Uncle Bill's Cottage - award winning bach!

Located in: Ohakune
Uncle Bill's Cottage is a gorgeous country home on a sheep and beef farm in the Orautoha Valley, just 20 minutes from Ohakune. Originally the home of one of the valley's pioneers, it has been beautifully restored while still keeping its history and character. With decks around three sides of the house, there is always somewhere to sit and watch what is happening on the farm.

We live on the property so are there to assist you with any enquiries you may have.

This is perfect spot for a holiday with friends or family, it's away from the cares of the world, but close to all the attractions the Ruapehu region is famous for. We are only 20 minutes from the base of Mt Ruapehu with all the amazing walking tracks and Turoa ski area. Whakapapa Skifield is 45 minutes away.

From the time you step in the door of the cottage you can relax. The kitchen is fully set up with all the appliances you need, and a great espresso machine! We will supply some fresh free-range eggs from our hens, some jam made from fruit grown on the farm, and marshmallows for toasting on the fire down on the riverbank.

There is a washing machine and dryer in the laundry. And with plenty of quality linen supplied, and no cleaning to do at the end of your visit, all you have to do is enjoy yourself! The cottage is warm and inviting in the winter, with a great log burner and plenty of firewood at the door. Very cosy and comfortable! In the summer the deck lets you catch the breeze from the river, while you choose whether to sit in the sun or the shade.

With no wifi or mobile reception it's a great base for completely getting away from it all and enjoying quality time together.

Soak in the outdoor bath, under the stars, glass of wine in hand...or toast marshmallows over a warming fire down by the river - we supply the marshmallows!

There are plenty of farm activities for the children – helping to feed the horse, dogs and chickens; swimming or kayaking in your own private section of the river; feeding the eels; or riding a sled towed behind the quad bike. For the little ones there is a balance bike; a trike; a playground with swings and slide; a play hut; and even an old quad bike for all those imaginary adventures.

You can fish (in season) from right in front of the cottage, with an adult’s and a child’s rod available for you to use. The Manganui O te Ao River, world-famous for its trout fishing, is just 5 minutes away. We have one adult’s and one child’s fishing rod which you may borrow.

With 14 mountain bike tracks to choose from in the region, you are spoiled for choice. We are right on the National Cycleway heading to The Bridge to Nowhere Track, which winds through the 'Valley of Abandoned Dreams' to the Whanganui River, with 35km of spectacular scenery and wild beauty.

Come and experience the perfect family country retreat!

One-night stays may be possible, please just ask. An additional cleaning fee of $50 applies.
