Cottage | Wellington City | #32551
Self-contained affordable cottage in rural settings Spacious for 2, still enough space for 4 adults, extra kids ok. Freeview TV + Free Wi-Fi. Pine forest and native bush for kids to play with plenty of space to explore.
Incredibly private, surrounded by pine forest. 100% rural, yet only 15 minutes drive from Wellington CBD.
Quite warm now with heat pump, log burner and oil heater so you'll be cosy even on coldest days.
Please note this is rural and somehow quirky bach, not a hotel. If you prefer humming city and 4+ star accommodation you might enjoy more staying in one of Wellington hotels. This is reasonably priced bach for people who like outdoors and rural. No public transport nearby (closest bus stop 4km walk over hills) and the nearest shop is about 15km return trip. The access road from the highway (last 5-8minutes) is windy uphill but quite scenic after you pass the quarry.
Air bed, porta cot, spare mattresses and more extras available on request (usually free), just ask.

Is as stated in the information, rural, and needs some upkeep, never did figure out how to get the TV to work. The bed was comfortable, the heaters worked fine and you definitely get your driving skills tuned up driving in and out.
Not the flashiest of places but for the price, good value. I actually enjoyed staying there, it was peaceful, quiet and warm. Shower not the greatest and the chimney needs sweeping as the fire smokes the room out. But these are just little things. I did enjoy our stay. I would describe the place as quirky in a lovable way
