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 Café & 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.

  • Lovely quite rural spot surrounded by beautiful native Bush

    Lovely quite rural spot surrounded by beautiful native Bush. House is rustic especially the kitchen. Comfortable but old furnishings heaters nice big fire place but no fire guard. No bbq or cloth washing facilities.

    Owner/manager responds:

    If this guest had Volunteered more information about themselves we would have told them that the bach wasn't suitable (as we have done for others). As you read the guest comments it comes across and sounds like this guest enjoys a Grizzle, we suggest people read what other guests have said for a fairer opinion.

    Lovely cosy property hidden in a wonderful spot. Was excellent for our race in the Spring Challenge and the fire was brilliant.

  • This is a great little kiwi bach hidden away in the bush

    This is a great little kiwi bach hidden away in the bush. It had everything I needed to make my stay there very comfortable. The logfire did a wonderful job and kept us very cosy. The bush walks in the area have the most amazing totara, matai and beech trees, we loved them all.
