Looking for a holiday home with character and history? Look no further than Islay Cottage that features all the comforts of a modern holiday home, coming from an extensive restoration.

Built in 1851 by Thomas Kent, who arrived onboard one of the first four ships to Canterbury, the ''Cressy'', Islay Cottage is listed as a grade two heritage home.

Spend your days exploring the surrounding areas, such as nearby Christchurch or the coastal towns, bays and beach areas as well as the hills.

This 3-bedroom holiday home is a beautiful cottage perched on a hill overlooking the harbour of Lyttelton and the beautiful surrounding hills. The living room indoors has a comfortable living space as well as a smart TV. Cooking will be a pleasure whilst being able to enjoy the views through the windows. At the end of the day, unwind in your bedrooms that feature Queen and Single-sized beds.

The home is just a short 10-minute walk away from the town’s coffee shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Central Christchurch is only a 15-minute drive away, where you’ll be able to explore the South Island’s largest city. In the summer months, head to nearby Cass and Corsair Bays, or head over to Sumner Beach, where you’ll be able to spend time relaxing by the sea.

Find your happy place at Islay Cottage!

This is an outstanding, charming and unique holiday home. Great for families, well equipped, super warm and cosy. Awesome view overlooking the harbour. Still very close to Christchurch centre. Lovely holiday manager. We will be back.
