The original farmhouse is crafted from hand-cut timber milled from the property over 150 years ago. Lovingly restored inside and out to meld seamlessly into the natural folds of rolling grassy paddocks and tranquil garden full of blooms and bird song.

Catching all day sun the charming retreat offers an endless number of ways to unwind. Brunch on the morning veranda looking across the garden to the paddocks. Reading on the front veranda watching the wood pigeons swoop by and feed from the giant pohutakawa tree. Watch the kids enjoy the play ground or have a chat to the friendly sheep in the orchard paddock. Long lunches and dinners in the garden and nights snuggled up with a board game by the fire.

Accrington has six bedrooms and can accommodate between 1 - 15 people. The design of the house ensures it to feels cosy with 1 - 2 people while the upstairs loft provides space for larger gatherings.
