Ferry Man’s Cottage offers luxurious and romantic holiday home accommodation, set in its own private 12 acre section at the very end of Birds Ferry Road, forming part of our 33 acre property.
It is the perfect spot for a romantic weekend or mini break or a family holiday. Located on the edge of a small Lake, 2 km from the highway and, with native Wekas, Pukekos and wild ducks as neighbours this is a most peaceful spot. The rare Kiwi can be heard at night here.
The luxurious bach (cottage) is finished to a very high standard and designed to take in the panoramic mountain and ocean views. All the luxury touches of Birds Ferry Lodge but with a fully equipped kitchen in your own very private setting.
There are two large bedrooms, 1 x four-poster Queen, and 1 x Superking which splits to be 2 singles.
There is a sleep sofa in the lounge.
Cot and high chair are available as well as a wide selection of indoor and outdoor games plus DVD’s.
The cottage is very cosy and warm at all times of the year – the bedrooms have oil filled radiators, electric blankets, the bathroom has underfloor heating and there is a ‘Metro’ wood burner in the lounge which packs a punch!
