My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful night at the Warm Earth Cottages, celebrating our anniversary. Such a lovely place to stay - candles, flowers, woodburner and an outdoor bath - lit especially for us at dusk. We whiled away the hours and only wish we could have stayed longer! Jan is the most delightful hostess and our stay could not have been better! If you are looking for a romantic interlude with time to connect this is the place! Can't wait to return

The perfect place to get away from it all. No internet no power (in Cottage). Candles, a fire an outdoor bath (wood fire heated) yet close enough to civilization if you need it. Host Jan could not do enough to make our stay fantastic . Highly recommended for a romantic getaway 5 star !!!!

What a lovely place to stay to recharge the batteries! Jan is such a warm hostess who makes you feel at home and welcome. She lights the bath fire for you which means you can head off for a walk, read your book , cook dinner then get in for a soak under the stars. A beautiful breakfast hamper was ready for us when we woke up in the morning! Yum! What a feed!!! Ill be going back next time I need a rest!

This was the most romantic getaway we have had in the 43 years of our married life. Even though it was really wet we had the most relaxing enjoyable night away. Jan is the most thoughtful host imaginable. Everything was perfect . The outdoor bath was one of the many highlights of our stay. We were with our very good friends but with the way it is set up we had complete privacy. Absolutely amazing and would recommend this place to anyone wanting a weekend getaway. Thanks Jan.

We had a lovely evening meal at Warm Earth Cottage with a group of friends before Christmas. Pre dinner nibbles and drinks on the lovely deck preceeded a beautiful meal prepared by the team. There is also a lovely cottage on the property where a couple can stay. Warm Earth Cottage is high up in the Kaimai Ranges and very quiet and secluded. We didnt stay in the cottage but it looked lovely.
