  • A fabulous country location with just a short drive to Hastings

    A fabulous country location with just a short drive to Hastings. The cottage was situated in a quaint 'secret garden' where we enjoyed the morning and evening sounds of the tui. The kids loved the afternoon swims in the pool right next to the cottage. The cottage provided everything a family would need including a laundry. The breakfast provisions of cereals and spreads were a nice touch. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We would def stay again.
