We loved staying in Raglan over the summer. It was far busier than we expected - if you want fish and chips on the pier go really early or really late. While you wait wonder down over the rocks near the boat ramp.
The estuary accessible in the street across the road from the house is breathtaking - the rolling farmland around it, and the beautiful clear calm water a delight for children.
It’s not far to walk into town from the house.
The house was very comfortable, including have books for the kids and games too. The main bedroom has a lovely balcony with French doors we left open all night ( no sandflies).
It’s a relaxed house for a large family, with a huge bath, and kitchen equiped even for baking (if you so choose to spend your holidays) though the oven smoked for a few days when used.
The garden wasn’t as extensive as I’d expected but the kids ran round and round playing hide and seek.
The dining options were lovely - inside or out, but the outside benches we scary, especially when the kids fell off - the timber had warped and was wobbly.
