An original New Zealand Homestead built in 1888.
In need of some quiet time, some you time, or some couple time 😉 Coming soon is our Stoked Cedar Spa, with cabins. Sit and relax looking at the stars. Overlooks farm land and the majestic Ruahine Ranges.
If you already have your venue organised and need a qualified, experienced and professional officiant then look no further. Vanessa has performed many weddings both here at Hewitts Homestead and in many locations around the wider Manawatu. She provides bespoke wedding services, from a simple ceremony (Registry style) to a fully personalised ceremony starting from scratch. Using rituals to enhance ceremonies is her favourite. For example using crystals, ribbons for hand fasting, or adding sand ceremonies. Having wonderful reviews from clients she is a popular choice in the Manawatu.
Wellness Sessions and Retreats:
Take time out for you. Experience mindfulness and Shinrin Yoku (forest bathing/walking), restorative yoga, cacao or tea ceremonies to help you relax and restore. Book a session for a friend or loved one and help them on their road to de-stressing. Vanessa also available for ‘listening’.
Come and spend an afternoon of creativity, relaxation and peace with Vanessa at Hewitts Homestead. A series of creative sessions ‘Just for Me’.
Phil and Vanessa Taylor.
All profits for the previous 5 years have gone back in to restoring this amazing building and regenerating the whenua.
We aim to be sustainable. Rarely use pesticides on our property and support cruelty free animal products.
Once at the end of Hewitts Road, drive slowly on to the Farm, immediately take the fork to the right, when the road forks again at the top of the hill (approx 100m) go left towards the metal gates. The homestead is behind the trees.
