Lovely warm place to stay in either summer or winter as it is north facing and has a logfire for the winter.

The property is an oasis of a variety of fruits in the orchards which covers the property. Most times of the year there is fruit to sample. At the rear of the property is Driving Creek stream where the first gold was discovered in New Zealand and today you will find crystals there for a souvenir.

Also see the restablishment of native trees and wild life. On the way stop off at the funky Driving Creek Café.

The historic village of Coromandel is under 3km, with fabulous restaurants and craft shops. The 3 local pubs all provide courtesy vans door to door. The cottage is 7-8 mins to the closest safe beach or under 30 mins to the beautiful Whangapoua, NEW CHUMS and Matarangi Beaches on the east coast.

Also there are bush walks to native Giant Kauri Trees, artist studios to visit, great fishing region - if you do not have a boat we would be happy to organise a trip for you or a trip to the Cape perhaps.

  • The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and conveniently located

    The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and conveniently located. In hindsight we would have liked to have booked for another couple of days.

  • Comfortable, well-appointed

    Comfortable, well-appointed. Cooking, sleeping, showering all easy. The little ants in the bathroom are interesting, very persistent, but not bitey. The one thing I would add is a fly-screen on at least one window, so that air can flow through without flies entering. Kathy & I both really liked the Coromandel generally, and the eponymous town and this good value accommodation, specifically. Thank you - we hope to return, minus a 1-in-century weather event!

    Owner/manager responds:

    We are pleased you were comfortable, and thank you for the feedback. We do not normally have a problem with ants or flies, and I think it was more the extreme weather, but we will ensure the problem is taken care of. We would be happy to have you stay again.

    We didn't mind being out of the shopping area because we had a car. Very charming surroundings ie orchard and gardens, private. Plenty of inside room with all necessary items from extra pillows to salt and pepper in the kitchen cupboard. Attractive and clean. We loved staying in Orchard Cottage and will recommend it to others and use it again if we are back in the area.
