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.

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.

Meals can be purchased at the club on most Friday nights and all are welcome. There are also tennis courts at the golf club.
