A warm welcome awaits you at Layers Lodge, this self-contained cottage offers you the perfect place to escape, relax and immerse yourself (if you wish) in country life. Feed the ducks, chooks, collect eggs with our family or enjoy your own privacy and space. This cottage has a well equipped kitchen, quality linen, a large deck with outdoor furniture and spa pool, and all the comforts of home. We offer unlimited guest access to our gardens, you are welcome to help yourself from the veggie garden, herb garden and orchard as the seasons provide their bounty. We have seven acres for you to explore, head down to the pond, cross the bridge and find a seat to sit and appreciate the native flora and fauna. Children are very welcome with well behaved parents as supervision by the creek and pond is needed. Please be aware we have a young family of our own who love the company of others, although we encourage them to stay away should guests prefer this. They are happy to share toys, trampoline and bikes etc. If you are looking for true romance and seclusion this may not be the right place for you. We are perfectly situated over looking Oruru valley with countryside views yet we are only 5kms from the coast. A folder with local opportunities is provided to help you explore and make the most of what this great neighbourhood has to offer. We have plenty of space for parking and a turn around making easy access for a boat trailer. Bait freezer and freezer space are available for your catch of the day.
