Cottage | Little River | #25794
Oakston Cabin is a lovingly restored 1870 Sawmillers Cabin on our property in Western Valley in Little River. Only 45mins from Christchurch but in a different world. It is a simple and clean wee space with log burner, kitchenette, bathroom and long drop toilet with the most peaceful views.
You are welcome to stroll over our farm or take in some of the beautiful nearby walks. For some it is a night away after riding the local rail trail. Or you may want a romantic night or two away, off grid. We provide bicycles and a Tandem for the romantically inclined to ride down to the local cafe and art gallery. The out door bath is always loved, lite the fire underneath, bring it to the temperature you want, then lie back and listen to the stream and watch the stars.
The beautiful Akaroa township is only 30 mins drive away.
Cell phone reception is marginal and there is no power points to charge laptops or phones. But we are happy to help out in an emergency.

This tiny quirky cabin has been lovingly restored and furnished with old-style items. It's literally like stepping back in time to stay here. Secluded and relaxing. Ideal for first or second honeymoon. Be aware that there aren't many places to eat our in Little River so you need to plan ahead. We stayed in February and the hilltop cafe was also shut at 6 pm! The Bath is a great experience. A lovely base to explore the Banks Peninsul
Positive: It is in a beautiful location. The cabin is very well mantained and clean. Bed very confortable. Fire place build the magic for your night. Views are stunning! Peaceful and relaxing. Highly recommended! Negative: No extra candles to replace the ones already outside (they were wet and didn´t work). Solar lights hanging from the roof and toilet light didn´t work during the night. USB solar charger didn´t work. If all these whould have been OK I would have given 5 starts.
