  • A lovely bush setting

    A lovely bush setting. Breakfast on the deck with the pohutakawa in bloom was a treat.

    The property is very clean but it’s old and really needs some upgrading. It’s very tired and original carpet needs replacing, towels are old and a sofa in the lounge would be better than a single bed. Rick the host is very nice but I found the standard just a bit too basic. With some love and attention the place could be more comfortable.

  • We very much enjoyed our visit to Raglan and our stay in...

    We very much enjoyed our visit to Raglan and our stay in Rick's cottage - Kent Terrace Accommodation. The cottage is found at the end of a long drive, but close to the amenities of Raglan - a fantastic location. The views are lovely, with harbour views in 2 directions and plenty of greenery and distant houses. The cottage itself is basic and slightly old fashioned, but clean and bright, comfortable, homely and well cared for. We enjoyed coming home after spending our days out and about in Raglan. Thanks for a lovely stay Rick.??

    All good and as Rick described. He puts a lot of effort into the small touches and that made it easy for our family.
