The Old Baker's Cottage

Adults-only cottage in Christchurch
The Old Baker's Cottage
Located near trendy 'The Colombo' shopping mall in Sydenham, this cute cottage, built around 1918, makes for an excellent centrally located place to stay in Christchurch. With a double and a single bedroom it is a great place for a couple or three people
The property is fully fenced; sunny and warm with an enclosed backyard. If any fruits and vegetables are ready for harvesting, feel free to pick some and use them in your cooking.
The cottage has recently had a make-over. New carpet was laid in both bedrooms and living area with new thermo-coated curtains covering the windows. All walls were painted and a new shower cubicle and toilet were installed in the bathroom. All add to a fresh and clean environment where it is a pleasure to stay. The cottage is fully furnished, cosy, rustic, and TV-free. Wi-Fi has been connected though. The heat-pump warms the whole house. All linen is provided.
The inner city of Christchurch, the Botanical Garden, Museums and Art Galleries (3km away) can be reached easily. Busses depart only 50 m away from the front door, on Colombo Street, the main road which runs through the city centre. A supermarket, a number of fast food outlets and public parks (one with playground) can be found within easy walking distance of the cottage.
Christchurch calls itself the 'Garden City' and looks pretty at any time of the year. A walk along the close by Heathcote River is a delight at any time of the year.
Christchurch is renowned across the country for its stunning mountain bike trails. The cottage is located near the more extreme tracks on the Port Hills and in Victoria Park. These areas also boost many walking tracks. The Christchurch Adventure Park is only a few km away. There's outdoor adventure to suit every level.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this cottage offers an iron/ironing board. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include baths or showers.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely little cottage
Great little cottage which suited us perfectly. Was a bit cold on the first night (-7 that night, and perhaps had been empty for a few days before we arrived), but warmed up later.

5/5 Excellent

Quiet and close
We found it quiet and close to the city. Nice to be far enough away from the CBD, but literally only 1 or 2 minutes drive from it. Very clean, warm with the heat pump and comfortable beds.
