Why change perfection?
A long weekend in Hawke’s Bay for us both, staying at Hawthorne House, was a surprise Christmas gift from my husband.
From the moment we arrived, our every need (and more) was catered for exceptionally well by our gregarious and generous hosts, Peter and Paul, in their tastefully and beautifully decorated heritage home with stunning artworks, in beautiful surroundings!
Peter’s knowledge and relationships with local food growers and artisans (and foods sampled for breakfast), vineyards and other places of interests was exceptional and his suggestions and advice added further to our great experience of Hawke’s Bay.
What more could you ask for? Thanks for a memorable occasion guys!
