A World Away From Today

Welcome to Centre Hill Cottage, a relaxing organic farmstay retreat near the township of Pleasant Point in the South Island of New Zealand.

Your hosts Ian Blakemore & Tia invite you to experience this beautiful, restful part of New Zealand. Centre Hill Cottage Farm Stay offers cosy private accommodation for discerning tourists and travellers wanting to relax in an atmosphere of peaceful purity, away from the rush of urban life and the trappings of mass-market accommodation. The scenic Totara Valley also offers many engaging and relaxing activities. Read more about our local area.
