Enjoy the open spaces, the rural aspects and a charming and comfortable, yet spacious well appointed studio. Semi attached on 1/2 an acre, Bridget and her 3 labradors welcome you. Hawkshead is surrounded by grazing land and a 2minute walk across the farmland to the Makarora River. Wake to a mountain view all around and the early morning sun. You have your own private entrance and outdoor seating area. The ‘hawkshead’ culture is a very relaxed one. Ideally located 1 hour from the West Coast at the head of Lake Wanaka makes perfect for an overnight stay. There is so much on offer in this valley from hiking, jet boating to scenic flights or simply just to relax , listen to the birds, read book under the shady trees.

A perfect attached bungalow with a Kitchenette and full size bathroom complete with private deck. Really everything you could hope for considering the stunning views of the valley. Stream for fly-fishing is minutes walk from the house and the home is located just off the main road on the way to Wanaka and Queenstown. It was the absolute ideal place for us to rest and continue our travels in the morning. Bridget was an amazing host as well. We love you Bridget!
Hawkshead has a fantastic view of the valley. Bridget was very hospitable and we had fun visiting with her and her dogs. This real Bridget Jones seems to have a life far more interesting than the fictional Bridget Jones. This was one of our favorite baches in our two-month NZ adventure.
