  • 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.

  • Great location close to the city but still off the main roads

    Great location close to the city but still off the main roads. The cottage was warm and light and felt very welcoming. It had everything we needed for a great family break.

  • Thank you for the use of Entwhistle cottage over the weekend

    Thank you for the use of Entwhistle cottage over the weekend. It is a great spot. The whole family had a great time despite the weather! Being so close to the city, and to Margaret Mahy park for the kids, was a real bonus.
