What a lovely cottage! We arrived to a beautiful property with sprawling green gardens set back from the main road. The flat was well equipped with breakfast foods, kettle, tea and a small refrigerator. There was a toasty heater to warm up the space. The bed was very comfortable and linens were all very nice - there was even a heated towel rack in the bathroom! It is in an excellent location, only 30 minutes from Christchurch airport and we enjoyed a nice meal in the local pub that evening. Lucy was a very gracious host - warm, welcoming and we were lucky enough to enjoy some time by their beautiful fireplace in the main house. Would highly recommend, great value with easy access to activities and the airport.

Lucy and John were great hosts, very welcoming and happy to help with anything! It's a beautiful cottage not too far from the local services and was great for us on our travels down towards mount cook. Not far from Christchurch either so good base to explore the region. Had great mountain views and Lucy was happy to offer us some advice on travelling south. Lovely breakfast provided with fresh ingredients and potentially the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Would recommend this to anyone!

This cottage was a little taste of luxury for us - spacious and well appointed with incredible mountain views in the distance - and fantastic hosts. Cannot recommend it enough (and half an hour from the airport! Perfect for you first/last night in NZ, overseas travellers!)

Clean and cozy place to stay that's close to Darfield while being just outside to have a spacious and quiet stay. Would be staying again when around the area next.

Spotlessly clean and tidy, wonderful place and really hospitable hosts. The wifi is now up and running after much effort by John. Complimentary fruit and breakfast was included. A 4 square supermarket and a couple of nice places to eat out close by, plus a couple of takeaways. An ideal place to stop for the airport and Christchurch.

Lucy and John were wonderful hosts and made us very welcome. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The conversion of the cottage is very new and there are still a few kinks to work out with the wifi, but we were welcomed onto the main house veranda and into the house itself to use the main wifi (which worked very well!).

What a wonderful cottage with lots of privacy, a nice view to the nearby mountain range, great garden, fantastic for kids and two very lovely and generous hosts! Travelled with our one year old daughter, Lucy even provided toys, bedding and certain extras. Wish we could have stayed longer!!
