Hidden away in a sun-drenched courtyard are three beautifully designed individual self-catering cottages, offering a charming accommodation and peaceful place to stay. Uniquely located, Clive Colonial Cottages are in the middle of the best that the Hawkes Bay can offer. Whether you want to enjoy the food, wine, cycle trails or just relax on with a book (or a glass of local wine) on your veranda, then the cottages are a perfect choice.

Clive Colonial Cottages offers three stunning self-catering cottages


The stunning cottages overlook a beautiful landscaped courtyard and are baked in the Hawkes Bay sunshine.  Each veranda is the perfect spot to relax at the end of a day seeing the awesome sights of the Hawkes Bay.
