What a great place to stay! Peaceful, romantic, warm and with everything you need. The bed was comfortable, the outdoor bath was great and the fireplace was gorgeous. We hope to be back.

We relished our few days at this fabulous, historic and romantic little cottage. From the outdoor bath to the gorgeous open fire, we just loved the ambience and ‘get away from it all’ location. Will definitely be back! Highly recommend!

This place is like living in history. The owners have resurrected this old cottage into an enchanting piece of magic. Plenty of luxury, plenty of history in those old limestone walls. They leave plenty of wood so you can go to sleep on the supremely comfortable bed while listening to the sound of a living fire as well as appreciating the firelight! Never had the need for the outside bath but there was plenty of hot water if you wanted. The views outside offer something not seen in most parts of NZ - limestone plateaus with the tops so straight and green and in the background a peep of high mountains! Not far from the main road but you do feel the wilderness!
