Nestled under shady trees, in a peaceful setting, is idyllic B&B Blossom Cottage. See the sun rising behind picturesque farmland, listen to the birds fill the air with their music and admire the Kereru, our native wood pigeon. Take a glass of your favourite drink and witness a shooting star, full moon or the Milky Way at night, while soaking in your own spacious, private hot tub. Magical! After enjoying the warm open-air shower at midnight and wrapping yourself in a fluffy, cottage bathrobe, you may come face to face with a local owl or a wandering hedgehog. Experience the fun, romance and serenity and do a cartwheel in the country meadow full of wild flowers. Mingle with our friendly chickens, mischievous donkeys, Teddy the cat and bottle feed the lambs. Meet the endearing lop-eared bunnies, including the charming, free-spirited Treacle, who has escaped his hutch, but visits regularly.
