Description

Situated among the beautiful surrounds of Peel Forest, this cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple, family or small group. Step off the verandah onto the expansive front lawn of the section, boasting 150 year old kahikateas, totara and matai trees, and enjoy the stunning backdrop of the native podocarp forest. The cottage consists of an open plan lounge and dining room leading out onto the verandah accompanied by a kitchen containing all the necessary appliances. With three bedrooms, the cottage can sleep up to 6 people.

The location possesses an abundance of activities. Immerse yourself in the natural environs by walking one of the many bush tracks or trekking to the top of Mt Peel to experience a view of the Canterbury Plains. For those seeking adventure activities, there’s white water rafting and kayaking on the Rangitata’s rapids, a river also renowned for its world class trout fishing. The Peel Forest Cafe and General Store is located nearby and the town of Geraldine is worth a visit to check out its impressive craft shops, winery and cheese delicatessens, supermarket and chemist - only a 20min drive away.

  • The location of the property was perfect, surrounded by bush and walks

    The location of the property was perfect, surrounded by bush and walks. The property itself didn't have very modern appliances but it kinda felt like being taken back in time and was very homely and cute, and nice to get away with no service or anything!

    We had a great family holiday at Blandswood - it is situated in a very beautiful part of the world. Very peaceful with lovely birdsong to listen to. Plenty of walks to do, we had two children under 5 and they managed Big Tree, Denniston Bush and Ackland falls. Great to escape the busyness of daily life - and not much coverage for your phones if you want to escape!
