WINTER TIME IS HERE !!!
We are in very close proximity to 3 fantastic Ski fields !!!!!!!
PORTERS HEIGHTS SKI FIELD 46 mins 52 Kms away
MT HUTT SKI FIELD 1 hour, 52kms away
CRAIGIEBURN SKI FIELD 1 hour, 68kms away

If skiing isnt your thing then what about exploring:
WASHPEN FALLS 25 kms 20 mins away described as 'a pocket of paradise where Moa once roamed' and offers a unique outdoor experience in a breathtaking natural setting. This fascinating walk starts at The Old
Woolshed and takes you through an ancient Volcanic Canyon filled with lush Native Bush and wonderful birdlife (2 hours mod fitness loop track )

CASTLE HILL 51 km away 41 mins The grand limestone rock battlements of Kura Tawhiti led early European travellers to name the unique area CASTLE HILL. The track loops its way around magnificent limestone rock formations but the joy in the area is heading off the track and exploring at your own pace the natural cultural historic and recreational values.

I lead a busy life running a small Gift Shop in Darfield but if at home can usually be found pottering in my rambling garden.
During your stay
Your accomodation is separate and private, feel free to wander around the garden and smell the roses or sit under the trees and read your favourite book. Dependant on weather of course !!!!
