Fox Cottage is a place where you can unwind, listen to the nearby stream, read a book in the sun, or stroll to the nearby township and beaches. An award winning bach, being honoured with Bronze in the 2016 Bach of the Year Award for Best Hospitality from Bookabach.

It is very special, quirky and quaint, classic Kiwi Bach that sits on what used to be, the typical 1/4 acre section in a tranquil setting, surrounded by native bush and birdlife. Built for the local Post Master in 1910 this gorgeous cottage features natural timbers, New Zealand art, quality furnishings and linen that create a relaxed and warm decor.

The fully equipped kitchen has a great coffee machine and locally roasted Ozone Coffee with every stay. Complimentary Milo, tea, milk, eggs and other kitchen essentials are supplied. With the added bonus of a veggie and herb garden outside that you can help yourself too.

There are modern technologies including unlimited Wifi, a new Apple TV, Freeview and DVD player. On a sunny day outdoors, or rainy day inside by the fire, there is everything you need to keep entertained or just relax, hang out and rejuvenate.

At the front of the section there is a grassy area for games, with a deck off the master bedroom to enjoy distant views of Mt Taranaki and your morning coffee. In the back part you have a private entertaining area, outdoor table with umbrella and a traditional wood-fired outdoor bath. Plus a shed with a Webber BBQ, deck chairs, washing machine, freezer, two bikes and kids body boards for your use.

Suitable for either a single person, couple, two couples or a couple with a child/adult or friend.

Dinner by candlelight, champagne in the bath and movie in front of the fire… And by the way, we can organise a ‘Fox Cottage Romance Package’ if you want a romantic treat for you and your partner.

Just remember to bring your sunblock, beach towels and your jan...

  • Had a great time at Fox cottage

    Had a great time at Fox cottage. Lovely bach, tastefully decorated, lots of thought has be put into this! Enjoyed the lovely coffee machine. My only suggestion would be to have an oil heater or something that can be left on overnight in the bedroom as it gets a bit chilly once the fire has died down.

  • My only comment here is the shower

    My only comment here is the shower. I'm not tall but bending to get under the shower is not the best.

  • Very cool and quirky

    Very cool and quirky. Lovely sized section and great garden. Very private and peaceful. The cottage had a nice feel and all the extras made it really special. Comfy beds and good quality linen. Highly recommend this cottage.
