Te Mata House
Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
A grand country home set amongst the Hawke's Bay vineyards.
The 170 year old Te Mata House is one of Hawke’s Bay’s grandest country homes, triumphantly sitting amongst exquisitely manicured gardens with modern touches such as a swimming pool, tennis court and a wonderful speakeasy style whiskey room. A short distance from Havelock North, Te Mata House is connected to cycle trails linking it with the region’s best vineyards, as well as the Art Deco city of Napier.
Stay in the Cottage, a purpose-built, architecturally designed guesthouse with two ensuite bedrooms. Amenities include a kitchen, gas fireplace and private courtyard with hot tub. Soaring high-pitched ceilings, beautiful fixtures, modern interiors and a carefully curated selection of local art make this a special retreat. The modern Cottage has two en suite bedrooms with a kitchen, gas fireplace and a private courtyard with hot tub. The Old Stables is a fantastic loft style apartment for one couple, especially great for romantic stays.
Te Mata House is just minutes from dozens of vineyards, including two of our favourites, Black Barn and Craggy Range.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
