NEWSFLASH: If you're looking at flying in Coldstream Estate now has it's own 900m grass airstrip with walking distance from The Whare. All details are on the website.
If you are looking to get away from the rat race and enjoy the quiet, uncomplicated, country air, or maybe take time out on a working farm or fancy a spot of fishing in one of New Zealand's revered trout and salmon rivers, then The Whare is the place to come. The Whare is not a simply bed for the night - it's an experience!
Situated in a picturesque part of the property, The Whare is surrounded by established trees. In recent years it has been lovingly transformed from former station cookhouse into private accommodation, while retaining as much of its historical character as possible. It is fully equipped with a fabulous large open-plan kitchen and dining room complete with cosy open fire perfect for these colder evenings, separate bathroom featuring a clawfoot bath, and a snug area with log burner. There is also a large outdoor area with barbeque for those long summer evenings or nights admiring uninterrupted views of the glorious night sky, as well as a well-stocked library of books and DVDs available to bide time on those lazy days, and for those that can't do without, there is also free wifi.
Bring your own food and enjoy the large outdoor dining area complete with BBQ or treat yourselves and pre-order a dinner hamper or platter or join your hosts for a relaxed country dinner in the main homestead. Your own personal chef can also be organised on request in advance, or if you would rather eat out, both Geraldine and Ashburton have a wide array of eating options.
For those interested in farming, tours can be arranged with prior notice. While those keen on fishing are welcome to explore the mighty Rangitata River, with an unprecedented 5km of river access directly from the farm, or you can fish in the surf with the Pacific Ocean less than 2kms away. It's also a great place for walking and mountain biking with lots of farm tracks to enjoy, and ideally suited to base yourself from the in ski season with Round Hill Ski Area, Mt Dobson and Mt Hutt ski areas all within easy driving distance.
