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.

  • Lovely space but a little bit dark because of the hidden location...

    Lovely space but a little bit dark because of the hidden location and big overhanging trees. Cute though! Thanks so much!

  • This is a very quiet and sheltered little cottage in the woods

    This is a very quiet and sheltered little cottage in the woods. A short drive from Otaki, it offers a private and cosy retreat. It feels like you really are in the woods with sheep and a rooster the only neighbours you are aware of. Very shaded and quiet, and well presented.

  • Was a wonderful little place

    Was a wonderful little place. Was tidy, clean and the place was just gorgeous. It was just far enough away from town to be quiet, but close enough just to get in the car and in a couple of minutes you were in otaki. Would definitely go there again for another stay away.
