The Pickled Pigeon Cottage

The Cottage

The exact date of construction is unknown however it is shown in photographs at its present site, circa 1870's. It is believed originally to be a surveyor's cottage which was moved to this site from the gold mining Blue Spur township near Gabriel's Gully. Undergoing continual restoration, this three bed-roomed cottage is nestled quietly in an exquisite cottage garden which attracts many birds including the native Wood Pigeon, NZ’s Bird of the Year in 2018.

Free WiFi, smart TV, off street parking, full laundry facilities and two sources of heating (wood fire and heat pump) are all included. Cook in the well-appointed kitchen, BBQ in the scented garden, receive a pre-booked meal to your doorstep or wander down to the village eateries, the choice is yours. 

 

The cottage is within easy walking distance of the shops and cafes of Lawrence, an historic gold mining town established in 1861.

 

Lawrence is on the Clutha Gold Trail which offers bike riding and walking trails for the active, it is on the main route between Dunedin (1 hour) and Queenstown (2.5 hours).
