Kokopu Cottage

Kokopu Cottage is in an idyllic location beside a stream with gardens and  orchard.
Beside the stream is an outdoor wood-fired bath.
Kokopu Cottage has two bedrooms, the main bedroom has a large lead light window
and  beautiful hand crafted bed.
There is an open fire in the living room so it is very cosy on cold  evenings.

Kokopu Cottage Outdoor Bath 

The cottage offers an ideal honeymoon retreat with mornings spent in bed, the birds singing outside.
The second bedroom has a large comfortable single bed with a rollout single which comes to the same level.
There's plenty for the children to do outside while you relax in the intimate living room with a glass of wine.
The bath hidden in the bush is a short walk over the bridge.
Slip in for a romantic treat with just the stars for company and the open sky above.
Well behaved pets by arrangement.
