  • 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.

  • What a great cottage

    What a great cottage. So cosy and handy to the CBD but still with bird song during the day. Very good facilities and well looked after by the caring owners (manager). Highly recommend.

Quiet, warm, well appointed, city views, nice short walk down to town...cosy to come home to. Thoughtfully designed...Completely charming.

    Fantastic location and adorable wee house! Though some butter would have been nice, & not such a fan of the fake bubbles but the chocolate was a nice touch. Thanks! We loved our stay (fire works brilliantly) & thoroughly recommend this bach to anyone looking for quality, charm & character in their accomodation!
