Description

  • This delightfully renovated Historic Railway Cottage has a thoughtful balance of old and new.
  • Comfortable, cosy, totally insulated, with a very efficient log burning fire and endless hot water.
  • The perfect location for all activities in the Central Plateau area.

A beautifully refurbished warm and cosy original Railway cottage in the quaint village of National Park, the Gateway to the Central Plateau area and the dual World Heritage listed Tongariro National Park.

This has been a family holiday home for thirty years, but now we want to share it with you, so you too, can enjoy the multitude of exciting adventures this stunning part of our country has to offer.

In the well-appointed beautifully sunny, north facing kitchen, you will find everything at your fingertips. We've purposely left out the draws and cupboards so you can see where everything is at a glance and there's a flash new stove with gas hobs.

The cosy, comfortable lounge area is open to the kitchen and dining area.

There are two bedrooms with queen beds and a large bunk room for the kids (2 pairs of bunk beds) which have been custom made, so plenty of head room for adults to sit and read. All the beds have electric blankets. There's heated towel rails in each of the bedrooms and a shower that NEVER runs out of hot water.

Duvets and pillows are provided. All other linen (including snuggly flannette sheets) is available on request and at an extra charge per person for the duration of your stay.

There's two drying racks especially designed for drying footwear i.e. ski/board boots and other footwear, gloves hats etc. Lockable shed for skis, plenty of off street parking (4+ cars),attractive lawn and garden areas with a large lawn area at the back of the house where children can play safely.

A two minute walk to the lovely Station Cafe. Other cafes and pubs are an easy walk. Walk the perimeter of the village in 25 minutes and enjoy the bright starry nights. Our skies are so clear here.

Four hours from Auckland and a little more from Wellington.

Don't forget to check out D.O.C.'s amazing Summer Time Programme. They provide a range of extremely interesting guided one day walks and excursions. There's something for all the family.

    It has been a privilege stay in this cosy , light and bright railway cottage. A place that you cannot help but be relaxed in, and a wonderful place to have as a base for autumnal hiking and biking around the Central Plateau area. We were blessed with stunning days and to be able enjoy coffee on the deck and see the Mountains in the distance beyond the delightful garden was a real treat.We fully intend to return.

  • Beautifully renovated home

    Beautifully renovated home. Living areas and bedrooms (even the bunk room) are spacious and comfortable, and the wood fire was fantastic after a bit of a wet and windy Tongariro Crossing. Would love to stay again.
