When some quiet time-out is required it would be hard to beat a stay at Burn Cottage Retreat. The setting in amongst gorgeous trees & gardens carefully & diligently maintained by Rose & Phil is very special, and the featured Hosta gardens are stunning to see en masse. The cottages are very modern, clean & comfortable. Secluded patio areas to sit with a wine (or cup of tea!) are a delight. The hosts are friendly & caring, giving generously of their time.
The town of Cromwell is 3kms away which is only a 5 minute drive. Bicycles are provided if you want to cruise down to the lake or take the healthy option into town. Cromwell is well situated amongst some of NZ's best vineyards, most of which offer tastings, and some have a restaurant attached. Cromwell has adequate shopping and many cafes and restaurants.
All in all, Burn Cottage Retreat has so much to offer for those wanting a touch of quiet luxury in the countryside, with the lure of civilisation not far away. We will definitely be back.
