Management response:

Thanks so much for taking the time to send your kind review, it's great to hear you enjoyed the cottage and its surroundings. Mr Cadbury does do great chocolate! Best wishes for the rest of your time in NZ - any time you're back this way you'd be very welcome to return to stay with us.
