  • Cosy quaint and welcoming

    Cosy quaint and welcoming. Sky TV a bonus and internet access useful for the girls. The BBQ was good and having a pleasant surroundings to eat was good. My daughters loved the loft bedroom and surroundings were very pleasurable

  • Just the most delightful cottage surrounded by a most beautiful garden

    Just the most delightful cottage surrounded by a most beautiful garden. Annie and Liam were wonderful hosts. Great location for discovering the Nelson Lakes area, Nelson itself and the villages on the way. The hamper on arrival was a real treat. We would love to return and would recommend the cottage unreservedly.
