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

We have just returned from a birthday weekend at Chapelwick. What a fabulous place and such welcoming hosts. We had a lovely evening meal which was shared with other guests and Raewyn and her hubby. We spent a relaxing evening around the huge dining table swapping stories and enjoying good food prepared by Raewyn. The weather couldn't have been better... More

My Partner and I stayed here over the weekend. As it was our early Christmas we decided to go to a more quiet spot, we found it! Chapelwick is a stunning old guesthouse (that is massive!). The owners went out of their way to make our dinner romantic once they found out it was for our early Christmas together, and... More

Thank you so much Raewyn and Rod for making my weekend stay so comfortable and enjoyable. I just wanted a weekend to enjoy peace and the beauty of this land and I found a very versatile setting and welcoming smile from Raewyn, the hostess and exquisite chef, and her husband Rod who was such an entertaining host. The house is... More

We had a great time at Chapelwick, the accommodation is beautiful and the attention to detail was great. We were welcomed on arrival with delicious cider and chocolates, and Raewyn was very accommodating. Dinner, dessert and especially breakfast were delicious. We highly recommend a weekend at Chapelwick for a short, relaxing getaway, and would love to stay again ourselves.

Thanks Raewyn for your warm welcome, regaling us with the intriguing history of the Homestead and area and for our wonderful dinner in the most relaxing surroundings. The Hunter Suite is quite magical with its vistas and tranquility...something we needed after our dramatic day!! Your helpfulness and suggestions were so appreciated too. Thank you. We hope to return.:-) Carol and... More

We came across Rod & Raewyn's "Chapelwick" advertisement by chance last Easter and we are so pleased to have followed it up, staying for two nights and we will definitely be back. In fact, it is our firm intention to return with some of our close friends so impressed were we with the whole setup. Having arrived a day earlier... More
