Highly rated purpose built cottage,located at the very end of Birdsferry Road,Ferry Man's Cottage offers an exclusive retreat set in it's own private gardens within our 33 acre property. 2 Km from SHW 6 and located on the edge of a small lake, with only native Wekas and wild Ducks as neighbours this is a most peaceful spot.The native kiwi can be heard calling here at night. Ideally located, midway between the West Coast glaciers and Nelson/Picton,making it the perfect spot to break your journey.
The solid timber cottage is finished to a very high standard and designed to take in the panoramic mountain and ocean views all the luxury touches of Birds Ferry Lodge but with a fully equipped kitchen in your own private setting. Luxurious interiors are warmed by a roaring fire meaning the cottage is cosy at all times of the year.Double g...

Feels private with surrounding...
