Black Dog Cottage

4 guests · 2 bedrooms · 2 baths
Wake up early for a morning stroll along the Tuki Tuki River, just a short walk from this modern cottage in Havelock, New Zealand. Located next to the Black Barn Vineyard, you can bet this cottage is well stocked. Pick the perfect pairing for a backyard barbecue. Later, sit by the fire while you watch the sunset over the Te Mata ridge. Just beyond the gates, local wineries and restaurants await.
Black Dog Cottage is perfect for a secluded honeymoon, couples retreat, or small family vacation. After a morning stroll, pour yourself a cup of coffee, pick a good book from the library, and curl up by the fireplace to catch up on some reading. Before lunch, head to the local produce market, about 10-minutes from home, and pick up something fresh for an alfresco lunch. Later, let the fully-equipped kitchen inspire your inner chef. After dinner, whip up a few classic cocktails at the wet bar and head outside to enjoy the sunset.
Cast a line and see if you can catch your dinner. The Tuki Tuki River is perfect for trout fishing, as well as swimming and kayaking. During your stay, you’ll have access to the Upstream all-weather tennis court. Rather relax on the sand, head 20-minutes east to Waimarama and Oceans beach. If you’re in the mood to shop or do a little antiquing, drive 10 minutes to Havelock North.
