My husband and I had such a wonderful time here. Andreas was so helpful in every way. He booked activities for us, loaned us beach towels. The cottage was so quaint and lovely. The gardens were beautiful. We woke up to wonderful birdsong every morning. The onsite restaurant was equally fantastic. We ate there every night.

Thank you 779Joy for taking the time to write such a lovely review, "quiet and peaceful" is the mission for us here. Cathedral Cove and the surrounding attractions really make staying here such an easy place to base yourselves. The birds are often seen in and around the Cottage gardens and are so beautiful at the moment. Tuis, wood pigeons,...

Spent 2 nights here in a cottage. Quaint, comfortable accommodation with veranda overlooking garden. Helpful staff, they have a board telling you best time to go to hot water beach each day. Church restaurant on site but closed on a Sunday and Monday.

we only stopped for the night but wished we had more time. Quiet and peaceful and loved the morning breakfast on the outside terrace. We were up at 6am and down to the cove for sunset.

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it! The staff were very friendly and approachable yet they were not in your face.

When we booked the Church, we thought it looked interesting, but on arrival it exceeded all our expectations.
