Overview

Photos and Description of this Cambridge holiday cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

The original woolshed on the farm has been converted into accommodation, using largely recycled materials. The aim was to maintain the original character of the building, the history and essential Kiwi-ness of it, as well as making it as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible.

We have retained various of the original woolshed features - the woolpress now houses the hot water cylinder, a shearing plant graces the wall, and one wall is covered by corrugated iron previously cladding the outside of the woolshed. The living area floor is natural timber, and the remaining living area walls are clad with native rimu taken from the exterior of a demolished woolshed at Whitehall.

Add in quality lights and furniture and the result is a quirky, cosy, country cottage, ideal for romantic getaways or families who enjoy being surrounded by nature. Comfortably accommodates four. See our website for photos.

We are environmentally minded - so whilst you will find everything you need here, we have deliberately omitted various 'luxury', non-environmentally friendly items. There is a microwave, but no dishwasher, clothes dryer, or electric blankets ;-) The Woolshed is however fully insulated, and has a log burner for those cooler winter days.

Enjoy farm walks, birdwatching, and bush walks. Hang out in our Native Garden and fire up the Pizza Oven or built in BBQ.

Pets by prior arrangement; please advise in advance for any conditions.

We are working to reverse the damage done to this farm over the last 100 years, by protecting streams and gullies and replanting native bush. Your stay in The Woolshed will help us fund our conservation efforts!

15 mins to Cambridge's quality cafe's and restaurants.

Cosy, comfortable and characterful. I enjoyed the woodturner and the comfortable armchairs. Gorgeous farm views over the Waikato. Especially lovely for a night walk to see the lights of Hamilton and Cambridge.
