1.3km from Terrace Downs Golf Resort, close to Rakaia River and Lake Coleridge for fishing, 45 minutes to get to Mt Hutt skifield, close to many other activities. Great family holiday home accommodation or for a weekend break for two (only 1 hour from Christchurch). A two bedroom cottage which sleeps six (maximum), it is fully self contained and well equipped, with stunning views of Mount Hutt and the surrounding hills. It is off the road so is private and quiet other than farm activities nearby. Very sunny and warm, with a large fenced lawn area, sand pit, and plenty of room to park (including boats), car port for car, log fire for winter heating (wood supplied). Other close by activities include jet boating, fishing, ballooning, horse riding, and Methven village all within 20 minutes. Please note - sorry but no pets as the cottage is situated in the middle of a working farm. Check out our Facebook page.

Pleasantly welcomed after we arrived in the dark, to a warm house from a cosy fire. Basic accommodation, but clean and comfortable. Cathie was very helpful with the TV, shower and directing us on walks around the farm. Loved stoking up the fire and being in the crisp winter air. Lovely photo opportunities with the mountain back drop. Methven is a short drive away to the four square and a few eateries. Just a short drive from Christchurch, so a lovely getaway from town. I will remember this trip fondly.

What an amazing place to stay, lovely cottage, great views and Fantastic hosts. Kids loved feeding the Lambs with Cathie and Laura and we even got snow which made the kids holiday even more special.

We were on a nine week holiday in NZ from UK, Benlea was the first cottage we stayed in, we loved it so much we returned for a further few days the following month! The cottage is cosy, bright, with everything we could possibly need. A beautiful garden which compliments the incredible views of Mt Hutt, we saw the mountain in all its moods, coloured red at sunrise to looking dark and forbidding in stormy weather, quite magical. Cathie and family were so friendly, helpful and generous, it was a pleasure to stay at Benlea.

We cannot say enough about this place and the people, Cathie and her family were so welcoming and friendly. What an amazing place! It is perfect for children, our two year old was in his element with all the animals, sandpit, huge lawn etc. Everything you need to function in a home away from home, including a fantastic fire and views of the mountains. We had a ball, and would highly recommend this place! (We had a function at Terrace Downs which is a 3min drive to the club house from the cottage or 40min walk)

We stayed at Benlea in June 2011 and had a fantastic time. The views were amazing from every single window and the open fire kept the whole house warm. We were made to feel so welcome and we enjoyed the 'farm tour' which included feeding the pet sheep and meeting all of the farm dogs. Going outside to view the stars at night was incredible and us city-slickers got a bit scared in the very, dark night. The house is only a short drive into Methven which is also a great place to visit. We would love to come back again one day.
