You’ll be charmed by this adorable place to stay. Nestled in the picturesque tiny village of Cambrian - Village of trees near St. Bathans an historic gold mining town in Central Otago.
Many places to walk in nature and explore historic sites from the gold mining era. The iconic Central Otago rail trail is nearby plus numerous conservation areas for exploring the wide open spaces.
Many options for dining out within 30 minutes drive.
Relax in the spa under the stars.

The space
Guests are booking the main house which will be their private space. They also have the outdoor bbq area which could occasionally be shared with me.
They have access to the large backyard which includes the spa tub.
The section is well fenced which if you are bringing your dog helps to keep it safe. Within the section is a small paddock which has ample shade and shelter if you choose to bring your horses. (Prior arrangement with me)

Where you’ll be

Cambrians, Otago, New Zealand

Cambrian is known as the Village of Trees. It is picturesque at all times of the year. It is steeped in history from the gold mining years and still has some original mud brick buildings. The old school is open to the public and has many interesting photos and history stories on display.
A beautiful place to walk or cycle around and explore. A photographers paradise.
