Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Great place to stay, perfect location for our family gathering. Lovely setting looking out to the bush. Clean and tidy. Spacious Homely thanks :-) 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Second visit here and we just love the location - just minutes away from beautiful Milnthorpe beach and directly opposite the woods with all the lovely walks. We just love this end of the bay, far quieter. The Bach has everything we needed and is clean and comfortable. Loved the neighborhood weka too who visited at mealtimes! Just one thing-try to tighten the screws on the incredibly squeaky bed in the main bedroom - as a very light sleeper I woke up every time my husband moved.

 We (including our dog) had a fantastic time at Milnthorpe. The cottage was well equipped with a very comfortable bed & very spacious with enough room to park our boat. Althouigh the cottage is on the same property as our hosts they gave us our space. We will be back next year :-) 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Had an absolute fantastic time at Milnethorpe Holiday Cottage, so good in fact, I was a little hesitant in leaving a good review as we wanted to return in 2015. However, somebody has already beaten us to it, not to worry though, they have another property in Collingwood which we are renting over 2015 Christmas period. The cottage is a great place for children and dogs being in very close proximity to the wonderful bush and of course the awesome beaches, also a very quick drive to Collingwood. 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Close to beach. Quiet. Clean and spacious. Easy to find. All facilities of a typical NZ beach bach.
