Capture the essence of yesteryear when you stay at Tairoa Cottage. This old house was removed from its original site in the middle of Hawera in 2002, to its present site in the extensive grounds of Tairoa Lodge and faithfully renovated to provide boutique self-contained accommodation.
Tairoa Cottage is very quiet and private set amongst established grounds and with an extensive lawn sweeping to the front of the house. A wrap-around verandah facing North and East provides shelter for alfresco dining. The original matai floors and rimu doors provide warmth to the interior. ‘Understated classical elegance’ describes the all-new furnishings and interior design.
