Over the years Dene has hosted international guests in his home. It was a natural progress to move on to a bed and breakfast lifestyle. Combining his passion for food and his love of hospitality Dene and Linnette decided to set up Coatesville Lodge.


Linnette has a many year’s experience as a flight attendant with air new Zealand. Having also worked in the customer service industry, she has an understanding of what makes people happy. Coatesville Lodge is the perfect home to share with guests.


Pippa is the family dog who is now 13 years old. She loves to hang out with the chickens and happy to get a pat from all the guests.
