About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Situated among the beautiful surrounds of Peel Forest, this cottage is the perfect retreat for a couple, family or small group. Step off the verandah onto the expansive front lawn of the section, boasting 150 year old kahikateas, totara and matai trees, and enjoy the stunning backdrop of the native podocarp forest. The cottage consists of an open plan lounge and dining room leading out onto the verandah accompanied by a kitchen containing all the necessary appliances. With three bedrooms, the cottage can sleep up to 6 people.

The location possesses an abundance of activities. Immerse yourself in the natural environs by walking one of the many bush tracks or trekking to the top of Mt Peel to experience a view of the Canterbury Plains. For those seeking adventure activities, there’s white water rafting and kayaking on the Rangitata’s rapids, a river also renowned for its world class trout fishing. The Peel Forest Cafe and General Store is located nearby and the town of Geraldine is worth a visit to check out its impressive craft shops, winery and cheese delicatessens, supermarket and chemist - only a 20min drive away. Peel Forest is situated approximately 150kms (1.75 hour drive) south of Christchurch. Minimum stay 2 nights.

Another great weekend.

  • 4 of 5

Another great weekend. Kids had fantastic time cooling down at the river before heading back to house for a game of cricket. So peaceful and quiet. The house has everything you need. Very comfortable for the 6 of us. We hope to be back again soon.

Classic character Bach in a very tranquil setting.

  • 4 of 5

Classic character Bach in a very tranquil setting. Beds were comfortable. Lots of board games & books to choose from. Suggest you take your own pillows & duvet covers. Small stove but it looks like it is about to be upgraded. Very well located for events bring held st Peel Forest Lodge.

Owner's Response: Yet again we have a problem of a guest putting pen to paper instead of using their eyes. This guest complains about bedding. Each bed has a mattress protector, a duvet, a pillow plus blankets. All the guest has to provide is sheets and pillowcases (check linen). If extra bedding is required check unlocked draws and wardrobes for extra bedding and pillows. If guest had checked these areas she wouldn't have to make any suggestions.
