Terrace Cottage - a summer or winter romantic getaway, family retreat or skiing holiday base.

Terrace Cottage is a beautifully restored cottage in historic Whitecliffs Valley. This 100 year old former potter's cottage has been updated, with modern amenities and beautiful furnishings and linens. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen, you even have your own coffee machine! A log fire heats the cottage and plenty of firewood is provided. The beautiful gardens give plenty of shelter and privacy with facilities for outdoor dining and relaxation. Terrace Cottage is nestled among rolling hills and farmland, just minutes walk from the Selwyn River's numerous swimming holes and in the midst of excellent biking, walking and golfing opportunities. Jet boating, fishing and horse trekking are all available on your doorstep. Cafes and restaurants are just ten minutes away in Darfield or travel a little further afield to Terrace Downs, Methven, Springfield or Oxford townships. Terrace Cottage is the ideal romantic getaway or family retreat. Our Cottage also offers an excellent base for skiers as Whitecliffs is less than an hour from Mt Hutt and Porters Heights skifields. All this is just 45 minutes from Chch airport. The perfect place for a quiet weekend away, or a longer stay to unwind and enjoy all that the area has to offer. What are you waiting for!

    A relaxed home away from home with everything that we needed both inside and out. Tastefully decorated and so comfortable. Lovely bed-linen. Super outside spaces surrounded by high hedges providing privacy and wind protection.

    The property was beautiful and the cottage well set up. Thoroughly enjoyed our time and would love to stay again. Was a peaceful and lovely break away from city life for a few days. The swimming holes were great and we enjoyed beautiful evening walks. What a special place. Thanks again.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The shower is over the bath. Use hot and cold water taps to get the preferred shower temperature as there is no mixer. Joys of a 100 year old potters cottage!
