Cottage 103 by Sudbury
103 Te Hapua Rd, Te Horo
Simple but elegant, with an open log fire and French doors, Cottage 103 is the ultimate private haven and offers sumptuous seclusion perfect for honeymooners, romantic weekends and that special time away with friends.
The whole cottage is stylish but cosy: deep leather sofas, with skins and rugs to snuggle into, an open fire, SKY TV with surround sound, fluffy bathrobes, French doors onto the expansive deck, two bathrooms, two bedrooms with the finest Egyptian cotton linens (one with a King bed and one with either twin beds or a Superking bed) and, if the well-equipped kitchen fails to persuade you to cook, there are many fantastic cafes and restaurants nearby.
Outside is just as stunning. Perched on a ridge looking over the farm and down the valley, Cottage 103 boasts incredible views from an expansive deck. The beach is a 15-minute walk down a quiet country road where you can enjoy a romantic stroll on the deserted sands before returning to relax in the cedar hot tub under fairy lights.
