River Retreat accommodation is a barn that we built in 2013 and converted half into accommodation in which we lived in for a year whilst building our house. When we moved out we fully redecorated, recarpted and put in a log burner. It is completely separate from our house with its own garden and outdoor seating area. It is best suited for a couple but there is a sofa bed in the lounge with bedding provided which can sleep an extra 2.
There is great cellphone coverage, free Wifi, Satellite TV including Sky sport, DVD's, board games and a library.
You can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the views of the hills or if it is a cold day you can light the fire and enjoy the cosiness inside.
We are pet friendly but please let us know beforehand as we have our animals and need to make sure they will all get along first. We have our own pets - 2 dogs, 2 cats and a horse
Guests are welcome to walk around the property and there is access down to the Selwyn river. There are walks along the river or on the hill at the rear of our property.
Allan and I are earthquake refugees from Christchurch who are happy to have found our haven out in Coalgate. We love it so are sure you will too. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and sharing our bit of paradise.
