Gwavas Garden & Homestead

5740 State Highway 50, Tikokino, Central Hawke's Bay, Hawke's Bay

The homestead, built in 1890 by Phyllida's great grandfather ASG Carlyon, sits among an internationally renown 9-hectare woodland garden, the original planting dating from 1860. We have three Bed and Breakfast rooms; our main room the Swinhoe suite with a king bed and ensuite, the Cedar room with a queen bed and Huddy's room with two single beds. The Cedar room and Huddy's room share a bathroom. We are also a function venue and can cater for 50 seated in our hall and provide a unique marquee venue for weddings. We offer guided house and garden tours with our functions. The homestead is category 1 listed with Heritage NZ and the garden is listed as a Garden of National Significance by the NZ Gardens Trust. The best way to contact us is via email. The garden is open by arrangement only.
