Enjoy the open spaces, the rural aspects and a charming and comfortable, yet spacious well appointed studio. Semi attached on 1/2 an acre, Bridget and her 3 labradors welcome you. Hawkshead is surrounded by grazing land and a 2minute walk across the farmland to the Makarora River. Wake to a mountain view all around and the early morning sun. You have your own private entrance and outdoor seating area. The ?hawkshead? culture is a very relaxed one. Ideally located 1 hour from the West Coast at the head of Lake Wanaka makes perfect for an overnight stay.

The property is just a short walk from the Makarora River, on a quiet side road.

The property is just a short walk from the Makarora River, on a quiet side road. The bedroom is huge, with a desk, lounge and extra facilities. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. We highly recommend this place, and take a trip with Wilkin River Jet-boats if you have the time.

The cottage is exactly like what you see in the pictures, homey and well equipped with all you need inside, plus a fabulous view outside. I wish I could stay there a little longer!

I am so glad we decided to get out of the main centres of Otago when we booked our holiday.

I am so glad we decided to get out of the main centres of Otago when we booked our holiday. The scenery from Queenstown up to Makarora was fantastic. The accomdation at Hawkshead is cosy and comfortable with all the comforts of home. Heaps of adventure at Makarora, a neat pub and cafe' and it is so central. 1 hour north to Haast and the west coast, 1 hour south to Queenstown. I really should be keeping this a secret but what a awesome place to stay. We're already planning our next trip to Otago.
