It's easy to lose track of time lazing around the cottage on a warm Greytown day.
Allow yourself to be transported to a quieter time, an age where nothing seems to matter.
This early settlers cottage, built in the mid 19th century, is nestled in a delightful garden setting.
Lavender Cottage has two self contained accommodation units only a five minute walk to a range of award winning cafes, restaurants and antique shops in one of New Zealand's most extensive displays of Victorian architecture.
The two separate buildings can be booked together, giving total sleeping accommodation for 6 people, or they may be booked separately.
The Guest House
The main cottage is kept warm by a wood burning fire and your worries can be soothed away in the deep claw footed bath.
The rooms are furnished in a style belonging to a bygone era, which complements the original Totara paneling.
The Lavender Room has one double bed and the Rose Room has two singles. They both feature antique brass and iron beds.
The charming Rosebud Studio/ensuite, adjacent to Lavender Cottage with two single beds, accommodates two guests. The studio has a shower and laundry and provides basic tea/coffee-making facilities, a fridge, and a microwave oven.
