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. Peel Forest is situated approximately 150kms (1.75 hour drive) south of Christchurch. Minimum stay 2 nights.

    Lovely peaceful location with many great native bush walks nearby. Older bach but very comfortable and warm with a great fire. Very enjoyable stay.

  • This property is in the perfect location

    This property is in the perfect location. It is peaceful and quiet but close to the walks. ITs yard is big enough for kids to play in a safe environment. This is the first time I have had to use the fire and it warmed it up beautifully.

  • Everything was lovely

    Everything was lovely. Nice location and very private. Weather was terrible but house was nice and cosy. The only thing is the water pressure in the shower - it just trickled out.
