SEPTEMBER - bounce into Spring, a bottle of wine with every booking. OCTOBER - MIDWEEK DEAL - Pay for 2 nights and 3rd night FREE (you need to email or phone to make a booking) - *Not valid for weekends or long weekend. **All of the above applies to DIRECT BOOKINGS only. 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. Say hello and feed our curious alpaca. 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)
