The West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island is a wonderful untamed wilderness area that offers something special to travelers. In the north-west corner of the coast you will find a new walking/cycling track called The Old Ghost Road.
Nearby a perfect place to stay is New Creek Ferals.
This Cosy bach is only 3 km from the Ghost trail, overlooks the Buller River sleeps 5 but can accommodate 8, so would be great for a group to use to explore the area. Your host Marian has created a private eco friendly space just off the highway to Nelson. and invites you to enjoy her ten hectare block of bush and farmland.
New Creek Ferals is the latest listing on the Women Travel Accommodation network of women owned accommodation, offering a special welcome to women travellers.
The Old Ghost Road is one of several new cycleways that have been opened up on the West Coast – the other is the Wilderness Cycle Trail from Greymouth to Ross which we did last year. Later this year, the Old Ghost Road is definitely on my bucket list.
