Fantastic View in Adorable Cottage
This perfectly appointed cottage behind our lovely host’s house was a breath of fresh air for us. Quiet, cozy and a stunning view. Our host Nigel let us know where all the local trails were and had a whole notebook full of historical articles on the area. They provided us with quality coffee, two kinds of cereal and milk for breakfast Pamela, our other host had quilts for our bed and sitting area. Handmade. If the weather had better we’d have had our own patio and bbq. A delightful stay.
Thank you Claudia.
We are glad you enjoyed your time with us.
A great place to escape the rat race
It was a lovely quiet country cottage with a beautiful outlook and just what we needed to relax and unwind. The owners Nigel and Pam are nice people and were very welcoming.
I recommend it to any couple who like country cottages.

Amazing spot. Me and my partner loved this place since our first trip here in Feb 2019. Great quiet place to get away from busy Auckland. Bird watch of the deck and the Gorge 2min away.. we did not walk the gorge this time around as the weather was abit chilly, however, was great to relax indoors. Great hosts, thank you Nigel and Pam.
