Bellbird Ridge Cottage has a queen size bed with feather duvet and electric blanket. The bedroom also overlooks the garden and pond and you can lie in bed and listen to the morning chorus of our wonderful native birds which include Bellbirds & Tui's and enjoy the serenity of country life.

Our large pond is home to many native green frogs and they can be seen basking on the water lilies during summer. During spring the bog garden is colourful with iris and primulas and during the summer months the lobelia and native grasses provide a colourful and cool backdrop to the summer heat.

We have a large garden with mature trees, which include Conifers, Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias, Ericas and New Zealand natives. Springtime is very colourful with daffodils, bluebells and blossom in the garden and during summer the perennials are at their best.
