Sleepout available $20 pn extra.

All quality linen supplied, electric blankets, full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine. Outdoor clotheslines among the trees. Bath with shower over.

Loads of varied reading material. An excellent location for biking and walking as it is all flat!

Pretty antique china, elegant glassware, furnishings, ornaments and decor have been carefully chosen. Two sofas, extra chairs and dining table. Reading lamps and heaters.

Owners live nearby through the trees, but not too close and are available should you need anything. We respect our guests' privacy and in fact half an acre is yours to use.

We have an eccentric collection of BIKES for all ages and helmets for you to use if you wish.

  • The stay was nice but the property was grimy

    The stay was nice but the property was grimy... spider webs and spiders in so many of the corners and window sills, dusty/grubby cutlery and crockery, wifi didn't work unless you stood outside, old toothpaste in the sink and dust everywhere... Gail was lovely to deal with though..

    Very comfortable cosy cottage with everything you need (well equipped) & full of character. Handy location to Greytown - only a short drive. Nice & quiet set in a lovely garden.
