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

Wow!!!! This would have to be one of NZ's best kept secrets in B&B accommodation. The secluded, romantic surrounds coupled with Jan's hospitality, kindness and generosity surely will not be found anywhere else!!! Two of the best nights we have ever encountered. Make sure you grab the dinner package as well, that way you do not have to leave the... More

One night in the Serenity Cottage was all it took to unwind and relax. We were blown away with Jan's hospitality - she has thought of things before you have even realised those things will make your stay extra special. No power and minimal cell phone coverage weren't a issue. The babbling brook, cast iron hot tub for two and... More
