Romantic, rustic Shepherds Hut on 850 acre farm in the beautiful Takamatua Valley. Only minutes by car from the historic French village of Akaroa with its many cafes, restaurants,shops and water activities. Walk the hills strewn with native trees and bush, stunning views out to sea, abundant birdlife, waterfall and creeks. The Hut is private yet close to historic farmhouse built in 1898 for the Mora family. The Shepherds hut has been restored with modern comforts, but retaining all the charm of yesteryear.
Out door Bath and shower ( with hot running water) on secluded deck. Breakfast Hamper included. BBQ and Microwave.

The property was exactly what we expected as a cousin had staid there a couple of years ago and had raved about. next time were in Akaroa we will want to stay there as it was peaceful and delightful no vehicle noise just babbling brook, birds and farm animals
Nice little cute place tucked away to escape from the world.
Peaceful location, good facilities, delicious breakfast - and loved the outdoor bath
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Shepherd's Hut on our honeymoon. It was a place we both absolutely loved (definitely our favorite out of the 10 places we stayed at on our holiday). Tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and decorated, it felt both homely but also very special and out of the ordinary. We will definitely be making the trip back down when we can.
This has to rate 5 star for peaceful and relaxing surroundings. It was the perfect end to our holiday and we were rested and ready for the return home.
Best part was NO TV and NO RADIO and time to read and enjoy some music. We loved the whole experience and if we make it back to NZ we will certainly stay with you again.
