Welcome to Clive Colonial Cottages

Hidden away in a sun-drenched courtyard are three beautifully designed individual self-catering cottages, offering a charming accommodation and peaceful place to stay. Our fourth cottage, available until the end of May 2020, is perfect for families. 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 four stunning self-catering cottages


The three onsite cottages overlook a beautiful landscaped courtyard. Our separate 1927 Villa is located across the road from the other cottages and has been lovingly restored to her former glory.  All cottages get baked in the Hawkes Bay sunshine and each veranda is the perfect spot to relax at the end of a day seeing the awesome sights of the Hawkes Bay.

If you are looking for self-catering accommodation in a quiet, semi-rural location that is just 10 minutes from Napier, Hastings and Havelock North, then come and stay with us, the cottages will be perfect for you.
