Overview

Photos and Description of this Greytown holiday cottage

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

At pretty old-style-yet-new Bumblebee Cottage, the fixtures and furniture are tasteful and the full kitchen totally fitted out and appointed.

We are on town water supply which is unusual in the countryside, and have gas water heating.

You will find all you need for a luxury, self-catering holiday. One double bedroom, one single, and a new inner-sprung sofa bed in the living room, plus a loft which holds a double mattress made into a cosy bed.

Sleepout available $20 pn extra.

All quality linen supplied, electric blankets, full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine. Outdoor clotheslines among the trees. Bath with shower over.

Loads of varied reading material. An excellent location for biking and walking as it is all flat!

SKY tv, DVD collection, VCRs. Free wireless internet access.

Self-catering continental breakfast provisions are supplied.

Luxurious towels and bathrobes, hairdryer, toiletries and little luxuries.

Complete kitchen has well-stocked pantry, pots and pans, coffee grinder, plunger, a wide selection of teas, microwave, proper electric stove and oven, all kitchen implements and accessories.

Pretty antique china, elegant glassware, furnishings, ornaments and decor have been carefully chosen. Two sofas, extra chairs and dining table. Reading lamps and heaters.

Owners live nearby through the trees, but not too close and are available should you need anything. We respect our guests' privacy and in fact half an acre is yours to use.

We have an eccentric collection of BIKES for all ages and helmets for you to use if you wish.

Special conditions:

This cottage is not really suitable for children under about 8, but we welcome well-behaved family dogs 2 maximum. Non-smoking please. Check-in and check-out times are negotiable but normally in by 2 and out by 11.

You can safely park under the trees well into your half acre.

The cute sleepout cottage with deck is available with double bed and electricity but no plumbing, just along from the cottage. $20 a night extra for the sleepout.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

The stay was nice but the property was grimy.

  • 2 of 5

The stay was nice but the property was grimy... spider webs and spiders in so many of the corners and window sills, dusty/grubby cutlery and crockery, wifi didn't work unless you stood outside, old toothpaste in the sink and dust everywhere... Gail was lovely to deal with though..

What a wonderful stay we had at the Bumble Bee Cottage, Gail was so delightful and the place was warm and toasty when we arrived. Gail had left us all we needed for a relaxing weekend away, complete with breadm butter, eggs, milk and an array of spreads and teas. We will definitely be back.
