Our recently refurbished Shearers' Quarters give exclusive use to each group booking, even if there are only 2 guests. The Quarters sleep 8 - 10 in the main building and an additional 4 persons in 2 adjoining cabins. Beds are illustrated as Queens (in fact super-kings) but all rooms can be split to twin shares.

We had a lovely stay at Middle Rock. It’s in a beautiful, quiet setting. The fire was lit when we arrived which was so nice. The place itself is cosy, spacious and sparkling clean, I couldn’t fault it. I would definitely stay here again and wished we could’ve stayed longer!

Only one hour's drive from Christchurch Airport, and it's a special and nice place to stay. The Lake Coleridge is amazing, tranquil and beautiful. There are also many activities available nearby. Lyn is a super nice host, let my daughter play with sheeps. Highly recommend.
