Description
Welcome to Arden Country House ! A distinctive and cosy Otago Bed and Breakfast ! Our lovely cosy country house is a beautiful and welcoming "home away from home" where you can relax and feel at home... Enter a More place that is a new world version of a classic country farmhouse. Our 1950's farmhouse retains many of the period details that make it feel authentically "Old world meets New". At Arden Country House, we offer you a family atmosphere with only 4 rooms and are able to accommodate up to 11 persons at the same time : - Tudor Room : with a nice large king-size bed and a comfortable couch to enjoy a cup of tea and a nice book. - Gezellig Room : our warm and cosy room with a queen-size bed. - The Twin Room : with two single beds or joined to make a super king bed and another single bed - Tree Tops : our "rustic elegant mezzanine" self contained flat which is perfect for a couple or a family of 4 with a queen-size bed and 2 single beds ! Amenities are available for your comfort and enjoyment with thoughtfulness and care : - Continental or Homemade breakfast (bacon, eggs, mushrooms, yoghurt, cereal and toast) - Complimentary hot or cold beverages - Towels and bath robes - Television and DVD player is available upon request - Infant cot - Free Wi-fi (in your room and in the common areas) - BBQ available Distinctive and intimate, Arden Country House is a bed and breakfast to come home to. Let the pastoral landscape and historic charm of our farmhouse rejuvenate your spirits ! We invite you to soak up the rustic elegance of our living room, socializing with new friends and old, in front of the fire or finding that quiet spot to read a book, inside or outside in the warmth of the sun and the fresh country breeze. Or just relax overlooking the scenery of the pastures, hills, trees, and the animals which you can enjoy interacting with. At our place, you can enjoy the fresh air around ! A pleasant drive to Moeraki Boulders is only 42 minutes away and 30 minutes to the start of the Otago Peninsula, which is a great place to explore. We take bookings for Dunedin's wild life attractions, such as the Royal Albatross Centre, Orokonui Ecosanctuary and Penguin Place. And also for the main attractions in Dunedin City such The Cadbury Chocolate Factory and Taeri Goerge Railway's Train Excursion, plus many more. Dunedin City has art galleries, two memorable museums, plus other great spots such as Speight's Brewery Tour to discover a good NZ beer ! But above all, enjoy your stay in the homeliness here ! Less
