My husband and I had a two week old baby when we chose to stay at 40 Thornycroft Street. It is no mean feat travelling with a young baby and I found the owner Vivienne Turner to be extremely accomodating. She even provided a cot and a pram for our use! I would recommend this accomodation to everyone including young families with both younger and older children. A walk around the surrounding streets showed what an excellent place it is for a family holiday. A quiet culdesac - there is a park complete with swings and slides across the road, a large grassy area and a tennis court. A children's library is nearby and it is all easily accessed without the fear of traffic. In fact there is very little traffic in the area, and so was quite a peaceful holiday (as much as can be expected with a young baby). There are supermarkets and restaurants only a short walking distance away. The accomodation is lovely. There is a beautiful courtyard which immediately makes you feel very tranquil and relaxed. And the breakfast! What a chef, absolutely yummy. The only disappointment was having to move on to our next destination. We have stayed in many B&Bs around New Zealand and this was by far our favourite. Thanks!
