At pretty old-style-yet-new Bumblebee Cottage, the fixtures and furniture are tasteful and the full kitchen totally fitted out and appointed.

We are on town water supply which is unusual in the countryside, and have gas water heating.

You will find all you need for a luxury, self-catering holiday. One double bedroom, one single, and a new inner-sprung sofa bed in the living room, plus a loft which holds a double mattress made into a cosy bed.

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!

SKY tv, DVD collection, VCRs. Free unlimited wireless internet access.

Self-catering continental breakfast provisions are supplied.

Luxurious towels and bathrobes, hairdryer, toiletries and little luxuries.

Complete kitchen has well-stocked pantry, pots and pans, coffee grinder, plunger, a wide selection of teas, microwave, proper electric stove and oven, all kitchen implements and accessories.

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.

    This cottage is absolutely gorgeous, set in a mature planted section of the property and only minutes drive from Greytown shops and restaurants. The cottage is beautifully furnished in style of it's own and has lots of lovely crockery, 'bee' themed lampshades, sheets and other quaint knick knacks. It was the perfect size for 2 of us and had everything needed to ensure a relaxing break. Gail and Peter Isaacs are perfect hosts, greeting us on arrival and showing us the ropes. Gail and Peter are very friendly and willing to socialise without imposing, we were hardly ever aware of their presence just across the garden where they live but they responded immediately when we had a query and regularly collected used towels etc. The cottage has plenty of heating if required and a well stocked pantry of staples as well as bread, milk, eggs and cereal on arrival. Full sized fridge was great and the bath was fantastic with lots of choices of body was, shampoo, soaps, and other personal items suppl

  • Adorable little cottage in pretty surroundings

    Adorable little cottage in pretty surroundings. Quiet, private and equipped with every amenity we might need. Adorably decorated and themed with a personal touch, but not cluttered or overwhelming like some themed accommodation can be. The cottage was warm and inviting. Our family loved it. And big bonus for also being very pet-friendly!
