Welcome to our Kiwiana classic cottage which we have taken great care to retain its original character and charm but is comfortable, warm and modernised. The cottage would suit a small family but is ideal for a romantic get away. It has two bedrooms with the optional extra of a fold out couch, available in the dining area. The cottage also has a brand new woodburner, to keep you toasty warm in the winter and a heat pump for instant warmth or air conditioning in the summer. For your entertainment, it has sky TV with sports channels, wifi a blue tooth music station with i-phone charger and a range of games, toys and DVDs. The front deck receives all day sun.

The nearby domain has children's play areas, tennis courts, cricket, football and rugby pitches and outdoor fitness equipment.

    Property is quaint and cosy, was perfect for a get away for us! The only complaint I would have is the toilet is FREEZING cold and is is hard to see into the pots when cooking on the stove as the overhang is very low. But apart from that it was great!

  • Not bad for the price

    Not bad for the price. Great having Sky and DVDs there. A bit of a hike to the pools and more bugs and spiders inside than expected. Worked well for our family of 5.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The walk to the pools is 10 minutes but may take a few more minutes if you have kids. A lot of our feedback identifies the location as a positive because it is so quiet (other than birdsong) and the garden is so large. We have never had a complaint about bugs and spiders but acknowledge that Hamner has its fair share of insects due to its location, particularly in the summer.
