One reason perhaps is the Cottage itself.

Yes, it’s luxuriously comfortable, with its Rimu interior and carpeted throughout. Downstairs there’s a large lounge, writing desk, dining area and full kitchen facilities including a dishwasher. For entertainment there’s a stereo, Sky television, DVD player, a small library and to keep you connected – high-speed internet. 

Upstairs there are two identical double bedrooms with super-king size beds that can be split into two large singles if required. Both bedrooms have rural views, a large leather arm-chair to relax and plenty of space to unpack.

Guests seem to be happy to stay longer and longer, reading all the books from the library, updating their social-media posts and generally lazing the day away sleeping in the super-sized beds.

Surely our guests would get tired of that…

“Spacious and comfortable with everything you would need. Great views, very peaceful and quiet, clean and tidy, top class fittings and furniture. This is an excellent cottage with a lot of added benefits… There are Moreporks calling at night and at any time a Weka could appear stalking through the very nice gardens. To be honest it is one of the best places we have ever stayed at - anywhere!”

“Perfect! Everything about this place was great - location, space, the scenery, and the hosts were great. I definitely recommend staying here, I wish we could have stayed longer!
