Welcome to Hydrangea Cottages

Secluded, stylish accommodation at the Pancake Rocks.

Hydrangea Cottages is the perfect place to rest and relax on the West Coast of New Zealands South Island. Offering secluded, spacious and stylish accommodation within sight of New Zealand’s spectacular Pancake Rocks, Hydrangea Cottages provides comfort, convenience and a quintessential Kiwi touch for discerning travellers who can enjoy coastal views, on-site limestone formations, native birdsong, and the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep at night. Situated on an elevated terrace overlooking the Tasman Sea, and surrounded by the Paparoa National Park, each of the six cottages is unique in its design and orientation. With options from studio units for solo guests or couples, to multiple-room family houses for up to 10 people, Hydrangea Cottages offers a range of accommodation to enable you to rest and replenish. A deserted wild surf beach is just a short walk away down the driveway, and the Pancake Rocks are 600m away - easily walkable. We are only accepting bookings from fully vaccinated guests. If you need to cancel your booking due to Covid 19 alert levels, a full refund will be given.
