Country space only 15 minutes from town. Just 2 minutes from the airport (don't worry we seldom get the planes over head!) and right at the junction of all road routes in and out of Christchurch. This is a great setting to enjoy the feeling of being in the country but with the convenience of easy access to town.

Our spacious country retreat is within the City boundary. Situated 2 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from central Christchurch it is a great base from which to explore the Canterbury region whilst being conveniently placed for those all important games.
The property is 5 acres of paddocks and gardens with a heated outdoor swimming pool and shaded verandah for outdoor relaxation.

Horses and sheep add to the rural environment and chickens provide fresh free range eggs.

We have 2 room options, The Stables and The Verandah.
Standard accommodation rate includes breakfast. We can provide, dinner, picnics, drinks or other provisions by arrangement. You name it, we can probably do it!
