Possum Cottage has year-round appeal and memorable views with comfort and character you instantly feel at home in. It is in a farmyard setting on our 3500-acre farm just out of Fairlie, which is on the tourist drive between Queenstown, Mt Cook and Christchurch. Situated 5 km off SH 79. we farm sheep, cattle, deer and crop along with the farmyard animals.

A cosy 3 bedroom fully self-contained cottage. Unlike motels there may not be someone to 'meet and greet' when you arrive as we are a working farm. If this is the case you are to just go in and relax after your days travel.
You can mountain bike, walk on the farm, explore the native wilderness in our gorge and tussock land or sit back and absorb the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings. Rivers are nearby for trout fishing.

There is an open fire in the lounge and various other heating options and electric blankets. There are 2 rooms with flatscreen TVs (Freeview) and DVD players and a CD/Ipod stero unit in the lounge.

It is $120 up to 2 visitors
$15 for each extra adult and $5 per child over 2years.
Under 2yrs are free.
If you require linen it is $10 per person

  • Seif contained farm house. Room for a couple of families but rather cold and dated. Not sure how clean it was, couches stained with others hair oil! no breakfast we were led to believe it was a b&b but found out in the morning, they weren't. I had sent a breakfast request via this travel bug site! we arrived 2pm but no one was home, and there was no sign to say this was the right place. We drove away, then rang the cell phone to hear the farmers wife was away for the day in timaru but we could go on in, it was ready for us. This was good, but my husband and i didn't see her till the following morning. We didn't feel free to leave the house and walk around, because we hadn't been introduced. All in all a rather strange experience, we wouldn't go back. 1

  • We do not advertise as a B&B. I'm sorry that they were expecting something different As the cottage is self contained we have everything there for cooking so rarely get asked for breakfasts When I heard this I did offer but she said no they had breakfast food from the previous accom. B/fast comes at an extra charge which I admit was omitted from the listing but now I have corrected this. I'm surprised they were cold but with an open fire ready to put a match to, several heaters and electric blankets it would have been great if she had found a way to be cosy. Its a pity they didn't go out and speak to my husband when he was a few metres away feeding the animals that evening and/or read the cottage info book inviting visitors to 'wander around the tracks on the farm’. I apologise for the hair product on the chair which has happened in the last fortnight. I am organising a replacement. I feel the furnishings are appropriate for the price and character of the cottage. Yes, it is clean.
