We are towards the end of a six week stay in NZ and this lovely and rustic single storey cottage was one of the very best budget places we have stayed in. It is very clean, characterful, has great facilities and also very warm hosts. The kitchen is the best equipped we have come across and the conservatory and garden are perfect for kicking back and relaxing. The bedrooms are cosy and very comfortable. There's not a lot to do around Methven in the summer apart from some nice walks in the nearby hills, but that's the point really. Come here for three nights minimum and switch off !
