The cottage unit was comfortable without being...

You'll need transport, but it's well worth the trip up to beautiful Motueka Valley to reach Doone Cottage. Set above the river, the beautiful garden is a sun-trap. Plenty to do in the area, whatever your interests. Suggest staying 3 nights so you have time to explore and to chill out. And it's also worth asking if you can have...
