Pure Peaceful Luxury
Centre Hill Cottage organic farmstay retreat is suitable for up to four people. The cottage is set on a gentle, north-facing slope amongst mature trees, especially some fine eucalypts and cabbage trees. A 50-metre walk connects to the farmhouse of the Centre Hill Organic Farm and any assistance you may need from the proprietor, Ian Blakemore.
Lounge & Dining Area
The cottage’s main feature is the large lounge/dining area which features, at one end, double doors leading to the broad timber patio and at the other end a cosy wood burner that fills the cottage with warmth on winter evenings.
The living room has a spacious kitchen, which includes a refrigerator, microwave, bench-top electric cooker, and a full range of cutlery, crockery, and cooking utensils.
There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and superb views to the countryside, the other with two single beds with views across the farm. Electric blankets and bedding are supplied.
The cottage has a luxurious bathroom that includes: heated floor tiles, modern shower, washbasin, three-person raised spa bath (with a view), and fan extractor. Two separate toilets are installed, one indoors and the other attached outside. A favourite feature is the outdoor bath tub, with hot and cold water and peaceful views over farmland to the setting sun and the Southern Alps.
Breakfast, Food & Wine
A special highlight of your stay is breakfast supplied by your hosts Ian & Tia. It includes freshly home-baked bread, organic fruits with local organic yoghurt, cereal, fresh farm eggs and herbs and condiments. Your stay also includes a complimentary food hamper with wine on arrival.
