About this Holiday House

This historic holiday home in Arrowtown is packed full of character and colour. Built in the 1870s Off Plumb Cottage is protected as a Classified Historic Building and is a true delight. It has been lovingly brought into the 21st century, with a vibrant living area that is cleverly balanced against a tranquil bathroom and fresh, white bedrooms - sleeping up to six people. Approaching the cottage you’ll enjoy a sense of stepping back in time, with the sweet veranda under which you can kick-back and enjoy the peace and quiet. You’ll be immediately charmed as you step through the front door into the bright kitchen and lounge, with its cheerful wallpaper. A cosy fire adds atmosphere in the winter, but if you want a quick blast of warmth or cooling air in summer, there’s a heat pump on hand. Three bedrooms (queen, double and twin - ideal for 2 children or 1 adult) and a bathroom with shower over bath are inside the main cottage. A fourth bedroom and living space, set up with either a king or 2 king singles, is outside at the back of the property. Each room complements the cottage’s historic status, with well chosen photos, illustrations, furniture and homeware on display. Outside there’s a garden with a lovely old plum tree. Perfect for relaxing on a summer’s day with a cool drink and a BBQ. Positioned right in the heart of Arrowtown you can walk right into the bustling town centre in a matter of minutes. This charming holiday home has been described as “better than a hotel” and guests often tell us they wish they’d booked longer. If you’re after a holiday home in Arrowtown with a blend of history and a modern twist, this is it!

We absolutely loved our stay at Off Plumb Cottage. So much character and old world charm. Such a comfortable and warm little cottage. Very neat and tidy. Great heating if needed and beds very comfortable. We spent most evenings dining/ BBQ, out in the back garden under the plum tree. Took us back to our childhood at Grandmas house. There was only the two of us and it suited us perfectly. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are very quaint and beautiful, as is the main bedroom but quite tight for extra guests to put their luggage, but manageable. Our over all experience was superb and we will return for another fabulous stay at Off Plumb Cottage.
