Enjoy the wide range of amenities at Lawn Road Retreat


Lawn Road Retreat has a wide range of amenities for all ages which makes it the perfect holiday home for all. There’s a play house along with playground for the very young; a table tennis table, tennis court and volleyball area for those after a good runaround and a pool table, petanque court along with a range of lawn games for those after something a bit more relaxing. The large lawn is perfect for cricket and soccer and of course there’s the salt water swimming pool and hot tub which seats fourteen to sixteen. You really are spoilt for choice at Lawn Road Retreat!


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. The play area is on the other side so you can relax in the sun while keeping 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 and a separate volleyball area. There are lights on the tennis court so you can play any time you like.


Brand new in April 2022, we love that this fourteen to sixteen seater hot tub can fit most if not all of our guests. What better way to finish the day having a soak in a handcrafted cedar hot tub with special friends and family, enjoying the picturesque surrounds.


We love our outdoor table tennis table. It’s a great way to have a bit of a run around without going too far. Just another feature at Lawn Road Retreat that we think is pretty awesome.


We are in love with our new pool table! It’s such a lovely way to spend quality time with friends and family. Great too to have some inside time if you caught a few too many rays of the wonderful Hawke’s Bay sun.


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 an awesome pizza base recipe to make the process super easy. A must do at Lawn Road Retreat.


Entertaining at Lawn Road Retreat is a breeze with this built in Weber BBQ. The large cupboard houses an outdoor fridge. This is also a WilliamsWarn Kegerator fridge. If you have WilliamsWarn BrewKeg at home you are welcome to bring your keg to Lawn Road Retreat and enjoy it during your stay.


There are lots of different lawn games to choose from. These include Cornhole (pictured), croquet, kubb, and cricket. There’s also jenga, and a range of board games like scrabble and chess.


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!


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!
