We were greeted by Jan who was a fantastic host. Our cottage was stunning, private and secluded. Just the sounds of nature which made our weekend perfect. The outdoor bath was so relaxing. I loved the personal touches of fresh flowers. My husband always wants to head home early but he did not want to leave, and he still raves...

I went here over Valentine's weekend and it was perfect. A truly special and relaxing weekend away. Jan was amazing. She brought up breakfast each morning which we would cook on the BBQ. We had a few dips in the swimming hole and of course each evening we soaked in the outdoor bath tub with a glass of wine. Highly...

The serenity hits you straight away. Such a lovely energy that surrounds the place. I have a stressful job and was in need of destressing. I got that and more. Meditating by the river and listening to the Tui was calming. I didn't want to leave the place. Jan was more than amazing. Her connection to the place and the...

Took my husband here for his 50th. Complete surprise for him, and way more than I expected. From the welcome by the host Jan (who does an amazing job with such a big property), to the beautifully presented cabin, the sound of the river so close, sleep ins - only to wake up to a BBQ breakfast being left in...

If you are after a romantic get away for a night or two, go to Warm Earth! Jan and Walter are amazing hosts, with lovely smiles and warm hearts. We stayed two nights, one with an evening meal, the other without. There is no elctricity in the cottage just candles and gas cooking. A bath in the evening can be...

I discovered Warm Earth Cottage by chance and so glad I did. We had a lovely stay here and it felt great to "hope of the grid" for a bit. I can only describe this place as magical and after one night here felt so restored. Jan is a wonderful host and we felt very welcomed and looked after. We...

We've just got back from our romantic getaway at Warm Earth Cottage. Jan gave us a warm welcome, made sure we were settled in and then gave us complete privacy to enjoy the the beautiful property, open-air fire-lit bathtub and cozy candle lit cabin. In the morning she popped by with a big basket of goodies for us to cook...

From the moment we pulled in the drive and saw the 'Kids Cabin' we knew it was going to be an amazing weekend. We were promptly greeted by the lovely, welcoming Jan who showed us around both cabins and the guest lounge. After little consideration we chose to stay in Serenity and it was just perfect. From the candles, to...
