After 15 busy years of welcoming guests it is time to close the doors of Uncle Bill’s Cottage.
When we started renovating Uncle Bill’s old home, who knew that it would turn into a life-changing adventure? We’ve had such great times, met so many wonderful people and shared lots of special moments with you and your families on the farm.
Thank you for being part of our lives. It has been a privilege to have met you. We will miss your smiling faces but treasure the memories - especially those of mud splattered kids at the end of a sled ride!
Have a wonderful Christmas, and may the New Year bring you good health and happiness.
Love Gordie and Jenny

Still lots of snow and slush on the roads around the Central Plateau, and it’s bitterly cold (glorious sunshine down in the valley of course). A truck carrying 17 tonnes of chocolate tipped over just out of Raetihi - disaster! I rushed out to help as soon as I heard

Poppy and Josie’s family are spending lockdown at the cottage, so the girls spent a sunny afternoon creating this Anzac Day tribute - didn’t they do well!

Time to make the Christmas cake, but 47 years after my mother wrote the recipe down it’s getting harder and harder to read! 😄

A year on from our win in the Bach of the Year competition and we've met so many wonderful people - thank you everyone who has visited and shared the Uncle Bill's Cottage experience!

From its origins as the home of a confirmed bachelor wary of “fast women and slow racehorses” to one of New Zealand’s premier family baches – that’s the story of Bill’s Cottage, Ohakune.

TimeOut is such a worthwhile organisation that deserves all the support we can give it!

Rainy days call for board games with family and friends and most importantly it creates timeless memories.

Please share this post so we can reach those in need of a TimeOut.
