Timms Cottage allows you to relax with an indoor outdoor space giving you breath taking views of Mt Dobson, Fox Peak and our farm. The cottage is situated behind the family homestead within our garden on our farm, providing a peaceful and private setting. We are only 10 km from Fairlie which has some great eating places, 3 km from Lake Opuha and half an hour from Mount Dobson and Fox Peak. Tekapo and Geraldine are only half an hour away.
“This place is really special. We arrived in the evening to a warm fire, soft lighting, and such a comfy bed. We didn’t see where we were until the morning. When we woke up... Wow! What a view! Outside our windows was a stretch of fields dotted with white sheep, and snow capped mountains. It could not be more lovely. This place was so quiet and relaxing, our one regret is only being able to spend one night. This place is a real treasure, and so close to Fairlie. Highly recommend!”

“We had the most amazing time. The place is stunning, the spa under the stars is spectacular. Julie made us feel so welcome, showed us around and took us on a farm tour and we got to feed different animals, very cute. We were very pleased with the homemade pancakes and other yummy treats, thank you! The kitchen is very well kitted out, with everything you could need. Irecommend everyone to book here.

“Intro: we stayed for almost two months as we stayed for the lockdown due to COVID-19. We have two kids aged 3 and 5 Review: we simply loved it! Everything! And everybody! It was home to us and our boys. We built tipis, did a lot of crafts with what nature gave us, climbed trees, saw sheep shearing, did treasure hunts. The house has a great floor plan. The views from the living room with the big window is breathtaking. The beds are very, very comfortable and almost every bedroom has a small deck. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. We were even able to make a big birthday cake for one of our kids. And it is very cosy and warm. Mark and Maja helped us in every way possible and made us feel home! Thank you so much!”
