Property Description

We are one hour from Christchurch International Airport.

Our sunny spacious home, which is just off State Highway One in Ashburton, is situated in a beautiful, large and sheltered garden by a stream, where you can enjoy peace and tranquility.

After offering hospitality for 16 years on Carradale Farm, we have now retired from Carradale Farm in the country to Carradale Manor in the town where we will continue to operate with those same high standards.

We offer either a fully cooked breakfast, or continental breakfast, served with delicious home made jams and preserves.

For your convenience tea/coffee making facilities, and electric blankets are for use in all rooms. Internet access available.

As we have both travelled extensively in New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, Europe, North America, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Vietnam and Singapore, we would like to offer hospitality to fellow travellers. Our hobbies include meeting people, travel, reading, photography, gardening, sewing, cake decorating, rugby, cricket, Jim belongs to the Masonic Lodge and Karen is involved in Community Affairs including Probus.

For young children we have a cot and highchair available.

"Jim & Karen were the most extraordinary hosts. Karen was definetely the best chef during our 2 weeks in NZ. Wonderful lifestyle, most interesting & informative conversation. Unfortunately only 1 day & 1 Night, wish it was longer!"
