Description

  • Country seclusion with the convenience of being only 10 minutes from New Plymouth
  • Perfect for tramping. Close to Egmont National Park with views of Mount Taranaki
  • Perfect for families - we have a toy box, trampoline, trees to climb and lots of space to run around

The small kitchen has a stove, microwave and fridge and a basic selection of pots, pans and utensils to allow you to cook a meal. If you find you're missing anything, you're always able to borrow it from the main house. We provide complimentary eggs, bacon and bread if you book more than two nights. Otherwise there are breakfast cereals, milk, plunger coffee and a selection of teas.

Guests are welcome to access our garden and the property. We have two young boys (9 and 7) who love to entertain children and are happy to share their toys and trampoline.

We have a cat (Cocoa) who lives in the house with us. We have two pet sheep who live in a paddock at the rear of the property. They're always happy to have visitors and pose for photos.

We're happy to help when required, but do work so we may not always be available during the day. Feel free to come over to the house if you have any questions, or, if you'd prefer to be left alone to do your own thing, that's perfectly fine too.

Please be aware that this is a rural property. Post Office Cottage relies on rain water for its water supply and has a septic tank. We ask that you conserve water where possible by being mindful of the length of your showers, but expect that neither the water supply, nor septic tank will impact on your stay.

We have a portacot and can also provide a highchair. Just let us know in advance and please bring your own linen for the cot.

There is always plenty to do in Taranaki why don't you come and experience it for yourself?

Special conditions: No Smoking. Please don't park on the grass - it gets soggy when it rains and we'd hate for you to get stuck. Cleaning is included in the price, so we really appreciate it when our guests do the dishes when they leave and leave the cottage as they found it. Please check all the lights and electrical appliances are turned off and there are no dripping taps when you leave

  • The cottage is a beautiful old building

    The cottage is a beautiful old building. It was immaculately clean with really nice decor. The bed is large and comfortable, it is well equipped and the breakfast provisions were really nice. Only 2 small criticisms, the TV is quite small [but who goes on holiday to watch TV] and the deck was a little slippy. However, if this property is available, book it would be my advice!

  • The Post Office Cottage is a simple charming experience

    The Post Office Cottage is a simple charming experience. The massive big window behind the master bed that looks directly onto the private garden (trees and shrubbery) was stunning. the kitchen was well stocked with basics and the opening windows everywhere afforded plenty of fresh air. Despite being a small, simple one main room, the cottage is full of history and interest. Many of our meals were spent on the lovely front veranda. The stay was a highlight of our recent family holiday.

  • The post office is beautiful and we would certainly stay here again...

    The post office is beautiful and we would certainly stay here again and recommend to family. We loved the features of the post office (including the toilet being in the old telegraph office!) . Everything we needed was there. An ideal location for exploring taranaki and new plymouth, as well as providing a restful and quiet break. Looking forward to visiting again sometime!
