This accommodation offers a self contained two bedroom cottage, set on 20 acres. The cottage is 25 minutes from Christchurch Airport and 15 minutes from Rangiora. Easy access to local walks. 45 minutes from Waipara vineyards and 1hr 45 min from Mount Hutt. Accommodation includes 2 bedrooms, shower room, a good sized kitchen diner and laundry. The property also includes free unlimited wi-fi.

The space

The cottage is nestled on our 20 acre equestrian property. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine on the deck and there are good views of the mountains. It is also possible to walk around the grounds and view our horses, miniature horses and donkey. The surroundings are peaceful, but we are close to local amenities.

Guest access

Guests are able to walk around the property, keeping to the marked walking trails. For an extra charge and with prior arrangement guests are also able to bring their own horse and enjoy a trek around our canter track, or ride in our arena or cross country paddock. For keen golfers we also have a home built 9 hole pitch and putt course.

Interaction with guests

We live on site, so are able to offer guests a personal touch and are happy to advise guests on local attractions and things to do. For an additional cost we are also happy to stock up your fridge / freezer prior to your visit with local produce and / or provide home cooked meals.

Other things to note

Our property makes an ideal stop over for guests who are travelling across the South Island or who are competing at local horse events and want a stop over. We can offer paddocks, stables, arena etc. We are less than 10 minutes from the Motorway and are 30 minutes away from the National Equestrian Centre at McLeans Island.

Jacqui, Jon & Jess have really created something special with their log cottage. It's cosy, well-decorated with quirky touches of artwork, and the homemade loaf of bread was a lovely surprise. Rural and peaceful, you're guaranteed a great night's sleep here in their comfy beds. We would happily come back again for a longer stay and will recommend it to others. Thanks so much for having us!
