Historic Pavitt Cottage, built in 1852, is a charming country holiday home set in the rolling green landscapes of rural Akaroa.

A slice of New Zealand heritage, with great walks and mountain biking tracks, this is a special find just 9-minutes from Akaroa town.

Historic Pavitt Cottage is a step back in time from the farm-style kitchen fitted with the original wooden Kauri sink and benchtop to the antique furnishings in every room.

Bring everyone together in the open-plan living and dining room to enjoy those delicious holiday meals. In summer, when dusk falls, gather with your group to share an alfresco meal looking out to the surrounding trees.

Head just a few minutes drive down the road to get into town, where you can explore the local shops and cafes. Take a scenic cruise around Akaroa Harbour, host to amazing sea mammals and birdlife, including the world’s smallest and rarest dolphins, the Hector's dolphin, New Zealand fur seals and white-flippered penguins.

Rural bliss in a magical pocket of Akaroa awaits at Historic Pavitt Cottage!
