The Shepherd's Rest is a cosy Shepherd's hut, reminiscent of the huts shepherds would shelter in while tending to their flock of sheep. The Shepherd's Rest is suitable for a maximum of 2 adults - sorry no children allowed. The hut is separate from our home & has a view looking out over neighbouring farmland & the Kakanui Ranges. It's a tiny space and a little like glamping but with the luxury of electricity. It has a queen size bed with fairy lights above to create a bit of magic! There is a kitchenette with mini-fridge, electric jug, toaster, 2 ring cooker, rice cooker, cutlery and crockery as well as small table and chairs for dining. The ensuite bathroom contains a shower, vanity and composting toilet. Relax outside in the Cape Cod chairs with a glass of wine or venture out at night for a bit of star-gazing. Mini herb garden.
We provide linen, towels, fluffy bathrobes and locally produced artisan soap. There are boardgames to keep you entertained. Note there is NO WIFI - it's digital detox time!!
You can still sleep in the hut over the winter months. It has a heater as well as plenty of spare blankets. Just remember that the hut is a glamping experience and is not the same as a house.
The Shepherds Rest is self-catering so remember to bring your food for meals or visit one of Oamaru's restaurants and cafes.
$115-$120 per night 1-2 people. $100- $110 for multi night stays. (seasonal)
