Auckland Country Cottages - Tui Cottage

 The place in itself was very clean, super comfy and very close from Clevedon. It allowed to enjoy Clevedon, Splore and have a quiet place to rest and relax.

Auckland Country Cottages - Fantail Cottage

 Location was fantastic. Made you feel like you were further away. Good positive energy. Safe. Comfortable. I appreciated the organic homemade touches. My partner claims the Meusli was the best he has ever had!! Haha. And the spa was perfection under the lightening of the storm. Everything you could possibly need was at your finger tips. The perfect little get away. Thank you.
