  • Get away from the noise of the city in our self contained three room country bach.
  • Minutes from Belmont Regional Park or for the less adventurous enjoy wandering our bush walks
  • Ten minutes from Lower Hutt or twenty minutes from Wellington

Just a short drive from Lower Hutt, Serenity Valley offers a peaceful escape from the bustle of the city. Nestled in our own valley within a valley, leave the world behind and enjoy the sounds of the country and the babbling of the stream.

The bach has its own parking and is fully self contained but the friendly owners are just down the drive and happy to help out with local information.

You are welcome to wander the grounds as well as enjoy the Belmont Regional Park which is just a ten minute stroll away.

The cottage has a heat pump to keep it cosy in winter but as we are an eco-minded property we ask that you use nature's air conditioner (open a window) to cool it during summer. If you really wish to use the cooling function of the heatpump this can be purchased as an optional extra.

Kitchenette has cold water only but shower has a plentiful supply of hot water! Kitchenette has kettle/toaster/fridge/microwave/hob/sink. No cellphone coverage. TV has netflix only no freeview. Landline use for local calls available on request.

Special conditions: Dogs allowed but must be able to interact with farm animals including free range chickens or be kept on a leash if not.

  • This is a great kiwi batch

    This is a great kiwi batch. The bathroom is excellent with a great shower. The main bed is superbly comfortable. The kitchen is very small with only a single cook top and microwave. If you don't want too cook up a banquet it's perfectly fine. The stream babbling below is delightful and the bush setting so very relaxing. The free range hens are friendly and you can buy their eggs. Great value for the price. It enabled us to stay four comfortable nights .

  • Our new family favourite place to stay in Wellington

    Our new family favourite place to stay in Wellington. Beautiful property with native bush, a trickling stream and friendly chickens and hosts. A lovely place for a family getaway. Petone train station 10 minutes away to get into town easily. Cottage was basic but comfortable and great for kids. Highly recommend purchasing delicious fresh eggs from the hosts for breakfast. The roosters wake up early!

    A gorgeous wee place to stay, ideal for a romantic get away or a place to take the kids for a country experience. Loved the chickens coming to meet ne. Cracked me up when they followed me inside. The cottage was very clean and tidy
