  • Private garden overlooking the City

Canongate Cottage is in central Dunedin, just 10 minutes walk to the Octagon.

Built in the 1860's, this simple yet delightfully charming cottage is unique and cosy thanks to the wood burner. Traditional 'two up & two down', with a kitchen and bathroom in the 'lean-to'.

There are two upstairs bedrooms, one with queen size bed, the other with two king singles.

Please note; bedroom access is via a steep staircase! This makes the cottage unsuitable for children and less mobile people.

A 10 minute walk to the Octagon takes you past the famous Speights Brewery, cafes, bars, restaurants, movie theatres and galleries.

There is a private garden with a view out to the ocean and harbour in the distance.

No off street parking available. Due to its proximity to town parking can be tricky during work hours, from 4pm week days and during the weekend parking shouldn't be a problem.

    Lovely cottage, really comfy and cosy. The stairs were a bit steep but we got used to them.

    We adored staying at the Canongate Cottage. It is in an excellent location, has great views, and the historical photos were a beautiful touch to an already interesting property. If we're ever back in Dunedin we will definitely be booking this property.
