Romantic, rustic Shepherds Hut on 850 acre farm in the beautiful Takamatua Valley. Only minutes by car from the historic French village of Akaroa with its many cafes, restaurants,shops and water activities. Walk the hills strewn with native trees and bush, stunning views out to sea, abundant birdlife, waterfall and creeks. The Hut is private yet close to historic farmhouse built in 1898 for the Mora family. The Shepherds hut has been restored with modern comforts, but retaining all the charm of yesteryear.

Out door Bath and shower ( with hot running water) on secluded deck. Breakfast Hamper included. BBQ and Microwave.

  • What a lovely setting

    What a lovely setting. Kathrine has created a little piece of magic at her Sherperds Hut. So peaceful and beautifully decorated with a everything provided. The outside bath is just the icing on the cake. Highly recommend staying there.

  • Stunning place to stay

    Stunning place to stay. In the country but very close to Akaroa. Was peaceful and very relaxing. Outdoor bath was great. Hut was nice and cosy and warm. Beautiful robes were s bonus to. Amazing breakfast with bacon and eggs delicious cereal, fruit, yoghurt and fruit. Biscuits and tea range was a great touch. Owners were great and left us to it but we're welcoming to go and see them if we needed anything. Prefect we retreat. Would definitely come back and recommend to family and friends.
