New two-storey crib built on edge of Naseby Forest. Mountain biking and forest walks on doorstep. 5 minute walk into historic Naseby village, with two pubs, cafe and dairy, mining relics, museum, curling, ice-skating and luge. Located on quiet street, good for kids to play in area, trails lead through forest to water race, and up to historic cemetery. In the wider area, Ranfurly is a 10minute drive to more cafes, rural art deco architecture, the rail trail and tractor museum! Also a supermarket there and pub. Driving the other direction, its a 20min to Danseys' Pass historic hotel, great food and drink, then further to Dansey's Pass summit and amazing views.

Special conditions:

Our crib is not on the grid. It DOES have electricity though! It has a photovoltaic system, that provides 240V for lights, stereo etc. We ask people to be careful with conserving power. There is no TV. Fridge, stove and hot water (plentiful) are all gas-powered. The crib is heated by an amazing log-burner that will have you stripping off layers in no time - entirely double-glazed and super-insulated, the place is really cosy all year round, even with a foot of snow outside.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

  • A great wee house that suited our family

    A great wee house that suited our family. Not far to the middle of town, just a short drive or few minutes walk.

  • 'The Firs' is a modern, comfortable, warm, well-appointed property

    'The Firs' is a modern, comfortable, warm, well-appointed property. Being 'off the grid' was fine; if you can light a gas BBQ you can light the gas fridge equally easily. Waking to snow on the first morning gave us an opportunity to keep the log-burner going all day while we visited Dansey's Pass Hotel. For a short-break location Naseby is great, with lots to do, and 'The Firs' is an excellent place to use as a base. We would stay there again without hesitation.
