A poem written by one of our clients Bob Lowe:

Holiday Cottage – Nelson - February 2014

The grass slopes to the fountain.

The sun warms the verandah at breakfast and dinner.

In the kitchen garden, the tall corn stands rustling

While the goats clamber on each other

And we talk through the sunset.

  • Waterwheel Cottage is the perfect place to stay

    Waterwheel Cottage is the perfect place to stay. The cottage is in beautiful grounds, so peaceful, with plenty of wildlife to enjoy. The cottage inside is warm and sparkly clean with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The location was perfect, central to everything and I couldn’t fault anything. I 00% totally recommend Waterwheel Cottage and if I could I would go back again tomorrow.

    The peaceful gardens gave us great pleasure, the cottage is very comfortable and has everything you could want for. Ali's generosity is amazing, especially the delicious goats' milk. The bed and linen is lovely and we so enjoyed everything. Would stay for longer next time.

  • Delightful, well designed compact cottage in an amazing garden setting

    Delightful, well designed compact cottage in an amazing garden setting. A haven of peace and tranquility,(the occasional pukeko squawk and goat bleat accepted).

  • Property is beautiful

    Property is beautiful. Bed is very comfortable. Extremely relaxing place to spend a few days. Town of Mapua is not very far away and makes a nice place to visit. Kitchen is a bit make-shift, but there is enough to cobble together an acceptable meal. I would recommend staying here to anybody and would definitely come back when visiting the area again.
