What a delightful place to stay. We had three lovely days enjoying the cottage - a slice of NZ history but with all the modern day comforts you need. Plenty to do in the area and Diane, our hostess, was great at offering us a lift when we needed it. Many thanks for helping make an unforgettable experience.
We spent a week in this lovely cosy traditional cottage - we felt like settlers with all comforts. We loved the wooden floors and shelving, the veranda with its views of the bay and visits from cheeky kaka. The path to the cottage through the bush like approach makes it feel very private and special. We woke up to bird song which continued through the day with a pair of tui regularly visiting. And I saw a kiwi very briefly as it wandered from our garden to next door's garden Just magical. Best part of a wonderful month in NZ.
We had a magical stay at Pilgrim cottage. It is a very private place. Stunningly beautiful and Dianne is a great hostess.
