Comfortable, cosy cottage with spectacular night sky views
We are a Semi Retired couple enjoying living in the this quiet village. We originally came from Christchurch and have been living here in Mt Somers since 2014 permanently. We have owned the property since 90's and used it as a holiday home.
Why Leonie_and_Peter_Austin chose Mount Somers
We came to stay in the Domain at Mt Somers and on an evening walk found a for sale sign on the empty section. We loved the area so much and decided to purchase 2 of the empty sections. From then on it was landscaping and planting on every holiday. This is a beautiful part of the country and the night sky on a clear night is spectacular.
What makes this Cottage unique
Mt Somers walkway is on the doorstep, with much more early history up the gorge.

Somers Holiday Cottage is located in a quiet peaceful little village nestled at the foot of the southern alps. With wonderful mountain views and spectacular night sky. We are the gate way to the high country where part of The Lord Of The Rings was filmed. Lakes Heron, Camp and Clearwater a short distance drive away from the village for fishing, and other water sports. With tramping, skiing, fishing and many historic buildings basically on the doorstep there is plenty of activities for everyone. We also have 2 restaurants in the village and another 8 mins drive away in Mayfield with both bistro and fine dining options. The village has a small local store that has basic needs however Methven and Ashburton are 30 mins drive away for more shopping and cafes etc.
