Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
My place is close to family-friendly activities , approx 5 mins from the Ashburton township and an hour away from the Christchurch airport and Mt Hutt Skifield. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with children). In June 2019 we have added additional accommodation of two beds (without bathroom facilities just along from main unit) and table and chairs. Ideal for groups busy exploring. Bathoom facilities provided in main unit suitable for 6 people.

The space
Our cottage is 5 mins from the Ashburton township and consists of two bedrooms, a lounge and dining area, a large bathroom, sky tv and wifi access. A cosy electric fire to cuddle up to at night with heating in both bedrooms. A washing machine is located in bathroom and a clothesline outdoors. June 2019 we have added another two single beds to sleeping availability. Table and chairs in this unit but no bathroom facility. This is located in main unit only 10 steps away.

Where you’ll be

Elgin, Canterbury, New Zealand

Nestled beautifully in the country but very close to the Ashburton township, makes this accommodation a private haven and an absolute treat. Fabulous views of rural views and during the months December to May the owners also grow flowers commercially in paddocks so an extra delight!
