Situated among the beautiful surrounds of Peel Forest, this cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple, family or small group.

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.

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.

We realise people are entitled to an opinion but we are surprised at the words "quite basic", it suggests the bach has an outside toilet, cooking on stones, showering under a tree. As for the tariff, I would have presumed you checked the other local accommodation and they all start from $140+ per night for 2 people. We think $100 per night for up to 4 people is reasonable and have been told (by guests) it is. We suggest you look at other guest comments for a fairer opinion.
