Originally the coach house for the historic Whangaimoana House this little cottage has been converted to very snug accommodation for two people. Tucked in behind the big house the cottage has it's own little private courtyard with outdoor table, chairs and BBQ.Using an open plan design you can relax in front of the open fire or lie in bed watching the flickering flames. When you awake in the morning to the song of the tuis and bellbirds you can cook your bacon and farm fresh eggs in the complete kitchen. The fridge is stocked with all the food you need for a large country breakfast, especially the freshly ground Supreme coffee.There is always home baking and fresh garden flowers supplied.There is a separate lavatory and the shower room has a wall heater and heated towel rail.A new feature is the installaion of FREEVIEW television so you can watch the Rugby World Cup games live. The very rugged, but beautiful coastline has much to offer. Just 10 minutes drive takes you to the Pinnacles, an unusual land formation, where some of the Lord of the Rings was filmed. Further on you will pass through the fishing village of Ngawi and then on to the Cape Palliser lighthouse and the largest seal colony on mainland New Zealand. The coastal road is ideal biking and the Palliser Bay water is renowned for diving and fishing. Your choices for evening dining are; a night in, a half hour drive to Martinborough for the award winning restaurants and wines or the Lake Ferry hotel with its fish menu just 5 minutes drive.

    We spent a night in the cottage while adventuring the area. There was all the basics you could ever need in the kitchen all well thought out with the perfect mix for a cooked breakfast! I would reccomend to anyone who wants an escape from the city.

    Second time staying here at it was as lovely as I remembered. Perfect size for two people, and beautiful grounds to wander around. Many thanks to Alastair and Jacqui for having us, and especially for having the fire going for us when we arrived!

    The property is lovely - the cottage is cosy but bigger than we thought! The fire going, fresh baking, delicious supplies for breakfast, and the heated towel rail going were all nice touches. The place was clean, comfortable and had everything you needed for a great stay. The chickens, ducks and pigs were also fun to check out. The place is a great spot for adventuring around the coast area - we very much enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much!
