Uninterrupted ocean views and just a stone's throw to the Beach - Pencarrow Cottage is an ideal escape to the Far North.

This Russell holiday home offers bright and cosy open plan living, flowing out onto the decking overlooking Oneroa Bay (Long Beach). The newly renovated kitchen has all the essentials needed for a relaxed, easy break away. With two bedrooms, and a sofa bed in the lounge there is enough space to fit the family.

Throw the deck chairs out on the lawn and soak up the sun before taking a dip at the beach across the road, no more than 20m away! Russell wharf is less than a 5min drive away and is the pick up point for the many adventures out on the water. How you want to explore the islands is just a matter of choosing. Speed off into the distance on a trip to the famous Hole in the Rock, take it easy on a sailing trip , join a dolphin swimming cruise or even catch a fish. At the end of the day take a stroll along the beach after a good meal and watch the sun go down or just unwind on the veranda with a glass of wine.

Let the stress melt away at Pencarrow Cottage!

A great retro bach at an idyllic bay.

Stayed January 2022

We love the charm and simplicity of a stay at Pencarrow! It's got the views, the beach, and the convenience of being so close to Russell. We'll be back!

Stayed November 2021

What a gem! We had such a nice few days here. For those with toddlers or dogs please be aware there is now plastic fencing along the deck and a gate at the top of the stairs. I don't think this was obvious from the photos on the listing. A perfect spot. The waves lull you to sleep.

Stayed August 2021

Clean and tidy best ofr a couple or very small family as its not large. The TV needs drastically upgrading.

A very comfortable Kiwi bach right at a beautiful beach, and close to shops, cafes etc

Stayed June 2021

It was a nice property on a lovely spot. It was a great place to relax and read while listening to the waves. Russell is a pretty area and this was a prime location to get away.

Stayed May 2021

Thank you, what a beautiful slice of paradise you have! We loved watching the ever changing landscape at the beach, close to everything but far enough away for a nice quiet family holiday. Our dog loved having the beach to play on and the beach was beautiful and unspoilt, we will be back!

Stayed May 2021

Fantastic location - our family loved the cosy bach, the wonderful sea views and the family friendly beach on your doorstep.

Stayed November 2020

Excellent proximity to the sea, beautiful views. A short walk or drive into Russell to get the coffee fixed or catch the ferry to Paihia. Excellent location. Bach simply furnished but well-equipped.

Great location. Tiny toilet but great kitchen. Mosquitoes a problem.

A perfect old style family batch across the road from the beach, lovely getaway

Location is A++. Great place to relax and unwind. The sound of the waves at night was the highlight for me personally, although the awesome sunrise in the morning was a close second. :)

Great location but the house needs some TLC.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your feedback, Christine! We have taken your feedback on board and have relayed these to the owner to look into further.

Stayed February 2019

The location was wonderful and we loved going to sleep at night to the sound of the waves. The kitchen was well equipped. The Bach is in need of some maintenance, especially new curtains and flooring.

Bachcare replied

What a lovely way to fall asleep! Sounds so very peaceful! Thank you for your feedback on the bach. We will pass these on to the owners so they can be addressed.
