Black Barn Retreat is located right in the heart of the Vineyard. Surrounded by grapes, almond trees, olive trees and citrus, it looks out from its slight rise above the vines to a vista that stretches right across the beautiful province of Hawke's Bay. It looks from the snowcapped mountains in the west to the ocean and river valleys in the east. Black Barn Retreat is just 30 minutes from Napier Airport, 10 minutes from the city of Hastings and just 5 minutes from the quaint and historic village of Havelock North. It is set right in the heart of New Zealand's premier wine region and many of New Zealand's most famous wine names are literally on your doorstep. Beautiful beaches, golf courses, trout fishing rivers and shopping are all just minutes away.


Many people who stay at Black Barn Retreat simply don't want to leave the property. You are surrounded by several acres of vines and a working vineyard. You are welcome to treat the vineyard as 'your own' while you are staying with us and everything from artichokes to fresh figs to almonds to citrus can be gathered from the property depending on the time of year you are with us. 

When you are with us, the Cellar Door is just a five-minute walk and the team can advise you on the location of the best beaches, golf courses, swimming pools and attractions. We can also organise winery tours, guided fishing trips to some of New Zealand's best trout fishing rivers and we can also organise to have fully catered meals prepared and presented at your retreat if you wish. A full compendium to local restaurants and attractions will be in the retreat when you arrive, we also offer a wide range of activities that we are more than happy to arrange on your behalf. You can also view our compendium below.

"Slice of Heaven"

As I write, Dave Dobbyn sings "It's a slice of heaven" from your BB playlist. And that's all I need to say: quite simply Black Barn and this gorgeous building is a slice of heaven. We have had a wonderful few days, biking, eating, reading and drinking far too much wine. Really enjoyed our dinner last night with you guys - delicious and clean simple flavours. Hoping to return to this slice of heaven for longer next time! Huge thanks.
