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.

  • Loved the set up in the house, plenty of room and warm...

    Loved the set up in the house, plenty of room and warm with the excellent fire. All instructions at the house were detailed and everything worked as it should. Lovely quiet spot in NP.

  • This was one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in

    This was one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in. We loved everything about it and it was perfectly equipped for a short or longer stay. We will definitely use it again.

  • Lovely house in great location with everything we needed

    Lovely house in great location with everything we needed. We went with friends to ride the Fisher Track that starts just over the railway line. Our friends loved the house too and we will hopefully be visiting again in the future.

  • The house is very nicely set up with everything I needed for...

    The house is very nicely set up with everything I needed for a quiet few days away. The fire cranked and warmed the place up well. The electric shower is pretty clever and the rooms were very comfortable. Many thanks, and looking forward to the next trip already.
