Very nicely situated. The cottages are very well equipped. The cottage keepers are a polite and funny couple and care about your wellbeing. We enjoyed every single day on our stay and could have been longer for a couple more days. Always again, thank you!

This is the best BnB we have stayed at in a long time. Cecilia and Darryl were fabulous hosts and take great pride in their beautiful property. We stayed in Moonlight Cottage which was exquisitely furnished with a super comfortable bed. The cabin was spotlessly clean. We arrived just after 2 lambs were born which was very special. We stayed 2 nights and only wished we could have had another night. Highly recommend.

What a truly hidden treasure Burn Cottage Retreat is! We had the absolute pleasure of being hosted by Cecilia and Darryl in early April 2021. The warm greeting and freshly baked scones were the start to a wonderful four night stay. The tranquil setting was matched by the delightful and luxurious cottage that became our own little hideaway. The cottage was cozy and warm and well appointed with everything we needed including a barbeque that was ideal for the lovely evenings in the secluded outdoor area. Thank you Cecilia and Darryl for your hospitality and we look forward to seeing you again on the stay we have booked for later in the year. Trevor and Belinda, Greymouth NZ

Thank you so much for your awesome comments and review - very much appreciated. It was lovely having you both to stay in 'our little piece of paradise' and people like yourselves make working in our business a pleasure as opposed to a job. Delighted to hear that you want to come back again and for longer - you will be greeted with a very warm welcome! Hope you have a great trip back to lovely PalmyNorth and enjoy your holiday in our stunningly beautiful Otago. Kindest Regards Cecilia and Darryl

We stayed for 6 nights in Little Rascal Cottage . We had the most special time. We LOVED the cottage and gardens. The cottage was spotless and superb. Cecilia and Darryl were the most amazing hosts and could not do enough for us. It was the little touches that made our stay extra special. The cottages are set on farmland and have beautiful gardens to wander in. Our cottage was very private and had its own BBQ and garden. We cannot rate this cottage highly enough. It was a wonderful base to explore Central Otago from. Our stay was perfect . We will certainly be back.
