Tuki Tuki Valley

Hawkes Bay

Tuki Tuki Valley Glamping is located on a small boutique vineyard, within a short walk of the Tukituki river and just 15 minutes drive from Havelock North in the spectacular Hawke's Bay region.

A stay at Tuki Tuki Valley gives you the best of both worlds... You'll feel immersed in the peace of the countryside, while just being a few minutes from some of the Hawkes Bay's best vineyards, cafes and of course the charming township of Havelock North itself. 

The campsite is ideal for a couple or family looking for a break in the country. And, there's no need to leave your furry family member at home - dogs are welcome to come glamping at Tuki Tuki Valley too.

The site consists of one large, safari style luxury tent overlooking a small dam. The camp kitchen and bathroom are housed in a rustic shed, with a covered outdoor eating area. An open-air fire pit with comfortable seating, creates a great space to relax after a busy day exploring the region.

  • Eating and Drinking

    Tuki Tuki Valley is self-catering. Just bring your own food and cook meals using the BBQ and facilities provided in your private camp kitchen. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need.

    The nearest shop selling food and alcohol is the Four Square on Te Mata Road - a 12 minute drive from the campsite. There is an abundance of farm gate fresh fruit and vegetables around the region, and you'll find a New World Supermarket in Havelock North, 15 minutes drive away.

    Craggy Range Winery is your 'local' whilst staying a Tuki Tuki Valley - with great food and wine on offer. And it's definitely worth checking out the 'Friendly Friday Nights' at Clearview Estate Winery (both are only 10 minutes drive away).

    Grab your daily flat white from Red Bridge Coffee, they regularly have visiting food trucks at the weekend too. It’s a great local hangout.

      There are also plenty of options in the township of Havelock North (15 minutes away) if you feel like a break from cooking!

    • Things To Do

      Campers can park right up at the campsite, so it's easy to pop out and explore the region.

      Head to the coast through the Tuki Tuki Valley for fabulous views from the river valley out to the ocean. Build sandcastles, surf, swim or enjoy long peaceful walks at Ocean Beach, a 15 minute drive away or Waimarama Beach - a 20 minute drive. Explore the lesser known but beautiful Kairakau beach, 30 minutes away.

      If you're on foot, the 'Horseshoe Bend' swimming hole in the Tukituki River is a 15 minute walk from the campsite - perfect for a refreshing dip. The Tukituki river is also well known as a premium trout fishing destination - so if you're a keen fisherman, bring your rod!

      Those that want pampering can unwind with a spa treatment at White Space Spa Retreat, or if you're keen for an experience, try a cultural tour with Waimarama Maori Tours. Foodies can indulge in a cooking class at Maison de Cuisine.

      Bring your bikes! The Hawke's Bay has some fantastic cycle trails and wine tours to enjoy.

      Get out and about during the day, then head back to the campsite to completely relax. Wile away the hours with some outdoor games - Giant Jenga, horseshoe tossing or petanque are all provided at the campsite. Wander through the vineyard and picnic among the vines. Or just soak up the sunsets, the countryside and the campfire marshmallows - and enjoy a holiday to remember.

    • Your Hosts

      When Nicola and Peter first set eyes on the property in Hawke's Bay's Tuki Tuki Valley, they knew the search for their forever home was over. They set about building a house, establishing a vineyard, planting thousands of native trees and raising their daughter, Sophie, in the beautiful surrounds they created.

      Nicola met Peter in the UK, when Peter was on an extended OE.  Since then they've travelled the world, living in Western Australia, Malaysia and China before finally settling in the Hawke's Bay in 2005.

      Nicola works full-time at a local primary/intermediate school. Peter is self-employed, and a born and bred Hawke's Bay boy.  He's a committed conservationist who has worked passionately over the past 10 years to protect the Tukituki River, and improve the water quality there. His knowledge of native plants and bird life is extensive. 

      Over the years Peter and Nicola had many comments from friends about how beautiful the property and area they lived in was, so in 2015 they set up their glamping site and started sharing it with visitors.
