Our farmstay is a unique experience on 75 acres with lots of space and amazing views, just 5-minutes’ drive from Twizel. The family-friendly cottage is modern and warm, with everything you need for a relaxing stay while enjoying the rustic farm environment. Handfeed the friendly farm animals and enjoy the spectacular views of the Mackenzie landscape. On clear nights, admire the starry skies from the outside baths.

The space
The cottage: Located on a 75 acre farm, Merino Cottage has two bedrooms, open plan living with full kitchen facilities, and fast Wi-Fi with free Netflix. It has its own small garden with BBQ, outside dining area, and twin outdoor baths which are perfect for relaxing and star gazing in.

The farm: We encourage our guests to walk around the farm. It’s a great place to relax and spend time family or friends, and visiting the cute and entertaining farm animals who love to make new friends! We have sheep, alpaca, chickens, highland cattle and goats.

Airbnb tip: Consider booking Merino Cottage for a multiple night stay! It’s the perfect base to explore the Mackenzie Region, with Aoraki Mount Cook and Lake Tekapo a scenic 45-minute drive away.

Star Gazing: Merino Cottage is in the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, which means it’s ideal for stargazing! On clear nights, take the beanbags outside or soak in the outdoor baths. You’ll see amazing stars and Milky Way and if you're lucky, a shooting star or two!

Free entry to Tekapo Springs hot pools: To secure complimentary use of the Tekapo Springs hot pools, please email and advise dates for use.

Address: 257 Old Glen Lyon Road (5-minute drive from Twizel)

Bedroom 1: Queen bed
Bedroom 2: Two single beds (port-a-cot available)

Kitchen: there is an oven, fridge, microwave, jug, and toaster. We provide tea, coffee, sugar, cookies, cooking oil, salt, and pepper. Dishwashing liquid is provided.

Entertainment: Smart screen TV with Netflix and fast Wifi.

Laundry: Washing machine and washing powder are in the cottage. A clothes drying rack is in the cupboard. Iron and ironing board are also in the cupboard in the living room.

Heating: The cottage is a new build (2016), warm and well insulated with double glazing. There’s a heat pump in the living room, and heated window in the bathroom.

Guest access
You don’t have to just stay in the accommodation area – please explore the whole property! There’s a map in the cottage with walks, showing where all the animals live. Please close gates behind you. Make sure you go into the sheep enclosure to handfeed the sheep (and see the lambs if it’s Spring time).

Other things to note
Merino Cottage is perfect for both families with children and couples who want to get away and relax with a peaceful stay in the countryside. Enjoy stunning mountain views, the spectacular Mackenzie dark skies, and the added bonus of very friendly farm animals who love to make new friends and be handfed.
