The Garden House
Self-contained accommodation on South Island’s most southerly coast
This was the ‘new’ teacher’s house built at historic Fortrose in1938, now a comfortable character guesthouse, set in the privacy of our farm garden. One double, one twin bedroom, and extra beds. Plenty of space. Your own breakfast patio and big lawn. The kitchen is fully-equipped. There are electric blankets and we supply the linen. There are lots of books, toys and games, original art mainly from Scotland, a Yunca woodburner, also trampoline, mountain bike and kayaks.
The Farm -----The Beach
Behind the house, green pastureland rolls down to the Ocean.
You have private access to a long stretch of deserted southern coastline. The beach offers solitude and endless interest in the way of birdlife, rocks and shells. You can build a summer bonfire on the sand and watch the sun go down over Foveaux Strait.
