What we love

  • Beautiful ocean views
  • Outdoor bath tub
  • Isolated location

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.

Shepherds Cottage is superb for couples and relaxing. Some 30 minutes from the homestead by four wheel drive it is surrounded by 4000 acres of sheep farm. Comfort and atmosphere are in plenty. Gourmet food is provided by the chef and delivered daily. Simply heat and serve. The food is outstanding and plentiful. If a romantic rustic getaway is your goal, look no further. Annandale is a pleasant hour and a bit drive from Christchurch or take a helicopter from the airport.
