From the moment we arrived Dennis & Sue were welcoming & enthusiastic about their cottage & the area AND with good reason to be too!!! The cottage was devine, clean with all the comforts of home! Once we arrived we knew it would be a hard to leave! The views were incredible & serene!
Can't wait to come back already!
Warkworth & Matakana (both short drives) were beautiful little towns, Brick Bay Sculpture Trail well worth a visit too
