Ferndale Cottage - Warkworth

 The property was very clean and tidy. There was more than enough linen and a few nice touches which we appreciated very much. Having kids, it was nice to have a washing machine and tumble drier in the unit. The location is quiet and peaceful. 

Affordable with sea views and close to the beach

 Bach was exactly as in photos. Very simple, but it does the trick. Handy to lots of beaches, walks. In quiet, safe neighbourhood. We would stay here again definitely.

Ferndale Cottage - Warkworth

 Comfortable and spacious rustic, but interesting New Zealand bach. Open all the windows to keep it cool. Lots of good space outside, with a nice ferny lawn to read books on. Quite private. Short walk to the beach. Had everything needed.
