About this Holiday House

1.3km from Terrace Downs Golf Resort, close to Rakaia River and Lake Coleridge for fishing, 45 minutes to get to Mt Hutt skifield, close to many other activities. Great family holiday home accommodation or for a weekend break for two (only 1 hour from Christchurch). A two bedroom cottage which sleeps six (maximum), it is fully self contained and well equipped, with stunning views of Mount Hutt and the surrounding hills. It is off the road so is private and quiet other than farm activities nearby. Very sunny and warm, with a large fenced lawn area, sand pit, and plenty of room to park (including boats), car port for car, log fire for winter heating (wood supplied). Other close by activities include jet boating, fishing, ballooning, horse riding, and Methven village all within 20 minutes. Please note - sorry but no pets as the cottage is situated in the middle of a working farm. Check out our Facebook page.

Response from Owner
Thank you Janine. And thank you for leaving everything so lovely and tidy. Glad you got some great Autumn weather.
Cathie and Sam were great to deal with. We loved being right in the midst of farm life. Cathie had left photos and lots of information about the farm in the cottage which I found very interesting. The cottage was clean, warm and comfortable - everything we needed.
Response from Owner
Thank you Rosemary. Good to know the things we have there are useful. Lovely to meet you both.
