We loved stay at Sawdon station in the cottage. It was cosy, warm, comfortable and quirky with a good kitchen for cooking - the fire was a bonus on a slightly chilly morning :-) Very quiet peaceful place (even with the sheep herding!) We would thoroughly recommend as a chilled out place to stay from the business of Tekapo (within a 5 minute drive so still really close to town).
