This rustic little 1800's cottage is set on an 1800 acre sheep & beef station, 25mins east of Martinborough and only 16km from the Pahaoa Coast. It has a lawn tennis court and great sandpit for the children. Guests are welcome to enjoy a walk on the farm, where there are animals to feed especially around springtime. The river is nice and close complete with a lovely swimming hole. There is also seasonal fruit available, and our water is sourced from a natural spring.

We also offer guided hunts for both wild pigs and deer. Please enquire for more details.

We also have Aotea Homestead which sleeps 11. Please see our other listing.

  • Lovely little cottage in a beautiful location

    Lovely little cottage in a beautiful location. The owners are extremely friendly, while respecting privacy. The cottage is surrounded by farmland and rolling hills. A perfect weekend get-away, with plenty of opportunities for tramping, cycling and coast lines to explore within easy reach.

  • We had a lovely time

    We had a lovely time. Our hosts were very friendly, lots of space to go for walks and the kids loved feeding the greedy cow apples and fetching freshly laid eggs. The cottage is neat and well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
