About our home

A Patch of Heaven is a quaint country cottage set in a scenic area. It is small but well equipped. We currently offer it holiday accommodation and have had people from around the world who have loved the simple back to basics life style. If you want to play at being the Walton’s or Little House on the Prairie cooking in a wood stove and roaming in the safe New Zealand bush this is it.
