Our cottage is close to Mt. Hutt ski field, and Mt. Sunday, movie site of Edoras, plus many bush walks. A NZ heritage 1875 colonial cottage, lovingly restored. Hot tub available - fresh water - fee for heating costs: $27 for first night, $10 per night thereafter. If a cute cottage with modern conveniences appeals, then Ross Cottage is for you! Please, no pets.

The space
Ross Cottage is on a quiet rural road, just off the Scenic Alpine Highway 72. Lovely views of several mountains of the Southern Alps can be seen from the cottage. We would love to guarantee cloud-free days but clouds can hide the mountains! A popular cafe is within easy walking distance. River swimming holes, bushwalks and mountain hiking tracks are nearby. The area has great summer and winter attractions including NZ's best ski field, Mt. Hutt, a short distance away. Mt. Sunday, the movie site of Edoras, home to the Rohan people, is in easy reach for a days outing. From our property we look out to lush farm land, Mt. Somers, Mt. Winterslow and Mt. Taylor. The town of Methven is 17 minutes drive away. Here are services relating to the skifield, plus restaurants, supermarket and shops that meet most needs. Ashburton is 30 minutes drive away, providing the facilities of a larger town. The township of Mt. Somers, five minutes away, has a dairy with petrol & diesel available. We offer free wifi, and have good cell phone coverage. Let us know if you would like the hot tub prepared for you. Please no pets. We have an aging cat who becomes stressed with unfamiliar animals around.

Location

Staveley, Canterbury, New Zealand

Staveley is a small settlement with a cafe, public hall, museum and church. Many residents are farmers with dairy cows, cattle and sheep, while also having an interest in tourism and hospitality. This is a popular spot to stop for a coffee at the Cafe, or to start your bush and mountain walks. The Alpine Scenic Highway 72 takes visitors along the foot hills of the Southern Alps, going south to Geraldine, Fairlie and Tekapo.

We are a couple who love sharing our historic cottage with others. Having travelled extensively it is great meeting people from all around the world. We have both worked in people-related occupations for many years, and have been involved in running retreats, so we are familiar with hosting people, giving them their privacy while being available if needed.
