Overview

Photos and Description of this Glenorchy holiday cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

If you are inspired by old things and being cosy this cottage is the one. The cottage is well over 100 yrs old but has had some TLC to keep it alive, it is fully fenced with plenty of room for all to zoom around.

As with any old place there are quirks and oddities but lying in the big old bath looking outside is a must or giving cooking on the coal range a go. The toilet is an oldie but a goody even if it is a hop skip and a jump from the house,i'd advise bringing a torch!!! For the timid, it doesn't have a flush button!!!!!!

The cottage is fully self contained so all you need is your food, there is a wee general store, however the main grocery shops are 45kms away back in Queenstown!! There are times that fresh produce can be purchased from the property.

Everything in Glenorchy township is within walking distance, it is just a small place, quiet and surrounded by mountains but offers alot of activities for all ages. We have most things here, Pubs, cafes,playgrounds, horses,tramping,jet boats, "huntin and fishin", swimming pool or for the slightly mad "the lake", tennis courts and a nine hole golf course which just so happens to be right across the road as is the lovely "Boardwalk".

Strictly on request, there are Sheep,Ducks,Chooks,Alpaca's,a Donkey and a horse that you can feed or just spy on from a distance and on occasion you may be harrassed by a cat!

Please note# We are a 45 minute drive from Queenstown at the head of the lake.

Special conditions:

Cost is $120 per night for two and $20 per person after that.

Kids under 5 are free.

For smokers, there's plenty of undercover space outside!!

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Glenorcht is lovely and cottage very handy to everything (not that there's much!).

  • 4 of 5

Glenorcht is lovely and cottage very handy to everything (not that there's much!). Cottage is very cosy with lots of sunny spots to sit in the garden. Outdoor bog was fine though less appealing in a thunderstorm! Good cooking facilities, great bath.

Beautiful old house with a lovely garden.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful old house with a lovely garden. The house is so quaint and full of character, it was like being in another world. I loved it. Cy had lit the fire before we arrived so the house was lovely and warm and welcoming. I would give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the long-drop toilet in the garden, although that too was very quaint and part of the experience. Signs saying "Keep calm, carry on" while heading towards it did add to the humour. I would love to go back.

An awesome wee cottage. Very rustic and loads of charm. The fire was on when we arrived. Perfect spot for a weekend in Glenorchy. We'll definitely be back.
