Perfect accomodation for our group from the South Islands first trip to Havelock North, easy drive into the town and local wineries. House was organised and had everything we needed. Views were stunning and the roads directly around were lovely for a morning walk or run.

A beautiful, peaceful little haven, just minutes down the road from Havlock central. This is our second time here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for peace and quiet in a semi-rural environment. Very well appointed cottages with all the home comforts, would be equally good in summer or winter as an escape venue. We use it as...

Thanks Graeme, Lovely to have you back. We have lots of happy repeat guests and 4 choices of accommodation to suit 2 -8 guests or the entire property sleeps 20. You are right winter is great also as 3 cottages have a wood burner and the main house a gas fire. All snug and 3 double glazed.

We recently stayed at Endsleigh House for two nights. The accommodation was superior and views from the property were fabulous. The outdoor areas are lovely and reminiscent of a Tuscan villa. The living areas are bright and modern but the bedrooms are elegant and restful. Our family enjoyed our time together and also the space the property provided.
