This 1890s farm cottage has been extensively renovated for easy living but still retains the charm of the old cottage.

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.

A large Countdown supermarket is located just behind the bus stop (1 minute walk). 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, (actually the rhubarb died) 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 by the sun but also has a wood fire, with firewood supplied, and a heat pump in the main bedroom for those frosty nights.

    We were in two minds to review this little Gem as we were considering keeping it our little secret!!! What a wonderful little cottage. We were very impressed with the quality of accommodation and furnishings you provided as it was very clean and tidy. We will definitely be back as we cant wait to relax in front of that wonderful fire of your's!!!! Our company sends staff all around the country as well and have recommended using Apple Blossom Cottage when we send staff to Dunedin. Thanks Again
