Central to Greytown and set at the back of our section surrounded by fruit trees, ornamental trees, shrubs and flowers, Shy cottage is an original1880's cottage full of character with quality furnishings and artwork; insulated and warmed in the cold weather by a wood burner and on sunny days by sun.

We live on site in the front cottage with our dog and cat, both are friendly but not allowed in the cottage. Also on the section is Shy Apartment, which also sleeps 2 so both could be booked if there are 4 of your needing accommodation.The grounds include a pond and the pets are not used to children therefore we do not take children.

A fantastic location to explore what is on offer in Greytown, food, clothing, antiques and niknaks in abundance or across the Wairarapa, as Greytown is very central to all Wairarapa has to offer, beaches, wineries,olive groves, tramping, shopping and general relaxation.

What could be better than staying in a romantic cottage and spending your days exploring and feasting!

Check in is after 2.30 pm and please leave by 11 am, thanks.

  • I personally found the bed too hard for my body

    I personally found the bed too hard for my body. All in all, this is a very pleasant wee cottage with a very homely feel. The bath is devine as is the wee fire. I was just what o needed for a rest, relax & recharge.

    A great spot on the main road shops, but back just enough from the road to miss the traffic noise. A nicely restored cottage with a great fire place and atmosphere.
