For those who enjoyed Ronnie the cat we sadly had to say good bye to him in March 2018. He brought us so much joy and as he choose to live with us we were very fortunate to have had him in our lives. We are certainly missing him. Thank you for all the pleasure you gave us all Ronnie.

 Cobden Garden December 2016

Cobden Garden is now 15 years old.  We arrived in Napier 19 December 2001 and had our first guests 29 December 2001. We are welcoming back a couple who stayed with us in that first season this week.  Whilst they will see many changes we do hope that they find the hospitality and welcome as good if not better than their first stay.

We did celebrate in the appropriate way.






17 September 2015. We were thrilled to announce that we have been named the winners of the Hawke's Bay Tourism Accommodation Award for 2015.The awards were led by Hawke’s Bay Tourism in conjunction with its parent group the Hawke’s Bay Tourism Industry Association (HBTIA). Hawke’s Bay Tourism General Manager Annie Dundas said “We’re delighted to see such great industry engagement and support of each other because it’s important to take time to acknowledge and celebrate local businesses who work so hard to deliver amazing experiences for visitors to Hawke’s Bay. The winners here tonight play a pivotal part in doing that and are well deserving of their accolades.”
