1/10/16 Hawks Bay New Zealand Excellent cottages. We had The Shippen (Lodge) and The Stable (Manor House). Everything we needed- good base for exploring. Recommend Who's have Thought Itfor a little bit of up market - The Bull's Head good too but a bit more rustic. If you want to go to Lands Endfight the impulse and go to St Just and Cape Cornwall instead . Overal great time and it was nice to stretch out in full in a bed.
