Wonderful family getaway
We absolutely loved our time staying in the shearers' quarters at Sawdon Station. The location is the best of both worlds - you feel like you're miles from anywhere, but it's an easy five-minute drive from Tekapo. The accommodation was super cosy and comfortable, with a big stack of wood for a roaring fire, and magical views beyond the woolshed to the mountains. We loved collecting pinecones for the fire, having family dinners around the big kitchen table, and just standing outside gazing at the incredible starry sky! Sue was a lovely host who made sure we had everything we needed and gave us lots of great recommendations for local activities - including horse trekking, which was amazing. We really hope to come back one day!
Great place to stay
The second time we have stayed - and will be back next year. Great location and facilities are perfect for what we need. Sue and Snow are super accommodating and very friendly. Highly recommended.
Wonderful Getaway close to Tekapo
We had a fantastic few days there with family over the New Year period. Gazing up at the awesome starry night sky while welcoming in the New Year was a highlight!
The Shearing Quarters was perfect for us, with plenty of space for all and a large lounge to play board games, cards etc or just reading a book.
Close to Tekapo but gave us the feeling we were miles from the crowds in our own little slice of paradise!

The Shearer's Quarters are a spacious cottage with everything one needs for a comfortable stay in a beautiful location, with brilliant sun rise and sun set views across the main devide. We will definitely be back!
The location is stunning - quiet farm setting and views to the mountains.
The location is stunning - quiet farm setting and views to the mountains. The house is old (as advertised) but everything functions well and it was toasty warm when we got the fire going one freezing morning.

Please note the rating is for the Shearers' House. The cottage would have been higher. The location was excellent for visiting Tekapo. We loved sitting outside for breakfast in the farm setting - wonderfully peaceful.
