    Fantastic location, stunning views, warm and cosy even in August! Lots of room to gather together around the fire. We would definitely stay here again. Loved the lake front walkway, should have brought tennis racquets!

  • A beautiful cottage with all the comforts of home

    A beautiful cottage with all the comforts of home. We stayed towards the end of autumn and the fireplace and spa was a real treat. Hoping to stay again in summer to really make the most of everything on offer at Winstone Cottage. Would happily recommended the place to anyone looking for accommodation at Lake Tarawera ??
