Our self-contained cabin has stunning views of Lyttelton Harbour and is close by to the awe-inspiring Orton Bradley Park. The Banks Peninsula is an outdoors playground, with plenty to do such as kayaking, mountain biking, walking, swimming. One night just isn't enough to explore all the attractions! Our cabin is fully equipped with its own bathroom and kitchenette. Our place would suit couples, solo adventurers or families with one small child.

The space
Our sunny cabin in Church Bay is just 35 minutes drive from Christchurch, with plenty of outdoor adventures to be had here. We are close to beaches, mountains, a canyon and a country park. We would suggest at least a 2- or 3-night stay, with a suggested itinerary of day one: Orton Bradley Park or a local beach (little known to tourists!), day two: walking up Mt Herbert or a boat trip to Quail Island, day three: exploring the pretty village of Diamond Harbour or checking out the quirky town of Lyttelton.

Where you’ll be

Diamond Harbour, Canterbury, New Zealand

Church Bay (and the neighbouring Diamond Harbour) are quiet semi-rural communities. There is one café, The Diamond Harbour Eatery, open daily 9am to 6pm, Thurs, Fri, Sat open 9am to late). There is a small supermarket "Four Square" at the bottom of our road (open daily 7am to 7pm). Orton Bradley Park (5km away) offers extensive walking and biking tracks. We are well-located for multi-day walks on the Banks Peninsula, including the Packhorse Hut and the Rod Donald Hut. Why not stay a night with us at either end of some tramping (leaving your big luggage securely with us); we can pick up and drop you off by pre-arrangement. We are also ideally situated for walking up Mount Herbert, the largest mountain on the Banks Peninsula. This walk takes approx. 6 hours round-trip. There are also local, shorter walks, including the cliff track walk, which offers spectacular views. There are at least two beaches within walking distance.
