See and Do


If you've had enough of relaxing by the pool with a good book or whiling away the day enjoying an alfresco lunch here are some activities that may be of interest.


There are some wonderful tours available to choose from. This is a picture of Craggy Range vineyard. A short drive from Lawn Road Retreat. Other vineyards nearby are Clearview Winery, Black Barn and Elephant Hill.


The popular and completely awesome cycle trail can be accessed a five minute cycle from the retreat. You won't be disappointed - it is such a great way to see the regions beautiful countryside and visit local attractions.


The Hawke's Bay has got some amazing wineries - many right on our doorstep. You can while away the day sharing a platter or enjoying a delicious meal.


We have got some amazing beaches on our doorstep. Ocean beach (pictured) is a 15 minute drive from the Retreat and well worth a visit. Waimarama is 25 minutes and also lovely.


There are three fantastic farmers markets in the Hawke's Bay. One in Hastings, on in Havelock North and one in Napier. They showcase the wonderful local produce we have and you'll get to meet the growers too!


If you're staying with children this is a great place to while away the day. The kids will love it and they will definitely sleep well that night. There's lots of different attractions here - pack a picnic and watch the kids have instant entertainment all day.


There are some great cultural tours to do which covers our Maori heritage and history.

Clean, modern, handy to everywhere, lovely and communicative host, well resourced, excellent indoor / outdoor living. We had a wonderful weekend.
