The house is a small cottage, but the gardens are beautiful and the whole setting is gorgeous.

We loved the antiques around the house and the property. The cottage is not full of mod cons, but it had everything we needed.

The property has amasing established gardens and lots of things to see including a beautiful church and museum. The property was like we had stepped back in time - perfect place to start our genealogy research trip, and is only 5mins away from Ashburton.

Fantastic property immaculately maintained and a true Canterbury experience with working farm and country gardens. Accommodation was very well set up with absolutely everything needed. Very close to town.
