Book Now

Known also as Jenkins’ Cottage and Outbuildings, this property has been restored and transformed into the Rail Trail Lodge.

The house was one of the historical miner’s residences and we kept the original and lovely vintage style to share with you. Wait till you see the old wood burning stove  and our many decorative touches, get relaxed and chill out with your family or friends! Free unlimited Wi-Fi, Netflix and plenty of parking.

The house has three bedrooms that we named: Otago, Alpine and Fireside.

Otago (Main bedroom): This is the largest bedroom in the house, with a king-size bed, decorative fireplace, wardrobe, wall heater, SmartTV with Freeview and Netflix, windows at the front and side of the house that allows plenty of sunlight to go in and the closest location to the main bathroom.

Alpine: A middle size bedroom with a queen size bed, wall heater, closet, SmartTV with Freeview and Netflix, windows at the front and side of the house and connected to kitchen by the front hallway.

Fireside: A bedroom for kids or friends as it has two single beds, decorative fireplace, wardrobe, wall heater, SmartTV with Freeview and Netflix, a window at the front and connected to kitchen by the front hallway.

The house has a main bathroom inside the building and an outside toilet. The main bathroom has a shower and bathtub, toilet, basin, towel heater, underfloor heating, hair dryer, heater, skylight and a cupboard.

The living room is located at the back of the house, between the main bathroom and the conservatory. It’s the biggest place at the house and an excellent spot for meetings. It has a dining table for six people, heat pump, skylights, ceiling fan, unferfloor heating a big sofa and reading chairs next to the fire place which makes it perfect for relaxing evenings. Also, if you are a music lover please make use of our BOSE audio system!

If we talk about getting relaxed, you have to check out our conservatory. It is located at the back corner of the house and it’s been made mostly with stone and glass. It’s the perfect spot to have a breakfast and to relax reading a book while enjoying the sunlight in the morning. It has a nice tractor table with four banquette seating, a “cow” design seating bench, bar fridge and a TV with Freeview.

The kitchen is located between the front and inner hallway, connecting the three bedrooms. It has a complete set of appliances which includes: Electric stove and hob, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge with freezer. The kitchen has also a dining table and plenty of cupboards for storage, skylights, heat pump, under floor heating and TV with Freeview.  As an extra and decorative feature, you will find an old wood burning stove which was used by the families living here a long time ago.

There are two hallways, the front hallway which divides “Alpine” and “Fireside” bedrooms and the inner hallway which connects the living area, bathroom, main bedroom and kitchen. There is an Apple computer with access to internet for your use.

The backyard has a big table that seats 8, a fire pit and a BBQ to make delicious meals on those lovely summer days.  There is an outside laundry facility with toilet, dryer and washing machine.
