Kathy from Nelson
Loved this place! If you are cycling Alps2Ocean it is a perfect stopover. Its only a 5mins from the track and its got a great shower, and an outdoor bath to soak in while you look up at the stars. Its on a farm, so its very quiet and private. The bed is comfy and the little kitchenette has everything you need. The cottage has been beautifully restored. We stayed 2 nights, but didn't meet the owners. Arrived late, out all day and then away early. But you can tell the owners have put a heap of work and love into this lovely old stone cottage, bringing new life to the cottage, and a wonderful haven for passing travellers.

Dear Nathy Thank you so much for you review and stay, We're very appreciate hope can welcome you back again . Kind regards Tume 😊
An absolute gem of a place to stay! We are returning guests and stayed two nights this time. What we love - the generosity and thoughtfulness of the hosts, the history of the cottage and the integrity in its restoration, the peaceful environment, the outdoor bath and BBQ area, amazing shower, beautiful linen and a comfortable bed, the old fireplace which warms the cottage up very quickly, the night skies. We could just go on... Nothing negative to say about Limestone Cottage! Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
