Company information

Mt Cook Station is a 2500 hectare high country property. The Miles family are a young family who love welcoming people to our special place. Tahlia is 2.5 years old, Peter 5 years old and Lukas 11 years old. We farm cattle and have a few pet merino sheep. The farm itself is covered in wilding pine which we are logging and restoring back to farmland.

Property information

The shearers quarters is a very rustic comfortable house. Located just 500 meters from the main homestead they were used to house the shepherds/shearers who worked the farm years ago. The exterior is old and original however the interior is new and refreshing. There is outdoor seating with views over the garden/pet animals and Tasman River/southern alps. A short walk away are amazing views of Mount Cook. There are 5 bedrooms with all shared facilities including the kitchen, dining, lounge and bathrooms. Very spacious areas. Please note there is limited to no cell phone coverage and Wifi is limited. We live in the middle of nowhere, however you are invited to walk tracks through the farm.

Neighbourhood information
