Just be aware there is no phone signal or WiFi in the accommodation. The WiFi is only available in the Koru restaurant during the summer months.

                An ideal place to relax after a long-haul flight”

                1. The service and support from Sally and Sacha. 2. The beautiful surroundings to relax in. 3. The lovely feel of the cottage.

                We could not have wished for a better stay. From the moment we arrived to the time we drove out on our way to our next stop, Sally and Sacha had made our stay an idyllic one. The cottage was extremely well set up with essentials and nice touches. There was ample space for us to re-organise our luggage from "flight mode" to "travelling/cycling mode". The setting in amongst the trees, shrubs and ferns is a very calming one. The kitchen equipment worked well and having a gas BBQ on the verandah, allowed us to prepare a wonderful evening meal with the very fresh ingredients prepared and provided according to Sacha's advice. The gardens are a delight to explore and the restaurant/tea rooms a great place to enjoy some wonderful home-cooked delights.
