We stayed in autumn so only a couple of the cottages were occupied but it would be full in winter I would think. Downstairs spacious well equipped kitchen with good size kitchen table and chairs, 4 ring ceramic stove top, good oven, dishwasher and pantry with good supply of china and glassware. Good electric heater in this area plus laundry... More

A very spacious self catering cottage with many homely touches. We arrived in the evening to find the lamps and gas fire lit, a very welcoming site for weary travellers. A chocolate each plus tea, cofee, hot chocolate, milo and basic spices etc in the grocery cupboard. The beds are extremely comfortable, with both bath and shower. We were there... More

We were taken by surprise that this cottage was completely ours. No reception desk, instead a white board to direct us to our cottage. Very spacious and it sleeps at least 6 with 2 bedrooms. Excellent bedding. Since we stayed here in December the place was pretty empty. We expect this will be different during the ski season. We loved... More

A fantastic place to stay, spacious, comfortable and warm, equipped with everything we needed. Highly reccomend this property. Handy to a variety of optios for dinning out. Close to the mountains for the skiing and a gateway to the South.

A beautiful cottage that is perfect for families or couples with the two ensuite rooms. Fireplace, sky cable tv and wifi ensured a comfortable stay. Pantry stocked with random things to get you cooking, gas stove top and oven and full cooking utensils ensured we could cook up a storm after our days up on the mountain. We couldn't fault... More

Beautifully appointed cottages in a unique setting, extremely private from one another. We found our cottage to have a well stocked pantry, although chose to dine out. Very spacious interior with restful decor and all the mod cons. Walking distance in to the main township (approx 10 mins brisk walk). The two bedrooms upstairs both have king size and single... More

Wow, we came to Methven for a boys golf trip. We played the amazing Methven course and the accommodation at Whitestone cottages was a perfect place to relax and unwind. The cottage was in immaculate condition when we arrived. Beautifully maintained yard helped take the stress away from the days golfing. Only 1.5km from the course was also a huge... More

We stayed two nights here during the last week of ski season in October 2012. The cottage was very spacious with 2 bed and 2 bath upstairs (sleeps 6) and kitchen and living downstairs. The fireplace in the living room was very welcome as the weather was still cold. Internal heating systems were available in all the other rooms. The... More
