Quaint Lockwood River Cottage

 Thanks Bruce we had a wonderful stay. The price was right and cottage was clean and we enjoyed the privacy of the deck out the back. I liked the fact that it was on the small side as it made cleaning easy. Lockwood homes have a certain charm. We used the dump in Turangi as the rubbish is on Tuesday's, only $1.50 per bag. The cottage is in a great location, on the river side of Turangi and only a few minutes to the beautiful river walk. We found a bathing pool on the first evening.
