Lovely farmlet with tame sheep, chickens and places to explore. Rural, sea, mtn views from farm.
Lovely quirky property, ideal for our wee family, very clean, comfortable beds, very quiet location and private.
We really enjoyed the characterfulness of Corru Gate, the fun of the farm, and the facilities. The location was ideal for us, nice and quiet and well off the road, close enough to Mapua to get there easily for dinner, supplies etc and for the whole family to cycle back and forth.
An interesting property, and a good location for Mapua and the region.
The property was GREAT ! The wood fire was a hooper addition to the cottage and as the weather was not great kept us all warm and snug. The property was in a very good location and anyone visiting must go down to the Apple Shack for a great view and incredible food. The owners were attentive to our needs and made us very welcome. The facilities were clean and very comfortable, the kids loved the treehouse style upstairs bed. I would highly recumbent this property and the others they have.
We had a very enjoyable stay in a great central location. It made visiting both Nelson, Kaiteriteri and everything inbetween easy day trips. This included some lovely beaches and Richmond pool not too far for an indoor splash about.
There was a lot of good exploring for the children and having a trampoline and playground on site gave them a bit of freedom, within hearing distance of the house. The accomodation provided everything we needed. Would not hesitate to recomend to friends and family.
