The property is in the heart of old Mosgiel, 5 minutes walk from numerous food outlets, supermarkets, cafes, second hand shopping and specialty stores.

Enjoy all the facilities that Mosgiel and the Taieri plains have to offer. Swimming pool, Velodrome, Bowling Green, mountain and road cycling, great playground, the Taieri river, council dog park, sports fields a plenty and three gold courses on the outskirts of the town.

Countdown's newest supermarket is currently under construction behind the bus stop and will be super convenient for guests shopping needs. (Shopping trolley and reusable carry bags supplied for guests use).

Go further afield and explore the Taieri and beyond from this welcoming base. 10 minutes to Outram, 15 minutes down the road to Lake Waihola or Brighton Beach.

The section is fully fenced, child and dog friendly with edible garden at your disposal. Berries, vegies, rhubarb, beans, apples in season. The garden is still being developed but is designed to feed bees and humans alike.

The house itself is warm and cosy, usually heated but the sun but also has a wood fire, with firewood supplied, and a heat pump in the main bedroom for those frosty nights.

The third bedroom is a sleepout a few metres from the main house. It contains a double bed and small fridge with tea making facilities. (No plumbing)

  • What a find! Such a homely and superbly located property

    What a find! Such a homely and superbly located property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the attention to detail and thoughtfulness for guests was fabulous. We would stay again in a heartbeat. The children (under 4) enjoyed the garden and the house. We appreciated the wifi and Bluetooth speaker. The recycling and composting just made us feel at home. Loved the decor. Just brilliant. Great start to our family holiday.

    Apple Blossom Cottage is in a good location one block from the supermarket and close to the centre of Mosgiel. We were there for a bowling tournament which was only three blocks away. Cosy cottage which we all found comfortable and clean. Would certainly recommend this property and would be good for families.

    Would happily stay here again, weather wet when staying here so being able to light the fire was good and it heated the house. Plenty of crockery and cutlery and also games to play if wanting something to do. Would not be keen on staying in the sleepout on my own though. Will definitely recommend to friends.
