Right in the heart if country. Very spacious bed rooms, good size living area with Sky channels. Fire place to give you that country feel. Beautiful surroundings with cattle, horses, pig farms around. Spa with beautiful views of the farm land and far mountains (but comes with some extra payment). Very good host, friendly and helpful. The only downside is that you can't pay by card, either cash or bank transfer. Overall very relaxing place, for families or couples.

We walked in the cottage door and my 16yr old son said 'wow this is really nice', that to me was enough said. It looked exactly like the pictures, and then Wolfgang (the owner) brought our home cooked meal in which was perfect after a full day of travelling. It was enough food for us both for 2 days dinners.

With cows, & pigs near me (both of which I love), I was in heaven. I would definitely recommend this accommodation. The beds were comfy, It had everything (apart from tea/dish towels).

The only things I would mention as being negatives were:- The internet doesnt reach the cottage, & we were informed to try it near the entertainment area, but we couldnt get it there either, we had to stand in the owners 'back yard' to get it, right near their house, so felt a bit weird standing there. The mosquitos are insane, so take your mozzie spray.

Unfortunately you cant keep the cottage doors/windows open at night as they all come in, and then it'd get hot, so with just a high ceiling fan to stir up warm air, maybe air con, or fly screens would be a good idea during the warmer months.

We didn't get around to using the spa or swimming area, had a busy schedule. But a huge thanks to the owners for a nothing short than pleasant stay.

It was so pleasant

thank you so much for great review. WI FI is finally installed! Thanks to a newly invented
box which in based now in the cottage you stayed. It reaches the other cottage, too. That
means we have in both cottages SKY on DEMAND, too. Sorry about the tea towels.
Usually at least 2 are in the cottages.
Maybe I can welcome you again in the future.
Thank you

We took a family holiday up north in the Bay of Islands and spent four lovely nights at Milton Park. We booked both cottages which was the right choice for us to have more space and to have the outdoor facilities (i.e. pool / spa / bbq / games area) all to ourselves. We had 12 people for the first 2 nights and dropped down to 6 for the subsequent nights. Everyone had an enjoyable time and at no point did we feel cramped or encroaching on each others space.

The location was beautiful - tucked away, you’ll enjoy peace, quiet and serenity, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist towns. On a cloudless night, zero light pollution allows you to see all the stars. During the day, you can explore the gardens and watch the animals graze. The host happily showed us around and even gave us fresh lettuces from his garden. Want to explore the surround towns? You’re only a 10-15 minutes drive away from shops and restaurants in Kerikeri or Paihia, or a couple of hours from the top of the country. Perfect for day trips, or just stocking up on supplies.

The modern cottages were well equipped and laid out if you want to do cooking and plenty of bedding was provided. We found everything clean and tidy. We especially loved lounging on the decks overlooking the picturesque fields and swinging in the hammocks.

Without a doubt this is one of the best family retreats we have ever been on and Wolfgang the best host you could hope for. Everything exceeded our expectations and the reviews and description of this place just don’t do it enough justice, you really have to experience it in real life.

Room Tip: Book both cottages if you want all the outdoor facilities to yourself.
