Popped in to Mercury Orchard Heather & Barry were like long lost friends, that homestyle cooking and Kiwi hospitality is so hard to beat!
Beautiful home and business will definitely see you again we still need to see Cathedral Cove in the sunshine and pick fruit from the Orchard.
The setting is idllic even in the rain and the Fish & Chips from Cooks Beach hit the spot thanks again will be back!!!

Two self-contained garden cottages, country-style luxury with French doors opening out into the orchard, crisp cotton bed linen, fresh fruit, flowers and candles.
