Russell Cottages - 16 Chapel Street, Russell

First Class Accommodation

Welcome to the traditional charm of the thoroughly modern Russell Cottages.

Located in the Bay of Islands, Russell (Kororareke) was the first capital of New Zealand. Only 3 hours drive from Auckland, Russell has always been a focal point in the bay.

Originally an old whalers retreat and port, the village is steeped in history. From streets lined with quaint weather board cottages, the old iron clad general store, the historic Catholic mission and the favourite big game fishing ground of the famous American author, Zane Grey. Russell is part of living history, set against a background of the irradiant blue water of the bay.

Russell Cottages echo the charm and history that is, Russell. Adjacent to the historic school site, on Chapel Street in the heart of the village, the cottages are nestled in established trees, and beside a running brook.

Built from traditional timber weather board, the three and four bedroom dwellings have solid timber floors, raked timber ceilings and are fully appointed to a high standard.

Russell Cottages is local in Central Russell. YOU MUST ARRIVE BEFORE 10pm as that is the last car ferry to Russell from the main land.

From Auckland - take state highway 1 to Whangarei. From there, follow direction (north) Kawakawa. From there, follow direction Russell/Paihia/Bay of Islands. At Opua, turn right to the car ferry (available until 10pm).

From car ferry landing, Russell is 10 minutes away. The Russell Cottages entrance is local on 16 Chapel Street which is one of the main streets of Russell.

Alternatively, the old Russell road from 20km after Whangarei on the right is a beautiful scenic recently tarred road (1/2 hr more). Or from Paihia (buses from Auckland direct) by passenger ferry every 20 minutes until 10pm.
