Guest reviews for The Red Cottage

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed July 2021

We had a fantastic stay at The Red Cottage - the upstairs playroom was a hit with the kids. It was nice to stay in a house that was well equipped and supplied the basics, tea. coffee, sugar and soap. Easy walk into town with a park for the kids over the road, comfy beds and warm. Perfect house for a family holiday

Stayed June 2021

Excellent location, our second time back to 'The Red Cottage'. Every cooking convenience and a wood-burning fire for cosy 'leave the world behind' break. All within short walking distance of Arrowtown. Recommend the 'Blue Door', Aosta, Terra Mia, the Fork and Tap, and the cheese cafe, wine shop staff very helpful. Great place.

Stayed January 2021

The Red Barn is the perfect place to stay for a getaway. It was modern, had everything we possibly needed, was super comfortable and warm, and was cleaned to a high standard. Another added bonus was being so handy to the town centre, park, and swimming pool. Thank you Bachcare, we will be back!

Awesome house in a great location

Stayed September 2019

My daughter and I arrived with my 4 granddaughters aged 10 to 14. We all loved the layout and location. Great spaces, games and facilities. 5 min walk to Arrowtown and all it has to offer. Recommend highly

Stayed July 2019

What a great place to stay and so close to Arrowtown shops and entertainment. Such a well designed modern house which accommodated 2 adults and 5 teenagers for a full on weeks ski trip. Would also suit 2 families with 2 kids each. Well stocked with everything we needed. Already looking forward to our trip to Red Cottage next year. Many thanks.

Stayed April 2019

Fabulous house very close to the heart of Arrowtown. Loved the decor and facilities and would highly recommend if you're looking for a stylish and comfortable place to stay. Could admire the autumn colours from the house.

Stayed January 2019

A well laid out and appointed house, comfortable, equipped with everything we needed and very close to the Centre of Arrowtown and yet very quiet and private. An excellent holiday home

Stayed November 2018

The Red Cottage is an excellent house to base yourself while exploring Arrowtown & the surrounding area. A 10-15 minute drive to Coronet Peak and local wineries and a short walk to the start of many local walks of different grades. A modern, stylish house with great facilities in a quiet location, a 5 minute walk to the Arrowtown shops & restaurants. The outdoor fireplace was a great place to sit around and enjoy a few of the local Pinot Noirs after a day of outdoor activities! We enjoyed our stay and felt very relaxed & comfortable, will definitely stay here again.
