There is also the detached Garden Suite with spa bath and shower sitting comfortably in the cottage gardens, with super king bed or twin, offering peace and privacy for guests wanting a space of their own.

Fresh flowers picked from the in-house garden greet you on arrival. Individual decor, traditional hand-made patchwork quilts, brass beds take you back to a different era. Bathrooms are decorated with old-fashioned, hand-painted 'Georgian' tiles and have showers and toilets; two also have a claw-footed bath.

Television, magazines, a wide selection of books and the daily newspaper invite you to relax in the guest lounge with tea and coffee available all day. You could also enjoy a book or cup of tea on the wide-sweeping verandahs, in the conservatory, or surrounded by flowers in the cottage garden, whilst enjoying the ever-changing water in the bay.

 Marilyn, your host, prides herself on the home-cooked, healthy 'start-to-the-day' breakfasts that include - fresh orange juice; fresh fruit salad or fruit platter; home-made bread or muffins; sour cream and pear pancakes or orange oatmeal pancakes; home-made jams and preserves; Ounuwhao's special Russell French toast with fresh fruits and Greek yoghurt & freshly brewed tea and coffee.

The Ounuwhao Harding House is smoke-free. The guest lodge is closed in June/July.
