About this Holiday House

The Blue Duck Farm Woolshed is located in the Seaward Valley at Mangamaunu just 30 minutes North and then West from the village of Kaikoura. Below and adjacent to the Woolshed is the Blue Duck Scientific Reserve, the largest remaining area of accessible lowland podocarp forest between the Marlborough Sounds and Otago. The reserve is home to majestic stands of native Totra, Rimu, Miro, Matai, Kahikatea. These ancient trees are BIG and the drive in to the Woolshed is absolutely spectacular! The Blue Duck Woolshed offers a unique New Zealand High Country experience. The Woolshed maintains it's original external appearance and inside it's configuration as a shed. While preserving these basic features it has also been transformed into warm comfortable accommodation that sleeps up to 8 with two bedrooms, a central lounge and dining area and modern bathroom. The theme is 'basic country', much of the furniture is colonial in period with some pieces of specific historic interest. The Blue Duck Trading Company maintains a large wall-mounted display cabinet, itself a museum piece from a drapers shop in the Whanganui district, displays samples of groceries and general goods with which it has supplied the rural community over the past century and more. The Woolshed has commanding views of the Seaward Vally Station and Central Saddle abutted by Mt Alexander on one side and Jacob's Ladder on the other and a glimpse of the distant ocean inbetween. With accommodation for up to 8 people and it's close proximity to the Coast and the Kaikoura township it offers a great escape for an adventure winter or summer and a very special New Zealand historic experience that tells a story of early NZ rurtal life.
