Grandads Cottage is located 40 minutes from Masterton and 2 hours from Wellington on a working farm.

The cottage is situated on an elevated sight over looking farmland and the Pacific Ocean that is only 800 meters away.

Sheltered and quiet with an almost private beach you can swim, surf -cast or even pick up the odd crayfish or paua between the rocks.

Safe swimming for the younger ones in the estuary and beach walking are just some of the activities you can enjoy while staying at Grandads Cottage.

There is plenty of room for the children to play a game of cricket or pitch a tent.

On a cloudless night the stars are amazing. With no light pollution stars, satellites and the odd shooting star can be seen.

Riversdale Beach Resort is 10-12 minutes away with golf course surf club and general store.

The Riversdale Beach general store has takeaways, great coffee and anything you may have forgotten. The store also has an off licence but note no petrol.

Riversdale Beach Golf course is a challenging 9 hole course that has seen the odd grown man cry. Clubs can be hired on request and other than the summer holidays no booking times are required. Meals can be purchased at the club on most Friday nights and all are welcome. There are also tennis courts at the golf club.

Grandads cottage consists of three bedrooms, two of which have queen beds and one with two singles. There is an additional fold out bed in the lounge. Cot and High chair are also provided.

  • Nice, quiet cottage

    Nice, quiet cottage. The beach seems more for walking than swimming.

  • Private cottage with view

    Private cottage with view. Clean house with all needed amenities. Fascinating beach area geologically with a variety of semi-precious minerals/rocks on the beach.
