So Riverlea cottage is a very peaceful tranquil location. it's hard to put your finger on why this is. it just is. Insulated from train noise behind an embankment 100 meters behind the house it is quiet. Being only 150m from the Wanganui river through a public reserve, where you can catch trout from the riverbanks it's popular with Fishermen and women. We have a lot of guests staying who come to enjoy Canoeing down the River www.blazingadventures.co.nz, Cycling, and walking the Trail, especially the Timber Trail https://www.thetimbertrail.nz/ and 42 Traverse and the Tongariro crossing, lots of people come to enjoy Bookings with Forgotten World Adventures https://forgottenworldadventures.co.nz/ and of cause we have many people who come for Skiing and Snowboarding on Mt Ruapehu http://www.mtruapehu.com/ about 40 minutes drive away and in the other direction the Waitomo Caves an hour away https://www.waitomo.com That's one of the key benefits of this location, it is so central. You are less than 3 hour's drive away from 8 major cities and countless activities all within an easy drive.
But most of all Riverlea Cottage is comfortable homely, the beds are comfortable and the Shower is good and the house is fully decked out. The Bookshelves have plenty of Books and recent Magazines so it's the perfect place to relax and there is lots of Art on the Walls.
