This brand new renovation is light clean and family friendly. Ideally suited to couples and families with 1 queen size bed in the master bedroom, a large sofa/queen bed in the lounge and up to 4 child-size beds in a separate childrens room. A unique architecturally designed conversion of the original cowshed, the Herringbone Cottage offers a peaceful farm setting where you can choose to simply rest and relax, or if you feel energetic there are trails for walking and biking nearby. We offer pony rides for young riders (must be booked/paid in advance please). The cottage is light, warm and sunny with a free standing wood fire for the colder months. The living area opens onto a concrete yard with views over tranquil green paddocks and grazing horses. Gas BBQ & bikes provided. The interior decor of the cottage is reminiscent of the '50s and farming with blue and white china, decorative enamel ware and old fashioned storage containers. Books, over 100 DVD movies and two bikes are are available free to guests during their stay. For day trippers its an easy drive to Wellington, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Porirua and the Wairarapa. Silverstream Village is just 7kms down Blue Mountains road with an excellent shopping centre, medical services and train station. Responsible pet owners are welcome to bring family pets and we specialise in offering travelling horse owners with clean safe facilities, fenced floodlit arena, plenty of room to park and the ability to wash floats and trucks. The grazing is horse safe. The cottage is ideal for couples and families, not for large groups of adults. Children must be supervised at all times. We offer discounts to longer bookings and can help with pet sitting and home made meals and baking with advance notice. The cottage is a charming comfortable venue in a unique setting. We look forward to welcoming you to the Herringbone Cottage! Refer to or Facebook page - The Herringbone Cottage for more details and photos.

Special conditions: No smoking allowed anywhere on the property, WIFI coverage is patchy, this is beyond our control. Pets must be discussed in advance, please bring clean pet bedding for your animals. There are no stallion facilities at Greenfields however Trentham Race Course is close and offers full facilities.

  • The cottage is an interesting conversion, built with care, well set up,...

    The cottage is an interesting conversion, built with care, well set up, comfortable and warm. It is quiet and peaceful away from the city, yet the city is easily reached by car. Would be great if travelling with younger children.

    Clean and tidy with a great fire! No cellphone coverage for us - 2 degrees customers - not sure if there is for any other telco coverage. Very windy road to get to property.

  • The cottage was very cute, and presented nice

    The cottage was very cute, and presented nice. It's a little way off the beaten track, which we weren't aware off (but we should of done more research). We had terrible weather which made us pretty cramped up, but luckily they had a very big DVD supply. It was a very small space with a family of 6.

    My clients, appearing on the BBC programme Wanted Down Under stayed here and had an amazing time. The Bolands are warm hosts who made their stay a real pleasure. The cottage is lovely, and the setting is a perfect rural retreat.
