  • Absolutely lovely and private, pretty much everything you would need is provided,...

    Absolutely lovely and private, pretty much everything you would need is provided, the kindling was already stacked in the wood fire and the spa pool was heated and was blissful on a cold, rainy weekend! Property was exceptionally neat and tidy, and very clean upon arrival. My only suggestion for improvement would be better cutlery and sharper knives.

  • We had the most wonderful stay at Bird Song Cottage

    We had the most wonderful stay at Bird Song Cottage. The house is stunning and we didn't want to leave! The spa got plenty of use and it was lovely to explore the meandering bush tracks around the house. We had an amazing time and will definitely be back!

  • Wow, so relaxing

    Wow, so relaxing. If you are wanting a quiet, peaceful break away this is the place. Lovely trees and bird life surround the property and the garden pathways are awesome. Your own little forest. The spa is so relaxing and the cottage has a cosy warm feel to it. Only 1/2hr drive to Masterton and Greytown and Carterton are good shopping and eating stops. The Birdsong cottage is well worth a visit,
