India House is a charming, rustic, fully furnished 3 bedroom holiday cottage, overlooking a small lake, set in 20 acres of lawns and grounds surrounding the historic Ica Station Homestead.

Nearby at Riversdale or Castlepoint you can enjoy surfing, swimming, tennis, golf, sea fishing, trekking or river fishing. Or just relax, read a book and enjoy the peace and quiet of this wonderful rural location.

A dog by PRIOR arrangement only - cost $15 extra per night.

The space
Rural yet close to two local beaches (Riversdale and Castlepoint), this is the ideal place to come for a totally relaxing holiday or short break in Summer or Winter!

The wood fire keeps you 'toasty and warm' in the Winter - with all the wood you need supplied!

Just a short stroll across the lawns to the back of the homestead to enjoy the spa pool all year round, or cool down in our swimming pool in the Summer months. Please note you must have a vaccine pass to make use of these 'shared' facilities.

We are Carmen & Richard Tredwell - originally from the UK, now NZ citizens. We've lived in New Zealand for the past 17 years and love it. We live in a beautiful historic homestead that we've turned into a B&B and have two ornate holiday cottages all set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens. For seven months of the year (Oct - Apr) we run the 'Whareama Coastal Walk' from here - a fully catered 2 or 3 day walking experience over private farmland with isolated coastline views! So if you enjoy trekking, check us out. We enjoy having visitors come and share our 'little piece of paradise' here in the Wairarapa, on the East Coast of the North Island. We look forward to meeting you!
