Simon and Meg

  Dames's has been the perfect place to pull over, put down our backpacks and guidebooks and take out our seasonal work permits.  We've been fortunate to have a caravan right on the orchard and so were never late for work!!

After two weeks of apple packing and stacking we certainly know our apples.  Next time around we will both be up  for a spot of picking out in the beautiful orchards.

Since driving here, everyone has been very friendly and welcoming to us 'out of towners' in the characteristic kiwi way.

Dames's location has been ideal, right between Havelock North and Hastings and has given us a good opportunity to explore the area in our spare time, not to mention a 20 minute walk to the pub!!!

There are the gorgeous Ocean and Waimarama beaches and a whole load of great wineries right on the doorstep all offering plenty of free tastings.  Bike riding from the Havelock information centre is an easy way to visit the wineries and if you are too wobbly to come home there is always the offer of a free pick up.

A great time, would recommend.  Thanks very much.  Meg and Simon.  London, England
