Three of us had only a couple of nights in Fig Cottage but wish we could have had longer. Barry was running the place on his own whilst his wife was visiting family in Australia. A charming helpful man who couldn't do enough for us. His breakfasts are not to be missed - although the weighing scales may say otherwise. A beautifully situated B&B with plenty to see and do in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Paua Bach and Fig Tree Cottage are nestled amongst 5 acres of peaceful country gardens and orchard. Two self-contained garden cottages, country-style luxury with French doors opening out into the orchard, crisp cotton bed linen, fresh fruit, flowers and candles. Special to Paua Bach is an old fashioned outdoor bath. Watch the variety of our birdlife, smell the blossoms and flowers, listen to the wind in the old trees and explore the hidden places. Quiet and relaxing, perfect for that special anniversary or as a restful time away. The area is well known for crafts and gardens. Local activities include swimming, diving, bush walking, tramping, horse riding, fishing, kayaking, scenic boat cruises and golf. Cathedral Cove, Cooks and Hot Water Beaches are 7-8 min. drive. There are several good cafés and restaurants close by, alternatively BBQ your evening meal Kiwi style. Meet our friendly dog, kune kune pigs and chickens. ... more less
