Description

This smart 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 and 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.

    Absolutely blissful. If you're looking for traffic noise and the bustle of the city while you're on holiday then dont consider this place. Loved it so much last year that we bought a couple of extras with us this year and they loved it as much as we did.

  • Property was located further away than we thought

    Property was located further away than we thought. The couch bed was incredibly hard, I think we were awake more than we slept. The queen bed rolled into the middle, so not a lot of sleep was had there either. It’s a cute cottage, but a bit awkward if you were to stay there during the day with people turning up to feed horses and use the Arena the other side of the cottage. Was ok for us as we were only there to sleep. I don’t think we would stay again.

    Owner/manager responds:

    First negative response we have ever had on the queen bed so will check that out. Total opposite from others and our current long stay guests feedback.. The location is though well qualified. Says on the webisie ' Self contained farm - stay cottage, rural location'. It is also clearly stated throughout the website that the cottage is on a equestrian property and we say horses will be coming and going using the arena. Guests left property in a clean and tidy state. Just wasn't for this family.
