Tranquility Cottage is a decent sized 4 bedroom house featuring a large section set right alongside the Twizel river. The one hectare section features private river frontage, which is perfect for decent social gatherings around the barbeque. The old style cottage can sleep up to 10 adults, including a bunk room that sleeps 5 and adjacent room that sleeps 1 but doesn't have a door between the two.

Please also take into account that there is only one bathroom (shower and toilet in the same room).

Tranquility cottage is pretty rustic but cute. We recommend this house to anyone who prefers being out in the country without being too far away from town. This is a very private property with a farm and river out front, and only 2 neighbours, one on either side.

Dogs welcome, but please clean up after them and note that it is not a secured section at this stage. It does have a good sized secure dog kennel tucked behind the house.

Comes with a TV with Freeview, a DVD player, and you can bring your own HDMI cable to plug your computer in. There is some decent speakers with an AUX cable so you can plug your phone or iPod in to play music.

    This Property is really 'old school' but comfortable and warm in a very peaceful location and gorgeous views of the Alps. Lovely to sit in sun and listen to sound of the wee river at the bottom of the property. Great shower. And so lovely to be able to bring the family dog
