  • Fantastic Bach

    Fantastic Bach. Cosy, clean, really handy for all that Twizel has to offer. A fantastic large garden, neat personal touches and great experience for all from wifi requiring teenagers to fresh-air desiring dogs!

  • We absolutely loved this Bach

    We absolutely loved this Bach. It was spotless, comfortable and cosy. Had everything we needed, and just a minutes walk to the village shops. It was a great property to take our dog to as it is fully fenced and has a great outdoor area. We loved Twizel and will come back again, hopefully staying at the High Country Cottage! Thank you Val & Wayne.
