  • Hi, I would like to book your remaining 3 rooms but I wanted to check if your house rules prohibited individuals from being back at your homestead late (after midnight). We have a wedding to attend at Tikokino and although we plan to check in at 15:00, we may need to get back at midnight. Would that be an issue? Look forward to your response. Regards, Stephanie Meyer

    Hi Stephanie, What date are you enquiring about? If it is this weekend we have two rooms available as one is already booked. We are ok with guests returning late as if you have checked in earlier you will have a key to access the main entrance. Thanks, David

John and Giovanni

Ashcott Homestead is a Heritage NZ listed building which started life in the 1850's, built by settlers from Ashcott in Somerset, UK. This unique homestead has been extensively renovated whilst retaining the character features from the Victorian era. We welcome visitors to share the history and ambience of our home where you can relax in this peaceful Central Hawkes Bay location. You can stroll around our 10 acres, watch the animals, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. We have three modern BnB rooms and one family room, which is only available when purchased with a main bedroom. This family room is for family members and shares your private bathroom.

We are the new owners of Ashcott Homestead. We are animal lovers so we are a dog-friendly BnB upon request. We have two dogs called Sasha and Sebastion, who will loudly announce your arrival but are very friendly. John is relieving teacher in Primary Schools; Giovanni was a retail manager and now stays home to run the homestead, and look after our boys. We come from the sunny north to the beautiful Hawkes Bay to further our love of meeting people, sharing our home and living in the country. We have always had people living with us, run a BnB and find hosting people in our home is satisfying and rewarding. We look forward to meting you.

Central Hawkes Bay is a beautiful region with rolling hills, world renowned trout fishing and hiking/tramping in the Ruahine Ranges. There are antique shops, several golf courses, highly regarded wineries and historic homesteads to explore. Cycling is a popular activity and of course spending time at cafes and farmers markets is always an option. The art deco city of Napier is only 50 minutes drive, whilst Havelock North and Hastings are only 45 minutes. Heading south, Wellington is 3 hours drive via the Saddle Road or Palmerston North=
