The fully equipped kitchen includes serviceware for 16, cookware, coffemaker, toaster, and appliances, glassware, wine glasses, interesting cookbooks if you need inspiration. Full laundry facilities, iron and board on site. Step out the...

Black Barn properties are always top-notch and Poplars 2 was no exception. Friendly welcome at Black Barn Bistro; beautifully-appointed property with fully-equipped kitchen for the home chef. Spectacular views!

We had a fabulous night at Black Barn. It was relaxing sitting on the terrace looking over the grapes with our glass of wine. When we arrive the windows and doors were open and the house was prepared beautifully. The supplies for our breakfast were outstanding and delicious. Lovely stay ,Thanks

Just spent 2 nights at Rush Cottage on the Black Barn Vineyard. Fantastic location right in the middle of Hawkes bay wine country. The cottage itself was a perfect retreat for my wife and I. It sleeps up to 4 in two seperate upstairs bedrooms. Downstairs a seperate living room and a full kitchen that opens on to your open...

We had a group of 14 people that we divided into Poplar 3 and Poplar 7. Both houses were spectacular and we loved the idea of sharing these lovely houses. We could cook and sit by the fire place and enjoy each others company. Only problem was we wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful and will do this again!

We spent 5 nights at Poplars 2 and loved it. We have stayed at many "self catering" cottages and houses throughout the world and this topped them all. The previous reviews are right on as are the photos. The property is rather remote from civilization which is its main charm so be sure to stock up on food items at...

We loved staying at the Riverside Lodge (3). It is not often that the professional photos do not do a place justice. The lodge was better than the pictures. We could easily have accomodated another family. The children loved it. It has eveything you need. Just stunning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Black Barn Vineyards in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand offers fourteen unique properties for nightly rental. Each is fully self contained and exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. Each is selected for its prime location, unique character and original style. They are all luxuriously appointed to reflect their individual character with the very best in furnishings, bedding, fabrics, kitchenware and amenities. From an eight bedroom luxury retreat to a two bedroom turn-of-the-century cottage in the heart of the vineyard, for a truly unique holiday experience, these properties are recognised as amongst the very best available in New Zealand. As we do not wholesale or advertise our properties all bookings are directly with the winery. Therefore you will not find us in travel shops or discount brochures and 80% of our guests are either repeat visitors or personal recommendations through word of mouth. So which-ever one you choose, you can be assured of a discrete, private, luxurious stay. ... more   less
