Chapelwick is a gem ! Far from the madding crowd, it is quiet and peaceful, surrounded by beautiful grounds, with a charming chapel and wrapped in amazing coastal scenery. You will be made to feel like a family member by Reawyn and Rod as soon as you arrive: we rolled up at 10pm, having underestimated the driving time from Wellington...

We have just spent a wonderful couple of nights at Chapelwick. No ostentation here but a real home from home. The Hunter Suite has been refurbished and is absolutely beautiful with it's own balcony and en suite. Rod and Raewyn were wonderful hosts (along with Rod's mother) and we enjoyed watching the lambs being fed, the local pheasant and collecting...

We will always look to revisiting Chapelwick when we go home to NZ. Raewyn is a wonderful hostess - warm and intuitive, she immediately feels like part of the family. She has all the history at her fingertips!The food is delicious all the way from breakfast to a platter by the pool, to dinner. The homestead is truly vintage, the...

My husband and I stay at Chapelwick at least once a year to recharge the batteries. The hosts are very welcoming and really look after you. It is a gorgeous place in the summer, so peaceful and quiet but winter is a special time too with the log fires burning and a great selection of reading material at hand as...

We (two adults and two teenagers) spent a most relaxing two days at Chapelwick just prior to Christmas and would highly recommend it for a family break. The kids had a great time in the Billiard Room and had the added bonus of tennis and feeding the lambs. A fire in the evening added to the atmosphere (something of a...

It really is a bit expensive for a family holiday but we coughed up for the night and it was wonderful. Took 2 boys who used all the grounds to play cricket. There was a Swimming pool, tennis court, huge grounds to explore, views of the sea. peace and quiet. I couldn't believe how well I slept. The old homestead...

We stayed at Chapelwick as an overnight stop on a road trip, which really didn't do it justice. Both of us longed to linger longer to wander in it's beautiful gardens, walk down to the beach or check out the chapel. Even another sleep or two in the gorgeously comfortable beds wouldn't have gone amiss! Truly impressive, if you're the...

After winning a radio promotion for the worst wedding ever, this surely made up for that. Well worth the drive to enjoy peace and quiet, and just relax. Hosts made it really a relaxed place, lovely walks amongst the fruit trees, chat with the goat, so loved the dog, and the food was yummy, right down to hot scones included...

Raewyn and Rod were the perfect hosts for our weekend away from it all at this charming old and immaculately maintained, homestead. The warm, friendly atmosphere allowed us to quickly get to know and very comfortably share Chapelwick with our hosts and three other couples over welcoming breakfasts and as we enjoyed a beautiful dinner with a few wines and...

I wouldn’t stay at a B&B (unless coersed by my wife), let alone write about one. However, my experience at Chapelwick inspired me to do just that. I am a retired contractor from California and, with my wife, have stayed in more than a few B&Bs, all of which were very nice. That is, if you’re an uppity stuff shirt...
