Stayed March 2022

While Pihanga Cottage is well-sited and has the potential to be sought-after family accommodation our experience did not meet our modest expectations and we cannot recommend it at all in its current state.

Stayed July 2018

A very tranquil spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Our second stay with our 2 dogs who never want to leave this property because of all the lovely walks - which are in walking distance from the cottage.
