LOCAL ACCOMMODATION SUGGESTIONS

Despite our name, we no longer have accommodation on site – The last room was converted from accommodation in the 90’s. We are however planning to build in the future. In the meantime here are just some of the many wonderful examples of local accommodation available. All sites offer great hosts, superb locations and welcoming Central Otago hospitality.

BANNOCKBURN HOUSE

Your gateway to the Southern Lakes.

 

Located to the south of Bannockburn village close to Cromwell lies your perfect getaway — Bannockburn House and Cottage.

Owned and operated by Chris & Julia Stephenson, the location is remote enough to remind you of days gone by whilst being close enough to everything you’d ever desire in a Central Otago holiday destination.

History surrounds the area and relics of gold mining days pepper the grounds. Gold tailings are visible from every aspect as are the steadily growing orchard trees including figs, pomegranates, almonds, apples, peaches and plums.

Bannockburn is famous for its viticulture and there are many wineries who offer hospitality second to none. Enjoy a picnic (take your own or purchase on site), a wine tasting or a 5 star lunch – the choice is yours. Most of the wineries are within a 5 minute drive, a 20 minute bike or a leisurely 30-40 minute walk for those wanting to stretch their legs.
