It is out of the way but you are surrounded by wildlife and silence.
Just great.
Well appointed and quite spacious it has everything you need.
Very comfy couch and perfect bed.
Sky TV is provided for wet days but so much in the area to do.
Old cemetery just up the drive as well if you are in that frame of mind!
Cheers Deb for letting us stay. Think we will be back.

DESERVES MORE THAN 5 STARS. Out of over 20 properties we stayed at during this holiday trip The Country Cottage was by far the best. In fact it is now placed as No 1 in the list of favourite places we have stayed at world wide. The property is in a lovely rural location, yet just a short and pleasant drive away from Hokitika and even Greymouth is easily reached. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, generous in size and has been furnished with love and ippecable taste.. The large open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen is dual aspect with a pleasant view from the kitchen onto the adjacent woods and the view from the front lounge sliding doors is pleasant looking down the valley. The sliding doors open out onto a sheltered decking area which is perfect for al fresco drinks or breakfasts. The lounge area has a lovely wood burning stove which is plumbed into the hot water system and we greatly regret that the weather was not cold enough to tempt us into lilghting it. The lounge has a large modern television together with a good selection of DVDs and CDs for the radio. The kitchen is well appointed and Debbie is very generous with the items she has stocked the larder and fridge with. The bedrooms is also of a good size with ample wardrobe space and with access to a lovely ensuite shower room. Outside there is ample parking space including a covered car porch which also has a washing machine and log store. In addition to the excellent accommodation offered in The Country Cottage our stay here was enhanced by the wonderful attention to all our needs by Debbie for whom nothing appeared to be too much bother. Our only regret is that we had only booked in for two nights and our schedule was not flexible enough to allow any changed. Well done Debbie. Denis & Wendy

What a wonderful wee place to stay! Was looking for a private, modern place to spend a romantic weekend for our anniversary. The cottage is in a lovely rural setting, but only 10 mins away from Hokitika. It was spotlessly clean, very well-equipped, very warm and comfortable. We had a lovely bunch of flowers and a pkt of biccies awaiting our arrival. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Cottage, and I'm sure we will be back in future!

We had an absolutely fantastic stay with Debbie and Ron. The cottage was brilliant - spotlessly clean, comfortable and cosy, and Debbies attention to detail was the best - even down to the choccie biscuits there on arrival! Ticked all the boxes (and more) for great bed, quiet and good shower. Shame we couldn't stay longer but will definitely stay longer next time. Can highly recommend - just make sure you stay longer to see all that Hokitika has to offer. Ian and Julie Denby
