  • A really awesome place for a holiday

    A really awesome place for a holiday. January was a perfect time for safe and fun swimming in the river, which is about one minute's walk from the house. Super private and comfy house with lots of games, books, dvds etc for kids. We had a wonderful time.

  • The Crib was comfortable and warm

    The Crib was comfortable and warm. We used the crib as a base while working in the area. I would like to spend more time in the crib on holiday as it was in a lovely position just above the river.

  • Herbert forest is a beautiful hidden jem

    Herbert forest is a beautiful hidden jem. Cosey Dell Crib was peaceful lovely and comfy to stay in and had everything we could need for our stay. We definitely will be back again as there was so much to do that we werent prepared to do eg.mountain biking,walking tracks,Oamaru activities etc. Its in a central location with only a short drive to Hampen,Oamaru, Moeraki. Felt like a home away from home. My children loved it! Thankyou so much ?????
