  • An amazing well equipped and presented cottage for all age groups

    An amazing well equipped and presented cottage for all age groups. It had a homely feel about the place. Look forward to staying there again.

    The cottage is as advertised: well kept and on a farm, though quite private from the other residences on the land. The well kept gardens and mountain views are awesome. It is right across the 'lane' from the chicken coup and a 30 second walk to see sheep, pigs, cows and deer. We were able to observe some farming activities, bringing in sheep and moving them around some paddocks, a real treat for city dwellers. My two young girls loved feeding the chickens every morning and evening!

    What an incredible spot! We loved staying here - hens to provide eggs for breakfast, pigs to feed, sheep in the paddocks, a roaring warm wood fire to come home to - and the huge bonus of an amazing view with ruapehu as a backdrop! The cottage was also spotlessly clean, comfy beds and well furnished. We will definitely be back. Thanks debbie and family for a fanastic stay.

    Wow!! From looking at the photos of the cottage we knew we were headed for a lovely place and our expectations were well exceeded. Debbie and paddy have put so much into this beautiful old cottage and it really shows. We were impressed with the quality of all the kitchen utensils and crockery. The children were well accomodated for with toys, games and movies there was even safety plugs in the power points! We would highly recommend crumbly cottage to anyone and we would come back in a heartbeat

  • Crumbly Cottage is absolutely delightful

    Crumbly Cottage is absolutely delightful. We arrived on a cold wet day to a roaring fire, fresh farm eggs, and a gorgeous cottage with everything you could ever wish for to make it a memorable stay. Our two young boys (six and three) absolutely loved it too, especially seeing all the animals on the farm. We will definitely be back, and want to thank Debbie and Paddy for being such fantastic, hospitable hosts. We highly recommend Crumbly Cottage.
