  • In quiet, tree-lined Chester St East opposite a small park
  • A brand new cottage with the character of the old
  • Beautiful cedar bifolding doors open onto a sunny deck

Entwhistle Cottage has been rebuilt with the same compact proportions of the original working man's cottage but reworked to make the most of the space and light. The kitchen, dining, living are all open plan looking out to the sunny courtyard. The small bathroom is lovely with black and white tiles and some vintage touches. The whole cottage is tastefully furnished with character and kiwiana touches.

We are happy to cater for families with two singles in the second bedroom(that can be made into a king). We also have a toy box, a fenced courtyard and a small park right opposite. Entwhistle Cottage would also be the perfect, romantic spot for a honeymoon stay.

We have free WI-FI and are also able to offer free-range eggs from our own hens when available. There is also tea, coffee and sugar. Parking is free on the street outside the cottage.

Special conditions: The price is for two people. $20 for each extra adult, $15 per child. 2 night minimum. Happy to take a one night booking if I have a one night gap between bookings. There are a few of these available over our summer season already so please inquire! Inquire about long term rates.

  • Cosy, clean and comfortable

    Cosy, clean and comfortable. Very homely with lots of good books to look at. Excellent location, quiet but within easy reach of city.

  • Loved it

    Loved it. Perfect size for the two of us but could also take a couple of kids. well located within walking distance of all the downtown attractions. well provisioned - we cooked often and had no problems what so ever with pots, pans, utensils and the like. Nicely renovated after the earthquake of a few years back. highly recommend.

    Entwhistle is a lovely little house not far from the city center, fully equipped with all we needed. We only stayed two nights and missed most of the pleasure of the outdoor spaces due to a rainy day, but the indoor/outdoor feel provided by the brilliant sliding/folding patio doors would have been delightful on a nicer day.
