Terrace Cottage - a summer or winter romantic getaway, family retreat or skiing holiday base.

Terrace Cottage is a beautifully restored cottage in historic Whitecliffs Valley. This 100 year old former potter's cottage has been updated, with modern amenities and beautiful furnishings and linens. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen, you even have your own coffee machine! A log fire heats the cottage and plenty of firewood is provided. The beautiful gardens give plenty of shelter and privacy with facilities for outdoor dining and relaxation. Terrace Cottage is nestled among rolling hills and farmland, just minutes walk from the Selwyn River's numerous swimming holes and in the midst of excellent biking, walking and golfing opportunities. Jet boating, fishing and horse trekking are all available on your doorstep. Cafes and restaurants are just ten minutes away in Darfield or travel a little further afield to Terrace Downs, Methven, Springfield or Oxford townships. Terrace Cottage is the ideal romantic getaway or family retreat. Our Cottage also offers an excellent base for skiers as Whitecliffs is less than an hour from Mt Hutt and Porters Heights skifields. All this is just 45 minutes from Chch airport. The perfect place for a quiet weekend away, or a longer stay to unwind and enjoy all that the area has to offer. What are you waiting for!

  • A gorgeous spot (I almost don’t want to share the secret)

    A gorgeous spot (I almost don’t want to share the secret). Rosemary went above and beyond turning on a heater to warm the place through before we arrived, a setting up a cosy and welcoming portacot for our daughter. The furnishings made the place feel extra special, especially the linens and comfy couch by the fire:) A perfect weekend getaway spot from Christchurch (with the bonus of a late 3pm checkout). We’ll be back!!

  • I cannot recommend dreamy Terrace Cottage highly enough

    I cannot recommend dreamy Terrace Cottage highly enough. Sitting in the lounge looking out the window was like something out a Jane Austin novel. I kept expecting Mr Darcy to dismount and walk through the gate! We were amazed at how snug the cottage was. The heat from the woodburner pushed through the whole cottage. We were there to celebrate a 60th birthday and it could not have been a more memorable and special weekend so thank you for the memory. We can't wait to get back for the ski season.
