We have stayed here twice now and we love it. The cottages are spacious and clean and well appointed. The breakfast is fantastic. The views are great and the area is a great place for a break. Highly recommended.

Alison suggested things that we might like to do, including borrowing DVDs and CDs from her collection. The cottages are situated in rolling countryside with magnificent views in all directions....

We couldn't have asked for a better holiday accommodation for some rest and relaxation during our week of holiday at magical Mangawhai. The Fale Cottage has great views of farmland and the harbour. It is private, spacious, nicely decorated, well equipped and immaculately clean. We also enjoyed Alison's DVD and CD collection, the Sky Cable TV and free wi-fi (handy...

Mangawhai has grown tons since we were last there and finding a place over the height of Christmas season seemed a tad unlikely but I emailed Alison the owner and she responded late at night to come along. Her place is quite placid, with a pond out front and rolling hills. The stars when we were there were spectacular and...

We didn't really know where we wanted to stay during our recent holiday to New Zealand, but we knew we wanted to stay in a cottage somewhere. I stumbled upon the listing for Mill Ridge Cottages on here and a quick look at their comprehensive website was enough to convince me that this would be a good place to stay....
