Accommodation is a your own large space which includes a lounge, kitchen, a large bedroom with a queen and single bed. There is also a second room with a double bed. Bathroom is accessed from the veranda. It has a good wood burner and plenty of firewood is provided. There is also a heater in the main bedroom.
We have 3 young children so we expect our visitors to be good with children. We are an active family, like to keep fit. We are up early getting children off to school and going to work and expect people can work unsupervised. Volunteers can come into town when I am travelling in and go to places of interest while I am in town. The train station is 20 minutes from our home so I can drop you here if you are wanting to go to Wellington (1 hour 20 minute train ride from Masterton).
