Only 70 minutes drive from Christchurch on State Highway 73 towards Arthur's Pass, passing the Craigieburn & Torlesse mountain ranges. There are plenty of outdoor activities within minutes - skiing (Broken River, Porters, Mt Cheeseman and Craigieburn are all close at hand, with Mt Olympus, Temple Basin and Mt Hutt a little further away), climbing, tramping, rock climbing/bouldering, mountain biking (including the fantastic Hog's Back Track and Craigieburn Trails), walking, fishing, water skiing, caving, tennis, golf and a petanque area.

Lijo George
A wonderful home with lots of space, with onsite parking for two cars. Good enough for a large group seeking a warm stay in Castle Hill Village. Living area offers a wide scenery of hills to enjoy evening coffee. Hosts maintain very professional approach and are good communicating. Recommended.
Rosie Holmes
Great house for a big crowd. Has all amenities you need. Parking is a bit tight but plenty of room inside and out.
Kate Leighton
A lovely house and grounds in a great location. The kitchen is well equiped with a comfortable lounge We found there was plenty of room for the 9 people in our group to sleep and hang out. We found the place clean and tidy. It met all our needs and beyond. Thank you so much for making our long weekend at Castle Hill comfortable and easy. I would definitely recommend staying here for a large group and we look forward to our next visit in the future.
