Northfield is a pretty special spot – you can curl up in front of the fire after a day’s skiing or have a lazy breakfast out on the deck on a sunny morning. It is spacious and relaxing and yet just a stone’s throw from the bars and restaurants in town. A perfect base for a ski holiday, to explore the area, or to just kick back and have a relaxing weekend.

The space

Northfield is over 100 years old and has recently been fully restored and renovated to create a beautiful, warm and characterful home. The house is set in 4 acres of gardens and paddocks, so has a beautiful outlook and peaceful feeling, and yet is only a short 10 minute walk to the bars & restaurants in the centre of town.

You have a private master suite with a comfortable super-king sized bed, large wardrobe space and an ensuite bathroom. The bedroom is bright and spacious and has a tv, stereo, armchairs, feature fireplace (unused) and access onto your private upstairs balcony. The bathroom has a large shower, toilet and double sinks – towels, bathrobes and luxury bathroom products are provided for your use.

Downstairs, you have access to the living room, sitting room and library. We offer complimentary Wi-Fi, Netflix, games and books to use while you are here, as well as plenty of information about local activities and venues.

A continental breakfast is included in the rate. You have access to the kitchen for complimentary teas, coffees and cookies. You are welcome to order in takeaways but no cooking.

Please note: we have a dog who is sometimes inside.

Guest access

Inside you have access to the living room (with fire & TV), sitting room, library, bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Outside, you have access to the front lawns, the downstairs deck, and the private upstairs balcony accessed from the master bedroom.

This is a beautiful home hosted by an excellent couple. They are friendly, helpful and interesting. It is just a short walk to town which is well served by very good restaurants. Short drive to Mount Hutt skiing. This is by far the best Air BnB experience that we have ever had.

We highly recommend staying here. The house is stunningly restored and room is elegant, palatial with fantastic bathroom and shower! Breakfast is delish. Fireplace always on in comfy room. Arleen is friendly and helpful with everything....lovely home with sweet dog too. Oh and loads of walnuts straight from the property. Nice and quiet with close walk to town. Would definitely stay again!
