Olive Tree Cottage

Built in the 1930’s, Olive Tree Cottage was originally a 3 bedroom kauri cottage on surrounding farmland. It was lovingly renovated in the 1990’s to form a beautiful venue for weddings and private functions. The original owner, Pat Best, had a vision of somewhere people could come and relax, to enjoy and appreciate the surroundings while spending time at special occasions with family and friends. Pat, who is now in her 80’s, is still a vital part of the cottage’s upkeep.

Family Ties
