Orchard Cottage (c1910) is a private, sunny, self -contained guest house in its own colourful garden and a shared orchard which guests are welcome to enjoy. It is close to Diamond Harbour's town centre amenities, and just 10 minutes walk from the Lyttelton ferry. There is good swimming at the nearby beach which is a few minutes down a bush track from the cottage and lots of lovely clifftop walks and other beaches nearby.

The space
The interior of Orchard Cottage is light, fresh, clean and comfortable, although the bathroom is rather compact. In fine weather the French doors can be left open to allow fresh air and birdsong into the house and provide easy access to and from the garden and orchard. Fresh vegetables and fruit can be harvested by guests from the garden and orchard in season.
The cottage is sited on a sloping section and access is by steps from Purau Avenue. There is a roadside parking space nearby.

Where you’ll be

Diamond Harbour, Canterbury, New Zealand

Diamond Harbour is a small settlement set on sun-drenched cliffs overlooking Lyttelton Harbour opposite the Port of Lyttelton. There are lots of walking tracks to explore and a number of good swimming beaches nearby. "Preserved" cafe which serves meals is nearby and a small supermarket provides all other essentials. Diamond Harbour is a good base from which to explore the rest of Banks Peninsula's stunning landscapes.
Characterful Lyttelton, with its restaurants, bars and indie music scene is just a ten-minute ferry ride away and Christchurch city, with all its attractions and shopping, is a 35 minute drive.
