A beautiful original cottage (1875) with a double bedroom, living space with kitchenette, and bathroom. We are a young family on a lifestyle block above the ocean with spectacular views, beautiful gardens and an assortment of sheep and chickens.
We believe we have one of the most beautiful spots on the Otago Coastline (and possibly the world!) and we love to share it with people. The cottage is the original maid's quarters and still retains much of the original character whilst having the convenience of a bathroom and small kitchen added.
We can comfortably accommodate 2 adults in the queen size bed and it is possible to put a king single bed in the living space if required.
Feel free to go for a walk around our little lifestyle farm: perhaps a stroll down to the ocean, a wander past the sheep or chickens or explore the 1875 barn with an interesting collection of old farming and whaling equipment. Sit and enjoy the view and the bird song in the beautiful gardens.
We love meeting new people, hearing their stories and helping them make the most of their time in the area. Our family house is situated close to the accommodation and the outside areas are shared. However, we are also very happy to give you all the space you need to enjoy your time in our little slice of paradise. From experience, you are unlikely to hear us as the buildings are separate.
Warrington does not have any shops or restaurants. The nearest supermarket and cafes/restaurants are in Dunedin. There is a small corner store 8 minutes away in Waitati and another in the opposite direction in Karitane but these have a limited range of grocery items. There is also a cafe in Waitati but it is not open for dinner. We are happy to provide dinner at a reasonable price (just covering costs) if you would find that helpful.
We are a non-smoking property and we do not allow pets. We ask that guests take care to leave farm gates as they find them if they walk around the property (shut the gate if it's shut or leave it open if it's already open).
I'm a stay-at-home mum at the moment, with two young boys to keep me entertained. My husband and I run a small farm with 20 - 50 sheep (depending on the time of year), 10 chickens and a cat. I love gardening and we have a large vegetable garden, an orchard with apple, plum and pear trees and large flower gardens surrounding the buildings. Our other hobbies are music, hiking, camping, reading, eating and talking.
