  • Great wee cottage in a superb setting

    Great wee cottage in a superb setting. Very quiet and good for star spotting at night! A bit tight on space for three people.

    Great location, near local wineries and tavern, with easy access to cycling and walking trails. Bungy jump 5 mins and Arrowtown 20 mins away by car. The cottage (picture book) provided all essentials for a great stay with a view to relax to

    Fantastic place to spend anniversary - loved the setting and history of the place. Modern interior very comfortable bed and lounge with open fire. Just off the main road but very quite. Visited some great vineyards nearby - recommend mt roas and brennan (perfect for lunch-they do very good platters). A little disappointed that no river access from accommodation-but other than that everything perfect.

  • We spent a fabulous week in this beautifully restored cottage

    We spent a fabulous week in this beautifully restored cottage. It was a delight to return "home" after a day of exploring to our tranquil abode. We appreciated the generosity of our near (but far enough away) hosts - mountain bikes, washing machines, maps, great conversation....Definitely a place to return to.
