Thyme Lane is a rural setting in an historic gold mining area. It's near the Central Otago Rail Trail and Clutha Riverside trails. Five minutes to Alexandra or Clyde. One hour’s drive to Queenstown. Enjoy the outdoor space, nearby vineyards and orchards, and local cafes. You'll have your own cottage with bedroom (kingsize bed), ensuite bathroom, and living room with kitchenette (microwave, hotplate, sink). The rammed earth cottage is over 100 years old. It suits couples and solo adventurers.

Guest access
There are 3 buildings on the site. The cottage sits on a small rise facing away from the other buildings. I live in one of the other buildings. The cottage has it's own private outdoor barbeque area with a large table. Other eating and sitting areas allow you to relax in the sun, or under the shade of the poplar and willow trees on a hot day.

You look out over the lavender-lined path, and across the "Thyme Lane cricket oval" to Conroy's Creek. There are a couple of bench seats around the oval to relax on. Conroy's Creek is within the property and is flanked by willows and poplars. There are several old horse drawn agricultural implements around the grounds, assorted other relics, and a gig.

You have access to all areas other than immediately around the other 2 buildings.

Other things to note
A welcome pack makes it easy for those arriving in the evening. You can have a light snack of bread, cheese, fresh fruit and a glass of local wine.
Breakfast supplies of cereals, yoghurt, milk, bread, butter, and homemade jams are provided so that you don't have to rush out to the shops on arrival.

Laundry facilities are available at the laundromat in nearby Alexandra.
