Lakeside Cottage

Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
About this space

A homely 112yr old warm cottage that was our family home for 18 years before we built further up the hill. Fully renovated, this cottage is situated on our sheep and beef 1500 acre farm, and is beside the Catlins Lake . Stroll down the driveway and catch a fish, before breakfast or sit on the balcony and just chill. Lovely and quiet, it is the perfect spot to unwind and great base to explore the Catlins. Farm trips to stunning sights on our farm or moving stock with Karl will be possible, but you must be vaccinated against Covid.
The space
Newly renovated, this cottage is warm and dry. There is a fire for the cold days and doors to open on the hot days. A full kitchen with the basics is for your use. Games, magazines and conversations to be had instead of looking at screens. No TV but DVD player.
This sheep and beef farm will have stock in the surrounding paddocks for you to look at and sometimes pat and feed.

Guest access

The whole house is for your private use and the lawn.

5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Loved being on the farm, with sheep being mustered right outside the window, dogs, chickens, fresh eggs for breakfast. The ride in the Hilux up over the back of the farm with Karl was a great touch.Like being on ‘Country Calendar’ with Barry Crump. Superb kiwi experience. The farm house was lovely too. Sitting on the wraparound deck with a coffee and watching life go by. Exceptional

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic time
This property is located on a farm and is amazingly quiet and beautifully picturesque. The house itself is well appointed, comfortable, and feels very welcoming. We had such a wonderful time here relaxing!! It is in very close proximity to many of the wonderful attractions that the Caitlins offers. We would unequivocally recommend staying here…we would love to come back and relax for a week (or two!)…The view from the deck is so tranquil and the whole stay just was just so lovely. Totally perfect.
