Cottage | Featherston | #11249
Originally accommodation for the grooms, this dwelling is part of the historic listed stable building at Longwood. It has a sitting room with open fire and a separate dining room. It opens onto a large courtyard. Compact, but surprisingly roomy, the decor is colonial NZ with touches of horse brass befitting its position in the stable block. Polished wooden floors and antique kelims add to the ambience.
Perfect for families, children love the upstairs loft reached by a steep ladder (adults please note) and the antique bunk beds. Alternatively it is a charming rustic cottage for a couple.

Location was great, handy to the wedding we attended. The sun was shining but the interior was cold and dark, which I guess is typical of an old brick building. Beds were comfy. Access to the loft bedroom was tricky up a steep ladder - I wouldn't put small children up there. However, Marguerite did warn us about the access.
The location is spectacular and very convenient to Featherston and the Wairarapa. The sun setting over the fields around the cottage and the rustic charm of the place was great. The bathroom is a tight squeeze and the shower not great. The loft is not suitable for children and could do with an extra rail or support for increased safety. TV only takes dvds but not a biggie.
