What is a Bach…
A “bach” also called a bachelor pad, or a crib in the South Island of New Zealand, is a small, often modest holiday home or beach house. We were fond of the many bach’s we saw whilst travelling the South Island and emulated the concept here in Kenilworth.
Little River Bach is a small yet comfortable holiday cottage located adjacent to our sister property – River Oaks on the Mary – yet sufficiently removed to offer privacy. It overlooks green fields, Kenilworth Bluff and fronts the Mary River (100m from the door). Words cannot describe the serene views, so do look at the photos.
The cottage is lovingly restored and furnished in a country farm house style, with sleeping for up to 4 people, one bathroom, lounge | dining | kitchenette and a deck with private garden. The Little River Bach makes for a great base to explore the Mary Valley, enjoy water pursuits on the river, visit the rainforests, waterfalls and Kenilworth Village.
