Whitestone Cottages are a complex of four cottages which I assume are all identical. We had cottage no 2 which was set back a little more from the road. There is every facility you could want, including a car port for keeping the car cool in the summer! It was clean and tidy when we entered with the lights on...

What a treat. The cottage exceeded our expectations. Well equiped, great quiet location, plenty of room for family, warm and homely. Alex went out of his way to ensure our fire was working esp considering the temperature outside. Great location for skiing at mt hutt. Nice to come back to "home" after full days. A treat of snow for snowman...

Lovely spacious cottage, all the amenities of home and easily the nicest place that we stayed while in New Zealand. Because it was off-season for skiing, the price was amazing. Provided a perfect base for our young family to explore the beautiful Methven area and do some day trips a bit further afield in the Canterbury region. Easy walk into...

We stayed in autumn so only a couple of the cottages were occupied but it would be full in winter I would think.

A very spacious self catering cottage with many homely touches. We arrived in the evening to find the lamps and gas fire lit, a very welcoming site for weary travellers. A chocolate each plus tea, cofee, hot chocolate, milo and basic spices etc in the grocery cupboard. The beds are extremely comfortable, with both bath and shower. We were there...

Hi ozzyfamilyholiday, First impressions are very important, equally as important as the quality of the establishment, cleanliness and to a lesser, price point. We are so happy you felt welcomed by the cottage on your arrival – this was what we try to achieve. We do supply a few very basics, normally tea, coffee, milk but at times we do...

We were taken by surprise that this cottage was completely ours. No reception desk, instead a white board to direct us to our cottage. Very spacious and it sleeps at least 6 with 2 bedrooms. Excellent bedding. Since we stayed here in December the place was pretty empty. We expect this will be different during the ski season. We loved...

Hi Appletreelane, We are glad you got to enjoy the peace of Whitestone Cottages and the lovely estate.
