  • We had a fantastic stay

    We had a fantastic stay. Thank you for the complimentary wine and the little gift for my b'day! Great location handy to Napier and Hastings. Cottage is very well equipped, neat and tidy. Was lovely to sit outside admiring the beautiful garden and to lounge on the comfy couches in front of the telly :) Kids enjoyed the toys, bicycles and especially the foosball table! Wendy was always on hand to give advice of places to go and they made us feel like part of the family! Can't wait to go again!
