Auckland Country Cottages - Tui Cottage

 Location is awesome, and if your looking at a great breakaway cottage. This is the place to be. 

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.

Auckland Country Cottages - Fantail Cottage

 Generally speaking the accommodation was very comfortable. The location is amazing, wonderfully rural, close to Clevedon farmers market etc. A problem was discovered with a component in the cottage which I believe has been addressed. The only other comment I'd have would be for the bedding available to reflect the temperature conditions. I.e. A summer weight duvet for warmer weather. Also to make available feather pillows.
