Originally accommodation for the grooms, this dwelling is part of the historic listed stable building at Longwood. It has a sitting room with open fire and a separate dining room. It opens onto a large courtyard. Compact, but surprisingly roomy, the decor is colonial NZ with touches of horse brass befitting its position in the stable block. Polished wooden floors and antique kelims add to the ambience.
Perfect for families, children love the upstairs loft reached by a steep ladder (adults please note) and the antique bunk beds. Alternatively it is a charming rustic cottage for a couple.
Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;
The place was very nice, registered with the historic buildings trust
This was an amazing property to stay in. I love houses with history and this had it all!
Great location. We did find the loft/ladder a bit unsafe. But it was enough for us for the one night.
The location is spectacular and very convenient to Featherston and the Wairarapa. The sun setting over the fields around the cottage and the rustic charm of the place was great. The bathroom is a tight squeeze and the shower not great. The loft is not suitable for children and could do with an extra rail or support for increased safety. TV only takes dvds but not a biggie.
great place to stay, the photos don't do it enough justice. We all loved it:)
Lovely quiet retreat - stars were a real treat. Ladder was not for the faint hearted, but everything else was just right. Small rooms but nicely laid out and suited our party perfectly. Love the chicken pictures.
