Rowan Cottage is an oasis of calm and serenity surrounded by an abundant organic garden and orchard. It is the perfect place to launch into the wonderful natural extravaganza of Tasman and Golden Bay and the peaceful place to land again at the end of an exhilarating and exhausting day seeing the sights. Rowan Cottage has been lovingly transformed from a sheep paddock into an organic Garden of Eden. Our organic bounty is available to our guests as the season permits. We are pleased to be able to offer our sunny, garden room. Our Garden Room is separate from the main house and has an ensuite and television.
In our garden we grow a large variety of organic veggies that our guests love to see.
In our garden we have a variety of fruit trees that are abundant with beautiful organic fruit.
Our chickens provide the eggs, we make the jam from our fruit and we buy local fresh bread.
Renee and Trish are great hosts and the cottage is warm, sunny and comfortably spacious. The breakfasts of yogurt, muesli, fresh fruit and preserves and toast were great. The cute puppy, Tashi was a bonus. No complaints.

Sehr nette Gastgeberinnen die alle bemüht waren uns einen tollen Aufenthalt zu ermöglichen. Sehr süßer Garten den man voll mitnutzen kann. Man wohnt quasi im grünen. Super leckeres Frühstück. Unbedingt dazu buchen.

Rowan Cottage is an oasis! The property is unbelievably full of life. From Renee and Tish, to the wide variety of fruits and vegetables growing in the garden, to the chickens in the back.
The food was delicious- made with love, care and imagination. The setting was beautiful in a lovely garden- great peace and quiet. Renee and Tricia were very welcoming and helpful.

Renee's place is so gorgeous. It is impeccable and has everything you need. It's super convenient and close to town centre as well. She's a very welcoming and friendly person and would definitely stay here again!

Cute independent bedroom with private ensuite located by the side of Renee's house. It is really clean, quiet and extremely sunny. Renee made sure we had everything we needed and was super friendly. Would definitely stay there again!

You've captured perfectly the ideal "travellers getaway"! The gardens are very inspiring and the cottage brings calm to the soul, what a lovely blend. My favourite part was waking up to the choir of birdsong. Thank-you so much!

Lovely space, great gardens and good food. The attention to detail and the care in all aspects is gently and charmingly apparent. We've enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and look forward to returning some time.

...This has to be one of the best if not the best place we've stayed...
