Overview

Photos and Description of this Warkworth holiday cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

Relax by the wood burner, walk down the garden path to the Glen Eden river and admire the Tui, Kereru and Fantail in the established trees.

Located just beside our historic school house, it is private and super comfortable with quirky decor and artwork throughout. There is a rustic outdoor bath to relax in under the stars and garden views from every room.

Just around the corner you'll find Charlies Gelato garden, the Matakana markets and superb cinema, The pub (a must visit), Ascension Wine Estate and much more.

Minutes from Omaha beach, Tawharanui and Goat Island marine reserve. Perfect retreat from the city with private access to the river and use of our kayaks. We also have a divine vintage and homewares shop on-site.

Come and rejuvenate at a little corner of paradise.

What a little gem, the house is gorgeous and there were so many beautiful interesting things in it. We loved the chickens running around the beds were comfortable and it was a really relaxing mini break. It was a bonus having the cool shop to poke around in and Haidee has such great taste. The driveway is a little hairy but we worked that out, would absolutely recommend this place and would stay again. I would love to stay in winter to light the fire and have a bath outside.

Lovely comfortable, homely house.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable, homely house. The beds were very comfortable. Nice rural outlook with the river & kayaking just a stones throw from the front door. The property is very easy driving to numerous places in the Warkworth/ Matakana region. We really enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay again.

The house was adorable.

  • 5 of 5

The house was adorable. I loved the styling, particularly the upstairs bed linen and the wood burner. The location was fantastic with an easy drive to the collectors trail stops and matakana mareas just 2min away by car. It was nice to be off from the road and have the animals all around. A very relaxing little spot.
