Gorgeous, beautifully finished romantic retreat. The complete switch off from power means you are totally present with each other. The fire place inside the cottages with the candle light, sound of the flowing river produce a delightful charming and romantic ambience. The outside bath all prepared for you is a special extra treat. The property is stunning, beautifully cared for... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here (without our children) to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and it was bliss. Every element of our stay was so carefully thought out by Jan, the hostess with the mostess! We loved the cabin being off the grid with only candle light. We loved the outside bath in a serene setting. We loved... More

We recently returned to stay a second time at Warm Earth cottage after being overwhelmed by the amazing friendly hospitality that Jan gave us on our first experience in winter 2013. The setting is so beautiful and peaceful with many highlights like the walk along the running rock stream, the warmth of the pot belly in our cabin, which is... More

We were greeted by Jan who was a fantastic host. Our cottage was stunning, private and secluded. Just the sounds of nature which made our weekend perfect. The outdoor bath was so relaxing. I loved the personal touches of fresh flowers. My husband always wants to head home early but he did not want to leave, and he still raves... More

There is absolutely nowhere in England like this. I would recommend Warm Earth to anyone who would like a romantic break and lots of peace and... More

I went here over Valentine's weekend and it was perfect. A truly special and relaxing weekend away. Jan was amazing. She brought up breakfast each morning which we would cook on the BBQ. We had a few dips in the swimming hole and of course each evening we soaked in the outdoor bath tub with a glass of wine. Highly... More

The serenity hits you straight away. Such a lovely energy that surrounds the place. I have a stressful job and was in need of destressing. I got that and more. Meditating by the river and listening to the Tui was calming. I didn't want to leave the place. Jan was more than amazing. Her connection to the place and the... More

I discovered Warm Earth Cottage by chance and so glad I did. We had a lovely stay here and it felt great to "hope of the grid" for a bit. I can only describe this place as magical and after one night here felt so restored. Jan is a wonderful host and we felt very welcomed and looked after. We... More
