Somers Cottage Romantic Luxury


Perfect Atmosphere - Yours to Enjoy!



Luxury accommodation, romantic and relaxing!


Situated on our Red Cottages Staveley farm, along with the Alford cottage and the Woolshed movie theatre, is our newest addition to the property called the Somers Cottage.


With views of Mt Somers that will blow your mind, it replicates the original Alford cottage in many ways, yet generates a comfortable atmosphere of its own unique accord. Double sided fire between the lounge area and the bedroom, candles, and the modern but yet warm wooden ambience of this luxury new cottage create the perfect spark. 


For two couples travelling together wishing to book both cottages, the Somers cottage and Alford cottage are only 80m apart, yet have their own privacy from gardens and differing mountain views.


Like the original cottage, the new Somers cottage enables you to soak in the double outdoor baths and explore the brightest stars that make up New Zealand's first starlight reserve. Enjoy local produce and wine, whilst watching the sunset over the surrounding mountains, after a day exploring all the local area has to offer.


Bring your own DVD of choice and try the  'Woolshed Theatre' which is only 50 metres from the cottage.  This unique and complimentary experience will be a highlight of your stay - Just enter your name on the clipboard for a time slot upon arrival, then grab a wine and a blanket and settle into a variety of couches in front of the fire while your movie is projected onto a big screen with surround sound.  All this within an original Woolshed setting of native Rimu timber and English corrugated iron. After the movie head back to the cottage to watch the double sided fire flames or sit on the deck and be amazed by the southern sky stars.

Feel free to dine in with your own food or takeaways, or we will assist with recommending the restaurant options in nearby Staveley, Mt Somers or Methven. Most choose to dine on the covered deck watching the sunset over the Southern Alps or on the sofa in front of the fire with a bottle of fine New Zealand wine. Continental breakfasts are available for purchase with your stay, just ask when you book.

Red Cottages Staveley is 1km from the renown Staveley Store, gateway to the Sharplin Falls and Mt Somers hiking trails. It's only 10 minutes from the start of the Mt Hutt Ski area access road and 20 minutes to the town of Methven.  A wide list of activities to do in the area is available here and when staying with us we will talk you through all the local options.  All of this is only 1 hour from Christchurch International Airport and 1 hour and 45 minutes from Lake Tekapo.
