  • 4 Guests
  • Studio
  • 2 Beds
  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Kids ok
  • No Pets
  • No smoking


  • 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

  • Lovely, cosy cottage in beautiful settings

    Lovely, cosy cottage in beautiful settings. Perfect for our one night stay.

  • The cottage was beautiful and characterful

    The cottage was beautiful and characterful. It's located in peaceful green surroundings, enjoyable for a glass of wine on the deck. It was well equipped, with enough kitchen equipment to self cater. Whilst optimal for 2 people, the Cottage was also suitable for a group of 4 like ours, with the kids sleeping on the fold-out sofa. Egmont Village is perfectly located for touring - 10 minutes to New Plymouth, 5 minutes to Inglewood and 10 minutes to the North Egmont DOC Information Centre

    The Post Office Cottage is in an ideal location for those wishing to visit either New Plymouth or the Mountain region. It is a lovely, relaxing retreat that quite simply works on all levels. It is a typical cottage that is tastefully decorated, comfortable, has everything you need and would be welcoming in either summer or winter. A place we will return to soon.
