Have a long weekend, in front of the fire, watching movies and reading books, or skating, tubing and hot pools with the kids. Summer months enjoy some extra days walking, cycling, or just spending time with family.

The Sawdon Station Allanvilla Farm Cottage is a family friendly, rural hideaway. It is close to ski fields and the Lake Tekapo township. The cosy cottage offers spectacular views out over the farm and to the southern alps. A high country experience.

Pet sheep, hens, and dogs are available for feeding and/or patting. Whether you are after a relaxing get away or fun filled adventure, we would love to accommodate you.

The cosy cottage stays warm and cosy in winter with the great log fire and is a sun trap in summer.

We have a maximum of 4 adults for this cottage. Full tea, coffee and sugar supplied, but no milk. Free Wi-Fi connection - Just need to bring your clothing, and food.

We have thousands of hectares to let your kids run wild on and are only too happy to show you round.

Close to Lake Tekapo, with its excellent hot pools, the new Trippo water slide in the summer, skating in winter, the night sky, the lake for swimming, boat cruising, and fishing. Walking to the top of Mt John for the best café in the world, and the best Japanese restaurant in the country! In the winter, two ski fields one (Roundhill) 30 minutes from the cottage, and the other (Mt Dobson) 40 minutes.

Special conditions: Smoking outside only. Single bed in second bedroom is for a child only. Adult welcome to sleep but a comment made was they found uncomfortable. The cottage is located on a working high country farm so caution is to be taken as there are many hazards. One night bookings can be requested, but there is a $40 cleaning surcharge payable. If you decide to leave before the end of your stay within a long public weekend or a peak period there is no refund of nights accommodation.

    Classic Kiwi Bach which was a real experience for us hailing from Singapore. The stars were amazing and clear at night and we had an excellent tour by her daughter Sarah of the working farms. It was a real eye-opener for us urban folks! Cottage itself was well-maintained and clean. Would recommend to everyone!
