Small is good


Dalefield’s Pear Tree Cottage (right), one of the Wakatipu’s smallest accommodation providers, has taken out a prestigious prize.

A survey conducted by the national Corporate Events Guide has honoured the four-guest Pear Tree with the “best nationwide retreat centre” award.

The gong was announced at a function in Auckland last Friday. Pear Tree owners Terry and Erina McLean were told positive feedback won it for them – there was an “overwhelming response” from happy guests, they were told. The McLeans opened Pear Tree for accommodation in 1997.
