Indulge in a simpler way of life. Set high on the hill, with an uninterrupted view of the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean and the snowy peaks of the Kaikoura Ranges in the far distance, this charming and secluded rural retreat, less than two hours from central Christchurch, makes a perfect romantic getaway.
On arrival at Annandale, one of our drivers will escort you on a spectacular 30-minute 4WD journey across the cliff-top farm tracks to this exclusive and remote property, previously only enjoyed by generations of Annandale shepherds. Now it has been carefully restored and extended to ensure a romantic and memorable stay: relax in the outside bathtub at the end of the day and snuggle up on the sheepskins in front of the open fire, before heading upstairs to the warm bedroom under the eaves.
Whether you are celebrating a relationship or getting over one, writing a book or just reading one, the isolation and historic ambience of this unique location will inspire you.

We were absolutely blown away by our two night stay at the Shepherds Cottage. If you're looking to escape the rat race and totally switch off for a few days then this is your place. The premise "go where the world won't find you" delivers...we enjoyed the beautiful outdoor bath and relaxed in front of the huge roaring fire. The cottage itself is incredible, there isn't a thing that hasn't been considered, simply finished but with such quality and thought.
