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.

    This is a wonderful, classic bach - practically in the bush! It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed (Mother's Day girls getaway - our mother and four grown daughters). The fire warmed the whole house in minutes and there was plenty of wood. The little kitchen is very cute and has all the utensils and equipment you might need for whipping up a meal. The 3 stars is a hotel|motel rating - 5 stars for the experience. We have re-booked for next year!
