This is the place to stay if you are starting or finishing the rail bike trail. Everything has been provided. The beds are great, the ambiance in the yesteryear setting and of course the fireplace. The latter kept us very warm throughout the day and night.

When can I move in?! What an amazing place! Lovely peaceful surroundings, warm and cosy inside with super comfy beds - perfect after cycling! To top it off, Anna and Bevan had left a great selection for breakfast to make the trip feel like a home away from home. Highly recommend this place!

This is a gorgeous country stone cottage with beautiful views of the Taeiri Valley surrounded by the awesome Rock and Pillar Range. Splendid cosy warm beds and lovely decor. We will come again!!! Thank you Anna and Bevan.
