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. You can book pony rides for young riders at Greenfields Equestrian Centre. 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. 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, movies and bikes are are available free of charge 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 - Horse of the Year riders book now! 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.
