My place is close to outdoor activties as we are on the side of a mountain 20mins from the skifield with hiking at the back door. You’ll love my place because of It is a Log Chalet with an unusual spacious internal design, the location is fantastic for those who value the outdoors, peace and privacy. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. Obviously mountains in NZ do not exist in townships. We do not have any shops here.
Both Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura are approx an hours drive.

The house is situated a a very peaceful location and the accommodation is excellent. The host is very hospitable and we thoroughly enjoyed her company in the evenings. We would not hesitate to recommend staying in Mt Lyford.

Very nice chalet with a really beautiful view. Clean and tidy room with an ensuite bathroom. Stephanie shared with us her kitchen and her living-room with a fireplace. It is easy to find, however, the driveway is a bit of a challenge.
