A little gem just 90 minutes from Christchurch, 20 minutes from Methven and five minutes stroll from the great coffee and famous sausage rolls at the Staveley Store.

As well as twin outdoor bath tubs, a snuggle couch on the veranda and a roaring fire inside this special venue also boasts a private movie theatre!  Just imagine strolling over to the woolshed with your favorite DVD (bring a couple with you), lighting the log fire, getting comfy under the blankets on the couch and watching a movie through the projector onto the big screen.

Speaking of treats a bottle of wine can await your arrival, then in the evening there is of course dinner…..yum!!  Your dietary requirements will be catered to but you can expect something along the lines of melt in your mouth venison, potato cake, fresh veg and salad followed by a delicious dessert.

Continental plus breakfast provisions can be ordered prior to arrival for you to prepare at your leisure, this maximises your privacy and allows for a sleep in!

For two couples travelling together wishing to book two cottages, there is another cottage only 80m away, yet they each have their own privacy from gardens and differing mountain views.

To add a touch of Romance to your getaway, be sure to add one of our Romantic Delights gift boxes to your booking.

For more activities to do in and around Canterbury while you are here we have complied a list of our personal recommendations to help you with your planning.
