Take me to....
Descending from the “Dry Hills” of southern Marlborough a quite fantastic sight greets you – the stunning Pacific coastline of North Cnterbury! Flanked by the majestic Kaikoura Ranges on the landward side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, this is a trip of pure magic.
Buy your dinner absolutely fresh from a roadside crayfish stall. Go whale watching or swim with the dolphins at Kaikoura; ski at Mt. Lyford then head inland to the fabled hot pools of Hanmer Springs.
See the strange limestone formations and explore the wild rivers of the Hurunui or sample the wines of Waipara.
Prices from $210 to $260
2 rooms accommodating up to 4 guests
2 hours north of Christchurch 1hr 40 west of Kaikoura
Marchmont Gardens is a peaceful oasis situated between the two nines of the Hanmer Springs Golf golf course just 15 mins stroll to the village. There are two deluxe large adjoining units in their own private garden with magnificent uninterrupted vistas to the mountains.
