About this Holiday House

Cosy, comfortable, historic country cottage, nestled in a picturesque valley on the east coast of the Wairarapa. Home to the special 'Stansborough Greys' of the Real Middle Earth, some gentle alpacas and a working NZ sheep station. The wool from the famous grey sheep were developed to inspired the costume designers from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, to name but a few. Almost 3,000 acres of scenic landscape to explore. Beautiful walking tracks with wide vistas from the Tararuas to the East Coast. Bush covered Valleys alive with the sound of native birds, stunning swimming holes and small lakes to canoe during the lazy summer days. Relax, unwind or explore. Canoe on the lake, fossick for unusual rocks, catch some tadpoles or just enjoy long summer evenings with a BBQ and glass of wine. Riversdale beach is just 20 minutes drive for safe beaches, seaside activities and fishing. The cottage has 3 large double rooms, comfy beds, spacious kitchen\dining with all your basic needs, electric heating and large shower. Set in own garden with wood and gas BBQ. No TV or Cell phone coverage though, but plenty of books and board games.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stansborough. We will definately be coming back. Such a beautiful place, and great to have the whole house to your self.
Barry & Cheryl,
We had a great stay, beautiful and quiet! Great big roomy cottage, thanks for letting us have the privilege of walking round your wonderful farm/station. It was always interesting to watch the alpacas look over to the cottage expectantly for nibbles every time we came out of the cottage door!! We shall surely come and stay when we visit the Wairarapa again. Thank you.
