The property is set on 1.5 acres, fully self contained with one QUEEN bed / bedroom and NEW en suite (July 2011), plus new sofa bed (Nov 2013) in the open plan living area. Lovely warm place to stay in either summer or winter as it is north facing and has a logfire for the winter.

The cottage was adorable, immaculately presented, had absolutely everything we needed plus more. Home away from home. It was most delightful having the fire ready all ready to go when we arrived.
Orchard Cottage is a little gem, absolutely first class accommodation, very neat and tidy. Shirley has added so many extras, its just like being home. It is well sited and close for easy access to some brilliant Coromandel attractions and yet offers complete privacy. Shirley was an excellent host, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Orchard Cottage. Additionally our little Border Terrier had a good time with plenty of space to run around in, thank you Shirley.
