Description - Bed and breakfast

Our home is a charmingly restored 100 year old villa. Set in the hills above a bend in the Kauaeranga River, this is a stunning place to relax and unwind. The property gets all day sun, and has fantastic views from every room. It is ideally situated for your first night’s accommodation in NZ or the last night of your journey, as we are only an hour’s drive from Auckland International Airport.

When you arrive at Cotswold, you will be welcomed with afternoon tea. We have information on local restaurants for your evening meal. In summer months you may fancy barbequeing your own food, in which case we can prepare for you a BBQ tray. This will allow you to sit in our lovely garden and enjoy one of our marvellous sunsets.

In the morning we offer a full continental buffet, followed by a cooked breakfast.

If you need to ease your tired traveller’s or tramper’s body, take a spa in our secluded spa pool in our private rear garden. Extra towels are provided.

In our guest lounge we have numerous brochures to help with planning your itinerary. We also have a selection of books on NZ birds, flora and seashells, plus magazines. Also in the lounge are a number of board games, and petanque and croquet for outdoor entertainment.

We have three guest rooms, all with their own bathroom, TV, wifi access, heating, tea and coffee-making facilities, and personal safe. All rooms have their own entrance, separate from the main house. The french doors all open to a sunny terrace, and from there the views are to die for. Guests have direct access to the guest lounge/conservatory and dining room.

The house is set in an acre of garden, which has plenty of outdoor furniture for guest enjoyment. Birdlife, both native and domestic, is abundant. We have a luxurious spa pool in a private garden setting available for use by our guests.
We have safe, off-street parking for vehicles.
