A perfect choice for a stay in the Matakana/Warkworth area being just 2 minutes drive north of Warkworth opposite the Cider Shed Cafe where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner.
Both the cottage and the suite are gorgeous and fully self-contained with charming decor, cute nick-nacks everywhere, luxurious beds and private decks where you can enjoy a drink surrounded by plants and arts 'n crafts.
Breakfast is whatever you like at whatever time you choose so we had a delicious cooked breaky delivered by Peter at 9am along with toast/jams and frothy lattes - it was so nice to just be able to relax and eat in the privacy of our own room.
The hosts, Annie and Peter, are very friendly and flexible too with check in/out times depending on their other bookings. They are not obtrusive but helpful if needed so you can just unwind and enjoy it all.
Would we go back? Well, we already have, with our son and his girlfriend, and they found it just as delightful as we did.
