need to go far. Lawn Road Retreat has a tennis court with brand new astroturf. There are lights so you can play any time you like.


It's pretty special sitting outside around a fire at night with great mates, reminiscing about days gone by. The stories get better and better as the night goes on, all the while creating new, wonderful memories...


Nothing beats sitting under the stars eating your very own home made wood fired pizza. We leave flour and yeast and a awesome pizza base recipe to make the process super easy. A must do at Lawn Road Retreat.


You really can't beat our location. While we are located rurally we are literally just a five minute drive to many of Hawke's Bays most popular wineries including Clearview Estate, Black Barn, Craggy Range, Elephant Hill and a similarly short drive to each of the main Centres - Napier, Hastings and Havelock North. It's a breeze to access the Cycle Path too - a five minute cycle!


There's a play area to keep the kids amused during their stay which means a fantastically relaxed holiday for everyone - definitely a win win! The play area includes a play house, slide and swing.


Lawn Road Retreat has a large chook area specifically for guests. It is right beside the retreat so very easy to access. Guests are welcome to throw all of their food scraps to the chooks and to collect the eggs. They really do taste sensational!

Beautiful property, perfect for our large group of 8 couples. Plenty of room for all, multiple living areas and a wonderful outdoor entertainment space with fireplace. The pool and spa were both a welcome relief after our day of the bikes. We loved the free range chickens too. Close proximity to wineries and other points of interest. Thoroughly recommend.
