Description

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.

  • A wonderful peaceful find in the countryside, just a short drive from...

    A wonderful peaceful find in the countryside, just a short drive from Wellington. Great for a weekend away - well appointed, quiet and secluded in a lovely country environment, yet only a few kilometers from Otaki town and the attractions of the Kapiti coast. Enjoyed the free range eggs for breakfast. The mozzies are big, so be sure to pack some repellant. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

    Had a wonderful weekend in this unique, character-filled cottage. Immaculate and comfortable accommodation in a great location - we especially loved the cosy open-plan upper level. The owners were great, very helpful and friendly.
