Rebecca and Noel purchased Rose Cottage in 2002 as a weekend retreat from their busy working lives in Dunedin. Falling in love with the area they decided in 2007 to make it their permanent home, after completing a building extension and a separate bed and breakfast accommodation.
Rebecca has a background in Hospice nursing and enjoys spending her spare time restoring the extensive cottage gardens. She has a particular interest in regional history and is a member of the local historical society and community garden group.
Noel has lived in Otago all his life and until recently worked full time in education. He has had a lifetime involvement in athletics and also regularly takes part in a variety of other outdoor activities including cycle touring, tramping, and photography. Noel is a member of the local Lions Club and historical society.
Rebecca and Noel obtain great pleasure in hosting people visiting Middlemarch from throughout New Zealand and all parts of the world. They ensure you a warm welcome and a relaxing stay.
