Our Shepherd’s Hut is the perfect place to relax and unwind on the peacefulness of a farm, just 5-minutes’ drive from Twizel. The hut is surrounded by amazing views of the stunning Mackenzie Region, and features a fully equipped kitchenette, queen bed with skylight above, fast Wi-Fi, free Netflix, outside dining area with BBQ, and “his n hers” outdoor bathtubs for stargazing on clear nights. You’ll love handfeeding the friendly farm animals, and walking around the 75-acre farm!

The space
Our Shepherd’s Hut is a cosy, small space, designed for couples wanting to experience these popular “tiny homes”! Guests are welcome to walk around the farm and visit with the tame animals. Relax on the deck and admire the beautiful, spacious views, then soak in the outdoor bathtubs under the sparkling stars of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve. We also have our Damara Shepherd’s Hut No. 2, if you’re travelling with another couple or hut No. 1 isn’t available.

The farm: We encourage our guests to walk around the farm. It’s a great place to relax and visit the cute and entertaining farm animals who love to make new friends! We have sheep, alpaca, chickens, highland cattle and goats. We provide complimentary feed so you can handfeed the animals.

Airbnb tip: Consider booking a Shepherd’s Hut 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: The Shepherd’s Hut is in the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, which means it’s ideal for stargazing! On clear nights, soak in the outdoor bathtubs – you’ll see amazing stars and Milky Way and if you're lucky, a shooting star or two!

Address: 257 Old Glen Lyon Road (5 minutes’ drive from Twizel)

Entertainment: Smart TV with free Netflix and fast Wi-Fi. There’s a skylight above the bed for stargazing!

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
Our Shepherd Huts are cute and cosy, designed for couples who want to enjoy a tiny home experience with everything you need for a peaceful and comfortable stay. Enjoy stunning farm and 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!
