If you're needing an escape to unwind, relax and reconnect, this is where you should be! The grounds are beautiful - spacious, well landscaped and with a river (which in summer would make a fab swimming spot) at the bottom. So much birdsong! It is laid out in a way that makes it easy to seem you are the only... More

The place was situated in a valley which added further to that feel of complete privacy and far away from the madding crowd. Our host was discrete and solely focussed on ensuring that we were comfortable and not wanting of anything. The outdoor hot tub was sheer indulgence. Beautifully appointed cabins with the ultimate comfortable bed. Lots of tuis and... More

One of our favourite places to stay in the world! Beautiful cosy cottage with comfy luxurious bed and wood burner to stay warm. The woodfired outdoor bath is amazing! Jan is the best hostess and puts so much effort into making our stay special. Can't recommend this highly enough! We will go back every year.

This place is bliss, we had a lovely time. No power, no interruptions. The outdoor bath was fantastic, the host was very discreet but she looked after us so well! We woke up the next morning to a basket of breakfast ingredients and didn't even hear her. The cabins are gorgeous, comfy bed, lovely and clean and a nice atmosphere.... More

The most relaxing experience in beautiful scenery ever! Fantastic food and amazing host Jan. My highlight was soaking in the hot tub with a wine and listening to the sounds of the wildlife. Highly recommend.

What a place, and what an outstanding host! I can't speak highly enough of how beautiful the cabins are or how well the grounds are kept. Not only that, but the food was generous and presented immaculately. In the afternoon we sat down by the swimming hole at the picturesque river and read books for hours and just relaxed. The... More

Jan is a wonderful hostess who puts so much effort into every detail of your stay at Warm Earth Cottage. My husband and I were blessed to have been able to come and stay for one night at the very end of 2013. We were visiting from Canada and had been looking forward to this one particular night on our... More

One night towards the end of summer was really good but this year we went for two nights in winter's first weekend, mainly so we could enjoy the in-cabin pot belly fire experience. We love everything about Warm Earth Cottage; the rural, secluded feel, the pampering, the breakfast and other treats, the sights and sounds, the lounge/library and ready fireplace,... More
