Experience of staying on an iconic farm property

This fully restored 1870's one bedroom cottage is waiting for you to enjoy.

Located on a historic sheep and beef farm on a picturesque part of the Wairarapa Coast, this cute cottage was originally built for the Station cook. In later years it has housed the overflow of family guests until its full refurbishment in the last 6 months.

Come and relax in its luxurious surroundings away from civilization. Bring your walking shoes or mountain bike to explore the many tracks over the scenic property, or bring your picnic basket, fishing rod and your book.

Whatever you are looking for in accommodation away from it all this place is your answer. Walk 15 minutes to the beaches located on the farm, hike to the skyline to take in the panoramic coastal views, bike to the river for a picnic or simply enjoy being on a large farm. While you stay you will have access to certain parts of the farm for walking and biking (please bring your own), and access to the coast and Kaiwhata river. There is also access to a swimming pool and grass tennis court in the homestead garden during the summer months.

The options are endless.

- Riversdale Beach resort is located a 15 minute drive away which features a village store (providing coffee, takeaway meals and grocery supplies), a 9 hole golf course and a surf club patrolled beach (operating during the summer months).
- Castlepoint is a 50 minute drive away if you fancy a day trip, with a stop at the Tinui Cafe and Bar a must on the way.
