Paddy's Cottage is situated 12km south of Alexandra. It is nestled at the base of the Old Man Range in a rural setting with private courtyard and rambling garden.

Just relax or take a short walk to see the wonderfull craftmanship and setting of well known Mitchells cottage. Trek or 4WD to the sumit of the Old Man Range exploring on the way up. There are spectacular views, native alpines and not to forget the mighty Obelisk Rock.

Dine at the local Speargrass Inn cafe. (closed for some winter months - check their website)

You can explore all of Central Otago from this base with Wanaka, Queenstown and Naseby just over an hour away.

What about a trip to the Nevis Valley or Thompsons Gorge with more gold mining history. And then there is Ophir and St Bathans.

  • Such an awesome little cottage and garden and location

    Such an awesome little cottage and garden and location. An unexpected cold snap left a dumping of snow on the hills at the back of Paddy's which was such a treat! We loved being at Paddy's. It was comfortable and clean and toasty warm with the wood burner, and the water pressure from the shower was awesome!

  • Paddy's cottage was idyllic, like stepping back in time

    Paddy's cottage was idyllic, like stepping back in time. A beautifully preserved dwelling in a wilderness setting of cottage garden flowers. Gorgeous!
