Elegant new winery accommodation: The Farmhouse

Elegant new winery accommodation in the Hawke’s Bay: The Farmhouse at Mission Estate.

Hawke’s Bay is renowned for having many of the finest wineries in the country, and some of the most elegant boutique accommodation.

Now visitors to the region can enjoy the best of both worlds, with the opening of The Farmhouse at Mission Estate.

This welcoming three--bedroom house is nestled amongst the vines on the historic grounds of Mission Estate, New Zealand’s oldest winery.

Impeccably refurbished in French country style, it features an open plan chef’s kitchen and living room, three en suite double bedrooms, generous al fresco dining areas and a private spa pool.

Every room is superbly appointed, with flat screen TVs, heat pumps, wifi and modern furnishings.

A gas fireplace provides a cosy atmosphere on crisp Hawke’s Bay winter evenings.

The Farmhouse is a 5 minute stroll to the fine dining Mission Restaurant for lunch or dinner, and is only 10 minutes’ drive to Napier and the airport.

It’s ideal for weekend escapes to Hawke’s Bay, business visits and wedding accommodation.

Prices range from $400 to $550 per night and include complimentary Mission Fête bubbles on arrival.
