Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 loved the fact we could bring the dog and that there was plenty of easy walks to do - house had everything we needed and was nice and tidy 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Functional and thoughtfully comfortable bach ( hot water bottles - didn't need! ) Wonderful selection of books. Peaceful, private and quiet base from which to explore Golden Bay. Garden full of birds and the magical Milnthorpe trails a step away. Beach ( walk to Collingwood) and harbour close, great base for kayaking and fishing. Dog loved the walks, dog motel useful if we wanted to head away for a whole day. Dog and people had relaxing and rejuvenating stay, will be back.

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Oh so quiet, just what we needed. Walk to the beach along bush walkways a pleasure and what a delight when you get there, golden sand, the ocean enticing you to swim- could be standing on a beach anywhere in the world.
