Escape to Kestrel Cottage, a quaint Kiwi ski retreat that exudes practicality, comfort and character for your next ski getaway.

Kestrel Cottage is appointed with three cheerful bedrooms to accommodate up to four adults and four children, making it the perfect ski holiday destination for the whole family.

Mornings spent in this cosy cottage may involve brewing a cuppa before perching on one of the outdoor cafe chairs as you take in the views of the property surrounds. In the evenings, make use of this home’s generous heating as you snuggle up on the couch with a book and a glass of wine. Or catch up on your favourite movies and TV shows with the Smart TV and Chromecast.

In the snug kitchen and dining area, pops of colour and artistic decor bring this charming cottage to life. A well-appointed kitchen provides a perfect area for preparing a home-cooked meal. The dining area then acts as the perfect space to bring the whole family together.

A great base to explore Tongariro National Park from, Kestrel Cottage is just a 25-minute drive from New Zealand’s largest ski area, Whakapapa Ski Field. If you’re after extraordinary views of the National Park, mountain biking is also possible from Fisher’s Track, reachable in under 15 minutes by car. Or, if you want to tick a New Zealand Great Walk off your list, the Mangatepopo Road starting point of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is also just 15 minutes from Kestrel Cottage.

For the ultimate National Park escape, look no further than the character-filled, delightful destination that is Kestrel Cottage.

We had a lovely couple of nights at Kestral cottage, it was well equipped, tidy and clean. Thank you as it was the perfect base to walk the Tongariro Crossing.
