Description

  • artisan built stone house, wooden oiled floors, double glazing
  • swimming holes close by, bush walks begin literally at the back door
  • the feel of a hidden world, yet only 20 minutes from Takaka

The cottage is warm and well appointed, built in carefully selected stone from every river in Golden Bay.

Insect screens allow the sliding windows to be open on hot nights without moths , mosquitos etc swarming in

Bird life abounds, and the ParaPara river ,glimpsed through the trees is 20 steps away.Old gold workings from the 19th century are still visible, and the track up the river follows the water race that provided power for the historic paint factory working in the early days of the colony

5 minutes from marvellous Milnthorpe Park with its bush walks and beach, 10 minutes from the town of Collingwood, and further afield spectacular Wharariki beach and the Westhaven inlet

Or if you're in the mood for perusing arts and crafts, many artisan galleries are nearby, potters, jewellers and glass workers

In winter months from June to August the sun sets early in the valley

There is a good efficient fire, plenty of dry wood and a heater,and with double glazing the cottage is really cosy.

Special conditions: Most suitable for couples, but a day bed in the living room can also be used for another person Smoking outside only No tents quiet enjoyment(no parties etc) . keep to number of guests on booking,

  • Amazing place, wish we stayed longer

    Amazing place, wish we stayed longer. So much to see and do around the place, just did not have enough time. Tips: research on activities around the area and plan your stay and outings. Our 3day stay felt like it was only 1 day. Looking forward to going back. Highly recommend this amazing cottage.
