Fabulous 1940's Kiwiana Cottage, set on a section with its own forest leading to Dogstream Reserve and forest. An easy flat 2 min walk to Thermal hot pools and shops, all just one block away. Surrounded by native bird song, you'll feel relaxed the minute you walk through the door.

Very private sunny section with two outside dining areas, and a great spot for when it gets too hot. The two living areas can be divided off to allow separate spaces. Wonderful views over forest reserve, large wonderland of mature trees for the children to make huts and run free . Access to 'Dog Stream Reserve' and Forest cycle and walking tracks from the bottom of the garden.

Our holiday bach is on one of the most picturesque original streets in Hanmer. It is possible to pull up outside and not get back in your car until you drive home again. Single garage to store your mountain bikes in. The kitchen is original and has all you require to get creative in the kitchen.

Offering many sleeping and living options, all day sun or shade, whether you are a large family or a couple you will feel quite at home. This truly is a little paradise in the heart of Hanmer.

Full Supermarket in the village. Great award winning restaurants to pick from.

  • We loved our stay at La Foret

    We loved our stay at La Foret. The property was very well equipped and cosy with the log burner. Just a few minutes to walk to town, but still quiet and peaceful. The hosts were very helpful - thank you Erin and Rhys!
