Very comfortable and well equipped cottage in beautiful natural surroundings.

We had a brilliant time - Perfect set up for what we wanted. We had two girls who loved splashing in the stream. The walk was great for them - quite challenging but well worth it. Fire was so warm and wood was dry and plentiful. Birdsong in the morning was wonderful too. Loved it - look forward to returning.

About your host, Tineke

Tineke's Photo

Hey there, My husband Stew and I live along with our spirited three children on our bush block named "Longspur" originally "the longspur paddock" on the main farm. Stew is a fencing contractor around our district and I cater for guests tramping on the local Tora Coastal Walk. We're a relaxed, friendly family that wishes to share our piece of paradise with you.
