Lovely old world-style cottage, set in a beautiful rural surrounding. Only a short 10 minute drive to Riversdale beach, which is patrolled in summer.

Private garden and patio.

The cottage is set at the end of a no exit road, so the only noise you will hear is birdsong. Tui and kereru frequently enjoy the garden.

Great walks and fishing river nearby. You can get your daily coffee fix at the local shop in Riversdale, and if you don't fancy doing the cooking, they have great pizza and fish and chips for you to enjoy.

The house has 3 bedrooms. The main bedroom has a queen size bed. The second bedroom has a daybed which pulls out to a comfortable double size bed. On request we can provide a portacot and/or a single bed which can be placed in a small side room leading off the second bedroom (bedroom 3 in pictures).

We don't charge for babies under 12 months.

Special conditions: Smoking outside only. Please enquire about pets, we are happy to discuss their stay. Portacot and highchair available on request.

    A great place to stay! The cottage was tastefully decorated and very clean and comfortable. The location was brilliant - quiet and rural with a 10 minute drive to stunning Riversdale beach. We enjoyed eating breakfast in the sunshine at the picnic table, and then having a BBQ in the sunshine on the lawn. The bedrooms are all in close proximity to each other, but fine for a family. A wonderful weekend!

    Loved this cottage!!! Plenty of room (we are a family of 5 with 2 of the kids now teens). The pics don't really do justice on just how much space there is in this cottage. Very clean, well set up and everything there you need to just arrive & relax. Cottage is very charming & a very peaceful location with only a 10min drive to Riversdale beach. Definitely recommend.

  • Good value for money

    Good value for money. Ideal for a quiet rural getaway. The cottage is peaceful and relaxing, with a lovely master bedroom, separate dining and well equipped kitchen. The lounge is a charming space to spend quiet or family time, with sheep and cows close by, and surrounded by birdsong. Not too far from Riversdale Beach, with tennis, golf, excellent coffee and fish and chips. Best for families rather than groups as second bedroom has no independent exit, and 3rd bedroom is very small.

    The Cottage is delightful! Spacious, cosy, warm, quiet, peaceful, and well equipped. 10 mins drive to Riversdale beach, 40 mins to Masterton, 30 mins to Castlepoint. Highly recommend it for a quiet getaway. Just make sure to bring all the food you need - the little store in Riversdale sells basics only (nothing fresh), plus fish n chips :) Thank you Annelore & Family for a great stay.
