Welcome to The Cookhouse @ Hannah's Clearing and our traditionally renovated house sympathetic to it's era and the native beauty surrounding it.

Situated in Hannahs Clearing , a 15-20 minute drive South of the Haast Township, our Historic Holiday Home, (previously the “Cookhouse” for workers at the Old Carters Mill), sits amidst the rugged beauty of the South Island’s Wild West Coast. Bordered by Rainforest and the Tasman Sea, it truly is a fabulous getaway for couples, families and friends.

The space
Completely renovated with a great kitchen and gourmet oven, dishwasher, microwave, open plan dining and living, Sky TV, a great indoor fire for those wet and wild West Coast days, four well appointed bedrooms accommodating eight (2 bedrooms with King Beds changeable to 2 x Singles, 1 bedroom with 3 singles, 1 bedroom with 1 single), one luxury bathroom with bath, shower and toilet, a separate bathroom with shower and toilet - you will find yourself in a very relaxing, cosy and comfortable environment.

Nestled in a private subdivision with access to the Beach (approx. 50 metres away), there is a great deck with a barbecue and a fire pit to burn beach wood and toast marshmallows.

The usually deserted Hannah's Beach (apart from driftwood) is a spectacle in itself with the sea one day being very calm and the next a torrent of raging waves (swimming not advised)!

Whichever way you drive to get to The Cookhouse, down the West Coast or over the Haast Pass from Wanaka, you will enjoy spectacular mountain, bush, sea and river views, including many walks and sightseeing adventures.

So come and stay at our lovely retreat and be surrounded by some of New Zealand’s most spectacular scenery!
