We have stayed at Tussock Cottage on numerous occasions and we love it. Cosy in winter (with underfloor heating) and cool in a hot Central Otago summer, this is the perfect year round holiday home. The straw bale construction and the added touches of home grown honey and eggs (in season) along with home baked cookies, cool water and milk in the fridge make our stay special. The location is perfect for us, with beautiful Lake Hayes just a stones throw away, we recommend the lake walkway which takes about 2 hours. Lee and Japp couldn't be better hosts, there when you need them but also giving guests plenty of privacy. The cottage has a kitchenette but is also a short drive from the fabulous Amisfield Winery and Restaurant. What we particularly appreciate though is being able to bring our whippet who as an 'inside' dog is also welcomed by Lee, Japp and their friendly black lab.
