Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 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. 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 We loved the location the fact we could take the dog and the homeliness of the Bach will definitely be back 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Once again the bach, was clean, tidy and comfortable. So many walks and miles of beach. Highly recommend this bach and location. Bonus is you can take your dog. Not the best of weather this time, but we didnt care, so much to do. 

Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Location is awesome - native regenerating bush and wild long beach on the doorstep. Incredibly peaceful place to be. The house was cosy and clean with everything we needed. We intend to return!!!
