We had our wedding at Chapelwick and it was perfect for what we wanted. Very relaxed and able to have it all the way we wanted. The breakfast the next day was amazing with nearly everything sourced from the farm. Best breakfast bar none! Wifi is a little hit and miss - what I like to call country wifi! It's... More

From the moment we entered to the moment we left was a wow experience, just not long enough. Such beautiful surroundings at times I felt like I was in a fairy tale. The hosts were so natural and relaxed, nothing was a bother. The roaring fires in winter, beautiful food and service, all made for this very memorable mid winter... More

What a find ! The perfect escape in a magestic yet homely venue where home cooking is at its finest. The hosts Sandra, Pat and Deborah can't do enough to look after you and make you feel comfortable. Lovely romantic setting for couples. A must for your bucket list.

My husband and I spent two nights here in early May. We stayed in the beautifully decorated and spacious Hunter suite on the first flour. On our first morning we enjoyed the magnificent view of the sunrise over the sea from our bed. The location of Chapelwick is stunning and peaceful. Long views over countryside to the sea set in...

We had a lovely weekend of old world charm in Chapelwick. Our room was immaculate with a beautiful sea view. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the warm and cosy evenings in front of the fire. We also enjoyed exploring the remote 'off the beaten track' area of Porangahau and Herbertsville. Definitely planning on going on back.

What a fantastic place to relax and revive. Being able to walk through the gardens and fruit trees guided by 'Monty' the dog, soaking up the fresh air was a lovely time. We enjoyed the ability to meet people from other countries over the breakfast table. Raewyn cooked a delicous dinner which we enjoyed around the dining table with other... More
