Cottage | Otaki | #17341
Come and stay in our Historic Stables. Located at the back of Talisman Nursery in a tranquil setting amongst mature trees.
Built, in the early 1920's with locally made bricks. It was used to house draught horses and equipment, as part of the Mangahao – Haywards power reticulation scheme. The Stables were converted into a beautiful cottage during the late 1980’s with the renovation work being done by a conservation architect.
The Stables sleep up to 3 adults, but is ideal as a nice cosy retreat for a couple. Spend a weekend relaxing and re-energising in our self catering Stables. Enjoy walks in the nearby Otaki Forks, or along the beautiful Kapiti Beaches. Other local attractions include; Otaki’s many outlet stores, local restaurants and cafes, the Otaki Maori Racecourse and Otaki Golf Club.
Alternatively combine a relaxing stay with garden planning. Bring your garden plans and ideas and receive a free consultation with Stephen. View our mature native plants in our arboretum and our wide selection of plants for sale. See our website for a plant list.

We had a lovely couple of days at the stables and although the weather wasn't ideal, we were very comfortable throughout our stay. I highly recommend tthe stables as an ideal weekend retreat.
The Stables is my favourite place to stay in the lower North Island. Beautiful surrounds and a wonderful historic building.
The old brick stables have been thoughtfully refurbished to create a well-appointed getaway for two or three people. Kitchen/dining room with woodburner downstairs, as well as the bathroom and a single bedroom; upstairs is the main living/sleeping space. Great for a couple of nights away from Wellington.
Wonderful place to stay!
Really enjoyed my stay at the Stables, it was warm and cozy with the fireplace, with comfy beds and everything you need for a quiet weekend escape
