A charming self-contained two bedroom cottage in a private rural setting: own deck; exclusive use of a shade garden; and use of hot tub (shared with hosts and other guests).

With plenty of parking and private access, it's a perfect spot to relax after a busy day. Ideal for business travel and/or a rural getaway. An easy drive to Hamilton and Cambridge; 12 mins from Mystery Creek, Hamilton Airport and Te Awamutu. Continental Breakfast included.

The space
The cottage is fully self contained with kitchen (oven, hob, microwave, under bench fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle etc) and bathroom with shower and washing machine. The cottage is a short hop away from the main homestead where there is full laundry facilities (iron/dryer), and extra freezer or fridge space if required.

A Continental Breakfast awaits you in your room, ready to enjoy whenever it suits. Energise your morning with a range of cereals, seasonal fruit, toast bread and home baking, preserves and spreads, homemade yoghurt and free range eggs. Coffee/tea/milk is available 24/7.

We are on the corner of a large working dairy farm so at times there may be cows/calves across the fence.

Please note:
This is a rural space to relax. Day visitors only on prior agreement. Adults only. We extend a warm welcome to the LGBTQ+ community.

I'm Julie. Together with my husband Jel, we're down-to-earth hosts here to share our world with you. Our property is set on the corner of a dairy farm in Ohaupo with a rural outlook and occasionally some cows munching on the hedges from across the farm fence. The bird life is prolific – expect to see or hear pheasant, duck, tui, kingfisher, wild parakeet and admire the harriers circling over the wetlands. A Welsh name, spelt phonetically as ‘ah-wen-ith’ for those who haven’t got their heads around pronouncing YDDs, an 'awenydd' is someone who is inspired or seeks inspiration through the bardic arts (such as storytelling, song, poetry and instrumental music) – aptly suited to Julie & Jel, your hosts. We are creative creatures. When we’re not hosting you’ll find us making, fixing, growing, brewing, photographing or undertaking various projects from upcycling to creating music. A wild veggie patch and numerous fruit trees are the source of inspiration for regular baking and preserving marathons, the results you’ll enjoy when you visit.
