Our Farmers Cottage is located 5mins drive from Kaikoura town centre, the sea, mountains, Whale Watch, Dolphin Encounter, supermarket and i-Site (tourist information), BUT you benefit from being in open countryside, on the very edge of town = PERFECT for a relaxing holiday !!!

Everything on the farm is grown organically. The grounds are spacious. Over the last few years, we've completely restored our beautiful cottage, carefully retaining many of its original features, so it's got an authentic, rustic, traditional feel, BUT with many modern features, eg: a new shower room, ceramic cooker/oven, new log burner in the lounge.
