The Orchard Cottage is a lovely little retreat. With a 'shabby chic' quality, the style is relaxed while never compromising on comfort. Quality 100% cotton linen, a spacious bathroom with a bath, plush towels and high pressure shower. An open living space with cushion-filled day beds (provide extra sleeping for 2), lots of holiday reading and a kitchenette with everything you need for preparing light meals. For your convenience, you can also purchase local wine and condiments from the Orchard Cottage 'Provisions Store', a personally selected range of our favourites.

We're a tight family of 3, myself (Justine) and Joe, parents of Holly Lane. Two furry friends complete our little clan, Lilly the small grey cat and young Benson the clever Border Collie cross. We've recently moved to beautiful Northland, NZ from a more city life in Wellington. We've travelled to many places around the world and are now embracing the treasures right in our own back yard.
We're passionate foodies, excitedly discovering delicious local artisan products and like to pass on our favourite finds to our guests.
