Description

Come and stay in our Historic Stables. Located at the back of Talisman Nursery in a tranquil setting amongst mature trees.

Built, in the early 1920's with locally made bricks. It was used to house draught horses and equipment, as part of the Mangahao – Haywards power reticulation scheme. The Stables were converted into a beautiful cottage during the late 1980’s with the renovation work being done by a conservation architect.

The Stables sleep up to 3 adults, but is ideal as a nice cosy retreat for a couple. Spend a weekend relaxing and re-energising in our self catering Stables. Enjoy walks in the nearby Otaki Forks, or along the beautiful Kapiti Beaches. Other local attractions include; Otaki’s many outlet stores, local restaurants and cafes, the Otaki Maori Racecourse and Otaki Golf Club.

Alternatively combine a relaxing stay with garden planning. Bring your garden plans and ideas and receive a free consultation with Stephen. View our mature native plants in our arboretum and our wide selection of plants for sale. See our website for a plant list.

  • Charming and set in a picturesque and idyllic spot

    Charming and set in a picturesque and idyllic spot. Cute and well appointed. Such a great place to get away from it all. Lovely garden surrounding that must be magical when everything is in bloom. We enjoyed our stay so very very much.

    Everything you need and a really picturesque location. We also enjoyed how pretty the stables was with the brickwork and views out to the trees.

    Wonderful location for getting away from things, the property is fantastic, felt like we'd gone back in time (but with all the modern luxuries!). Beautifully set up, nice and warm - we absolutely loved it!
