Learn about your surroundings
Thirty minutes from Christchurch, WagonStays Luxury Escapes is in a secluded corner of a 126 acre farm in Selwyn, one of the earliest settled districts in Canterbury.
Guests can do as little or as much as they like during their stay. Those who are able to tear themselves away from the comfort and luxury of the Wagon are encouraged to discover the farm setting. Dog lovers will enjoy meeting Bud, the friendly Labrador.
The crops grown on the working farm include various small seed crops and golden fields of wheat with an adjacent paddock home to over 100 ewes and lambs.
Just a stone's throw away is the 150 year old Courtenay School that is well worth a wander around and a couple of minute's drive will take you to the Waimakariri River. There are several entrances to the river and plenty of good spots for fishing, walking & swimming.
WagonStays' location in the heart of the Canterbury Plains is perfect for relaxation so bring a book or enjoy one of our DVDs. Local activities include horseriding, jetboating and skiing or snowboarding during the winter months. Jasmine and Mike can assist with information and bookings.
