Located in the old gold mining town of St Bathans, Central Otago, the Constable's Cottage (built 1883) and the St Bathans Jail are two of the town's historic buildings. We have updated accommodation with modern More amenities and wifi in both of these: The St Bathans Jail has a queen bed (in the original cell), ensuite bathroom and small kitchen, sleeps one couple. The Constable's Cottage has 3 bedrooms (2 queen beds, 2 single beds) and sleeps up to 6 people. It has a full kitchen and one bathroom. Both the jail and cottage are situated in a lovely garden overlooking the beautiful Blue Lake. The Vulcan Hotel is a short 5 minute walk away for coffees, drinks and food. There is electric vehicle charging available at the cottage. Less
