  • The homestead is in a fantastic location, only 10km from Lake Tekapo

    The homestead is in a fantastic location, only 10km from Lake Tekapo. It was lovely staying in a rural setting, very quiet, secluded and peaceful. The homestead has everything required for a fantastic get-away - warm and cozy, comfy beds and an amazing free standing bath to soak in after a long day of sight-seeing. I would highly recommend Old Sawdon Homestead to anyone wanting to spend some time in the high country.

  • The location on the farm and close to Lake Tekapo are great

    The location on the farm and close to Lake Tekapo are great. It's a lovely old house, well equipped, full of character, beautiful garden, the children loved it. The bedrooms are not heated (one bedroom has a small wall-mounted heater); there are electric under-blankets and thick blankets.
