  • Stayed for 4 night for a wedding in Edgecumbe

    Stayed for 4 night for a wedding in Edgecumbe. Place is perfect 10ms away from the farm. Nice and tidy. Sheets & Towels were provided. 2L milk was also provided. Having 2 toilets is a plus. Only downside was the hot water ran out on our 4th & 5th morning. It was only myself and hubby. Other couple have left. Not sure if we had to wait for a few mins. Other than that it was awesome! Ta

  • Excellent beds and layout with 2 toilets

    Excellent beds and layout with 2 toilets. Kitchen was well stock with fresh fruit and vegetables, milk in the fridge ready for coffee and breakfast. Excellent location in country setting and only a short drive to towns. A very modern and new cottage.

  • Brenda was fantastic, checking in with us as soon as we arrived...

    Brenda was fantastic, checking in with us as soon as we arrived and offering up suggestions for places to eat and shop in the vicinity. She took us on a tour of their beautiful property and welcomed us to share in the fruit from their orchard. We also enjoyed Isabelle the dog who we played fetch with as well as all of the ducks, geese and rabbits. It was a very nice place to stay!
