Miranda Cottage

Miranda Cottage is the perfect tranquil retreat for a romantic weekend or mini break. After your long plane journey recover before you start your New Zealand holiday or rest and relax before the journey home.

The two bedroom cottage is perfect for one or two couples, or a family of four.

Tastefully decorated bedrooms with a queen bed in one bedroom, and a king bed in the other which converts into two king-size singles. Beds are made with the finest Egyptian cotton sheeting, cosy duvets and mohair throws. We have a menu of different pillows for your comfort and guaranteed blissful sleep!

Portuguese cotton towels are available in two sizes, along with bathrobes, hairdryer and toiletries. The Italian tiled bathroom offers an extra large shower, vanity, toilet, heated towel rail and plenty of storage.

The kitchen is fully appointed for self catering with a full oven and stove top, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The sink is housed in a stainless steel island bench for casual dining.

French doors open out onto extensive decking from both the lounge and kitchen with a dining room in between. Watch a movie (from a library of DVD's) on the flat screen television or curl up on the leather couch or comfortable chairs and enjoy the peace and quiet. Listen to music, read a book or watch television. A bookshelf is well stocked with the latest reading - books, magazines and movies, and Sky Television is available offering a myriad of channels.

There is a wood fired stove in the living area that heats the cottage in winter. Plenty of firewood is available for your own use. Outside there is a barbecue for your exclusive use, and comfortable outdoor furniture to either lounge in or for alfresco dining on the deck. What more could you wish for?

Your stay includes:

  • Kitchen provisions - coffee, tea, milk, sugar, provisions for a continental or cooked breakfast, including fresh bread, eggs from the farm, freshly made jams, freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • Fresh flowers
  • Maps and books on New Zealand available in the cottage for your use
  • Free wireless over at the homestead if required

We regret that due to a number of steps to access the cottage wheelchair access is not possible.


There are a number of local cafes and restaurants, but if you wish to eat in the cottage, there is a fully equipped kitchen with gas hob, oven and microwave.
