Great little cottage, cosy with wood range. Sheltered and private in a wonderful location. Recommend for anyone looking for a weekend away from it all.
A simple cottage that takes you back to the old days. I love this place, highly recommend to those who like adventuring, enjoy making fires and cooking on the old cooker and having easy access to some of the best parts of NZ wild scenery.

Cozy, old world miners cottage in a beautiful quiet spot. Old world, old school. Sitting round kitchen table, reading on the front verandah. Loved it.
