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.

 Perfect little set-up for two people and a great location as a base for exploring the region, in which we did. Great views from the patio.
