This was the fourth or fifth time we've stayed at Te Aute Ridge Cottage and it delivered once again. Unfortunately we picked the coldest night of the year, but we still managed to keep cosy and comfy. There really is no shower that compares to this one. That alone is worth the trip! We'll be back again.
We loved every minute of our time here - after a busy and stressful work week, we only had to drive a short way from the city to leave it behind completely - the cottage is so calm and quiet, tucked into the trees. The most special moments for us were being snuggled up inside on a rainy evening; meeting Wendy the cat; hearing the birdsong outside; and walking on the beach during a beautiful sunset. Thank you Margaret for creating this wonderful refuge - we miss it and hope to be back soon.
This is an absolutely magical property! It is at once rustic and charming but also incredibly well kitted out and luxuriously comfortable. We were very impressed at the lovely breakfast supplies and the great quality cookware etc in the kitchen which made it very easy to self-cater other meals. The bed with the mosquito net around it is beyond charming and the outdoor shower is fantastic. Would love to return one day!
