Birdwoods is a very special place in the heart of beautiful Hawke's Bay. Set in the countryside just 3km from Havelock North village, Birdwoods is a 'must see' for all visitors and locals, offering a gallery, sculpture garden, cafe, real fruit ice-cream shop and our much loved old fashioned sweet shop.
Opened in 2005 by Bruce and Louise Stobart, the Gallery's home is the original church hall from St Peter's in Waipawa built in 1894. The old hall has since had a beautiful conservatory added and the extensive grounds include an outdoor terrace, a Garden Room, a Sun Room and a large sculpture garden and water feature, inhabited by ducks and gold fish. Visitors enjoy Birdwoods famous cafe treats all year round in one of the Bay's loveliest settings.
Right next door to Birdwoods Gallery is the Birdwoods Sweet Shop, an old fashioned sweet shop 'just like you remember' housed in a charming one room colonial cottage made from reclaimed materials. Packed to the rafters with a treasure trove of sweets, it’s a favourite of young and old.
The words most often used to describe visiting Birdwoods for the first time are, "serene", "wonderful", "delicious" and "stunning". Come and experience beautiful Birdwoods for yourself - available now via all the tours shown below.
