A sudden sense of stillness takes over as you meander your way down the not-so beaten pathway towards the back door of Church Cottage. Having felt obliged to turn your car engine off on the way down, engaging in neutral and free-rolling the gravel road, in keeping with the sounds of what surrounds, you know you have arrived in Churchhaven.
This classically styled cottage opens its stoic wooden doors to the heartbeat of the home, where the kitchen, dining and living space stretches itself open-plan. The kitchen cupboards are completely kitted out with all of the practicality one desires when cooking up friendamily feasts. But its the whimsical antique whisks, and cheese graters that you’ll have the most fun with in a linen apron on loan. Books, boardgames and binoculars are there for those moments when you’d rather not be swimming, kayaking, exploring, or sofa-snoring. The large open fire place in the living room is a temptress at her best for wintry days and nights, but the lagoon will keep your feet yearning for that final evening stroll on the soft, white sand. After which, it’s a toss up over who’s having a long bath in the victorian tub, who’s starting the pizza oven on the verandah, and who’s pouring the wine.
Gentle hues of candlelight flicker from floor to ceiling of the cottage, at night. Warming up the shaggy rugs, wide open armchairs, long sofas and dinner conversation.
You’ll awake to the internal church bells of calm calling – Who’s getting married in the morning? You. To the lagoon that you’ve lusted over all night, pondering the depths of its tantalizingly tranquil turquoise waters. You’ll be wearing your kikoi and you’ll look just perfect.

The cottage stay was excellent. Living off the grid took a little getting used to but we adapted quickly! Thanks for the great stay.
We loved our stay at Church cottage . The house was really comfortable and well equipped but could do with a couple of sharp kitchen knives . The pizza oven was a huge bonus and we had lots of fun making our own pizzas . Also loved that we were able to use the kayaks on the lagoon. Hope to be back soon!
