My house is an old 1882 homestead in old garden setting which is open to walk around. There is alot of history here with The Cameron Blockhouse right outside the gate open to visit .I have a herb nursery which is also open to walk around. I have lovely views and its peaceful. People find it relaxing here . Its nice quiet accomodation, with its own entrance and parking space and also close to town . I have two dogs who are friendly and quiet and not in the bedroom space . The herbs that i grow i make into dried herb products, salt rubs herb mixes and vinegars, which can be purchased , just ask me :)
I grew up here and love the old place . Its nice to share it . I enjoy my garden and i am growing the herb buisiness which is a fun challenge. I love the country so this is a great place for me . But close to town means i have the best of both worlds.
Whanganui has a myriad of things to do ! We have artist studios , an observatory, museum , great saturday market, there is a walk around the rivers bridges which can include a steep climb up the hill to the tower ! The view is well worth the climb. We have the most coffee shops per capita and restaurants are plentiful. The info centre is a good first stop.
