Welcome to Awenydd Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the Waipa District, rural Ohaupo.

Awenydd offers guest and hosted accommodation in a private rural garden setting. We have two accommodation spaces - AWENYDD COTTAGE a self-contained two bedroom cottage (sleeps 4) and the FORSTER SUITE in the main 1920's homestead (sleeps 2 - available soon) both with own decks.

Tastefully furnished, each room comes with free to view television and wi-fi, amongst other creature comforts of home. We have off street parking suitable for trade vehicles and camper vans. Laundry and drying facilities are also available.

See our ROOMS tab for more specific information on each of the accommodation options.

A Continental Breakfast is provided in your room. Set in rural Ohaupo our location is perfectly suited to independent business travelers, couples and small groups. 

We offer a home away from home, a retreat, for those wanting to escape the city. Whether it be on business in the Waipa, Mystery Creek or nearby Hamilton, a celebratory getaway or an excuse to breathe in some country air whilst passing through, everyone is warmly welcome.

Enjoy the sunset over Mt Pirongia with a cold one, socialise or unwind any way you choose. Outdoor shared spa pools nestled under a covered all-weather deck are available to guests to help unwind after a busy day.

We are smoking & vaping friendly - but strictly outdoors and always mindful of other guests.

A lovely retreat from the city, the cottage is warm, homely and comfortable...the hot tub was great and the fairy lights a nice touch. It was nice to enjoy a wine and soak! Julie and Jel the hosts were friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing getaway!

We arrived late in the night after traveling and Julie had the warmed up the room and also had the spa ready for us. Exceptional hospitality. A great assortment for the continental breakfast which included some lovely home baking! The perfect retreat for some relaxing time away. Highly recommended.

My partner and I had the most incredible experience staying at Awenydd. Such lovely hosts who have created a beautiful cottage for guests. It was all the small touches like warm baking on the bench upon arrival. It was so clean and tidy and I will definitely be returning!

What a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy - lovely rural-garden outlook. A wonderfully comfortable place to relax. Beautiful continental breakfast and delicious banana cake as well. I would be happy to recommend Julie and Jel - lovely hosts who provided everything to make our stay enjoyable. Next time we would hope to make our stay longer so we can truly enjoy all that this destination offers.
