Great retreat in a rural setting. Had a very simple and relaxing time.

A nice cosy spot. The wood fire kept the living area and bedroom toasty warm overnight, despite it being quite chilly outside. Great to escape for the weekend, without giving up little luxuries (like Netflix!). We'd definitely stay again.

Fantastic rustic getaway in a secluded space, the house is a sanctuary. My husband and I will be back again one day! The kitchen is filled with lots of goodies, and the shower pressure is great! Great art pieces on display too, the space has a great vibe.

Charming place to visit in the middle of winter. Hearing the rain fall on the roof while we were nice and toasty inside in front of fireplace was magnificent. We were hoping to use the fire pit outside but the rain squashed our plans but definitely a great idea to sit outside toa…

Such a special place and experience. Everything you could possibly want for a retreat getaway. Really accurately described and reviewed by others, possibly even better in person

Wonderful wintery stay in a house full of art and character. Living room and bedroom were nice and cosy due to a very effective wood heater. Enjoyed bush walks straight from the back door. Lots of kitchen equipment and herbs to cook with as well. Thanks!

Leanganook was a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is cosy and comfortable, and the perfect place to stay if you’re looking for somewhere peaceful and serene.
