Gwavas Garden Homestead


After dinner, why not retire to the billiard room and try your hand
at a game of snooker.

Or just sit in front of the open fire and take in the majestic totara mantelpiece made for the homestead in 1898. The billiard room was originally built as a children's room, before the second storey was added to the homestead.

The full size Burroughs and Watts table was ordered from London by ASG Carlyon in November of 1899 and sent by "direct steamer" care of Williams & Kettle in Napier.

To really step back into an era of simple pleasures we can wind up the original gramophone and drift back in time listening to music with the authentic crackle of history.
