A genuine NZ farm stay on a working sheep farm in the panoramic Lake Coleridge high country just 100kms from Christchurch city. 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.

The space
A perfect alpine getaway for families and groups wanting to experience farm life and the panoramic Lake Coleridge region only 100kms from CHCH city. Lamb feeding and handling is a highlight with children in the spring months (mid October - mid December). The Quarters are also ideal for guided tour groups wishing to have overnight accommodation after a Middle Rock farm tour.

The Shearers' Quarters consist of a main building and 2 exterior cabins. Inside the main building, each of the 4 bedrooms can be made up as doubles (superking) or as twin beds. There is one en suite bedroom with two other bathrooms shared between 3 bedrooms. Full laundry facilities and a BBQ available. Also a portacot and high chair for infants. A sofa bed in the living area can sleep an additional 2 people. The cabins are bedrooms only. Winter warmth is a feature! The property is fully heat insulated with a large log fire in the living area, ducted heating throughout the main building and standalone heating in each bedroom. Outside there is a large lawn area and plenty of room for car parking.

Groups booking the complex have exclusive use and will not have to share the facility with any other guests. Linen is included with this booking.

I share our wonderful property, Middle Rock, with my husband Bruce, my daughter Charlotte and her husband, Vince. Together we farm 7,000 sheep and run our farm touring and accommodation businesses. We are very fortunate to live only 1 hour's drive from Christchurch, in a locality surrounded by an abundance of recreational opportunities. Skiing in winter (same distance to 3 ski fields), the Mt Hutt Bike Park and boating, fishing and walking opportunities all year round. We have spent a lifetime developing our various enterprises and now derive much pleasure sharing our wonderful locality with those who visit.
