This great old woolshed is now a great place to stay when visiting the South Coast of Wairarapa!

With plenty of open space to relax - inside and out, and a fireplace to keep you cozy on cooler nights, this woolshed still has all the charm from its 'working' days. The woolshed has all the basic amenities you need for a weekend away - including all kitchen equipment and crockery.

An open plan environment that comfortably sleeps 9 this is the ideal stop for those venturing the Rimutaka Cycle Trail or just wanting a weekend away from it all! This peaceful and beautiful environment is a great family getaway location.

Take a walk (or moutainbike ride) on the block of land around the woolshed and enjoy all that the New Zealand landscape has to offer - great views, native forest, beech forest, pine forest, rolling paddocks and stunning birdlife.

We also offer an awesome bike hire experience - fat tyre electric bikes! These bikes are great for exploring the area - Pounui Wetlands, Onoke Spit, Ocean Beach. These bikes are designed for enjoying the great outdoors.

The woolshed is located 6kms from the majestic South Coast: Ocean Beach.

  • Lovely location with views over water and mountains

    Lovely location with views over water and mountains. Effort has been put into developing tracks for mountain bikes and walkers through regenerating beech/kanuka forest and open paddock. House well equipped and comfortable. Open plan living. Fat tyre e-bikes were great fun, easy for non MTB riders to manage with good rides from the door.
