Bach or holiday home | Taumarunui | #4451
Welcome to “Thyme Cottage”, a step back in time. Quaint and cosy this partially refurbished 1900’s “Railwayman’s Cottage” full of character is the place to stay. Where the original features have been preserved and the modern touches have been added to give you both convenience and efficiency.
Suitable for a couple of families or a group of friends to enjoy themselves.
With a wetback system on the coalrange and an instant hot water shower, there is always a continuous flow of hot water and being last in the shower no longer means a cold shower. Then after a big day out if all you want to do is sit back and relax you can grab that glass of wine, sit in front of the fire, watch the TV or a DVD or just read a book. For the kids the Video Machine, Playstation, books and board games are just extras to keep everyone happy.
Duvets, blankets and pillows supplied, just bring your own linen and towels. The Drying Room allows you to both dry and store gear so you are all ready to go the next day. With plenty of firewood and coal to help make your stay comfortable, we hope you will find Thyme Cottage your home away from home too.
Located 3 hours from Auckland (Manukau City) and 5 minutes south of Taumarunui, it is an easy drive after work and is the perfect place for that break away. 25 minutes to the bottom of Whakapapa or 40 minutes to Turoa makes the mountains easily accessible. The Central Plateau is a great place of adventure, so come and see for yourself and enjoy.

There was plenty to keep the kids occupied. Cleaning supplies were provided. The newspaper wall was interesting. I didn't like the cockroaches, the rat/mousetraps and bait at kid level. No hot water (except in the shower) until the coal range had been running overnight, then it was tepid, and the shower had pathetic pressure. Ceilings are sagging, and the kitchen ceiling has a hole. Under renovation, sure, more needs to be done for it to be worth the nightly rate. No cell coverage at all
