‘Somerset’ beach house – Riverton

‘Somerset’ has been the Anderson family holiday home for over 60 years. Only 20 metres from the sea, the house overlooks Taramea Bay and the mouth of the Aparima River harbour.

Spend a day watching the tide rise and fall and the fishing boats return from a day at sea. If you are tempted to have a swim, one of the safest swimming beaches in the country is right at your front door. Walking the beach is popular, as is exploring the Riverton Rocks coastline and testing the local surf. There are a number of other good walks on shore and in bush nearby.

Riverton/Aparima was one of the first places the earliest European sealers, whale hunters and flax traders met local Maori and began settling permanently. Te Hikoi Southern Journey Heritage Museum tells the stories of these and other settlers, from Chinese goldminers to timber workers and farmers from the British Isles and elsewhere. The museum is a great place to start the Riverton-Aparima South Coast Heritage Trail, which takes in scenery, beaches and historic sites

‘Somerset’ is fully equipped for guests to self-cater. Breakfast food can be supplied by arrangement.

There are also good restaurants close by, and the Taramea Bay fish and chip shop serves fresh blue cod worthy of Riverton’s status as a fishing harbour.



Riverton ‘Somerset’ $150 per night with reduction for longer stays.

Minimum stay of 2 nights.
