The Summer House at Rockwood Station is just one hour and 15 minutes from Christchurch city and 25 minutes from both Darfield and Methven.
The Summer House was designed by hosts, Cheryl and Ben, to be a peaceful retreat... an oasis of calm for busy lives... Somewhere to switch off, unplug and soak up the natural surrounds of their stunning high country farm.
The accommodation consists of a large single room with kitchen, bedroom and lounging all sharing the same space. Large glass sliding doors open out from the sitting area onto a surrounding deck. A bathroom, with a luxurious, deep bathtub is accessed from the deck outside.
An outdoor fire-place and beautifully landscaped sitting area, sits right next to the Rockwood Stream that runs immediately in front of the Summer House. You can hear the gentle flow of the water over the rocks as you sip your cool drink in the summer heat, or hot chocolate in the winter months.
The bird-life surrounding the summer house is incredible. Bell birds, wood-pigeons, fantails and kingfishers are regular visitors. The bush walk on the property takes you through 100 acres of native bush, and the beautiful woodland garden of the nearby, historical Rockwood homestead is a delight to explore
In the summer, enjoy a dip in the swimming holes up and down the river... In the winter, cosy up and tuck yourself away for a few days - maybe even enjoying some snow fall while you're there!
