We also offer "Glamping in the Vines" - four beautiful lotus belle tents set within our vineyard. Relax awith a wine or coffee, and enjoy the surrounding gardens with 100-year old trees, views of the Tara Hills and neighbouring vineyards and orchards. You’re welcome to fire up the BBQ in true Kiwi style, or get competitive with some lawn or board games. Whatever is your ideal way of kicking back and enjoying the beautiful Hawke’s Bay weather, rest assured you can enjoy it here at Meadowood.

We loved our Glamping experience at Hawke's Bay over Easter. Emma & Colin were excellent hosts, and we met some lovely fellow travelers around the fire. The bell tents are delightful and well set-up, very cosy and glam. The view over the vineyard is beautiful, especially at dawn
