Ben Ohau High Country Merino Sheep Station Cottage is a working farm nestled at the foot of the Ben Ohau Mountain Range just 6 minutes from the township of Twizel. The cottage has been built with incredible views just for you.

The space

This is an amazing wee cottage and although we have bunks and can have 3 people staying it is much better suited for 2 people.

Guest access

You will have this quaint cottage all to yourself.

Interaction with guests

Ben Ohau has an incredible history that the owners are keen to share with guests. The farming history is extensive and fascinating but the property has also used in recent years as a film set! For any LOTR fans your hosts can provide you with an exclusive tour of these sites and even share their own experience of being a ork. Please let us know at the time of booking if you would like to have a tour.

Such a stunning place with scenic backyard, panoramic farm view just in front of us. Quiet location but easy access to downtown. Amy is really kind and responsible. Highly recommended.

The cottage is gorgeous, set up on the side of a hill and overlooking beautiful fields and mountains. It was toasty warm despite the cold and provides the perfect couples escape. The kitchen has all you need to cook at home, or there are a number of restaurants in town. Ben Ohau is so close to other beautiful areas like Mount Cook and Lakes Tekapo and Pukaki - you'll struggle to take a bad photo in this region! And don't forget to look up at night - the Milky Way is incredible from there! Priscilla and Amy were both so warm and hospitable, it truly capped off an amazing 3 day stay.

I love meeting our guests and making sure that they have everything they need to enjoy this incredible part of the world. Guests always have an entire home just to themselves but I'm here to give you any "local" knowledge. You might want spend your days in the best fishing spots, on the walking/cycling tracks or visiting LOTR filming locations at night you'll be able to enjoy our International Dark Sky Reserve and there are plenty of options to eat out at night (and day).
