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 explore the Catlins. Farm trips to stunning sights on our farm or moving stock with Karl will be possible with notice.

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 yet.
This sheep and beef farm will have stock in the surrounding paddocks for you to look at and sometimes pat and feed.
