Overview

Photos and Description of this Peel Forest holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 11)

This 3 bedroomed house is ideally situated for a wonderful family holiday or getaway. It is only an hour and a half drive from Christchurch and a perfect stop over on your way to the mountains and lakes. Geraldine offers a wide range of cafes, wine bars and restaurants and even has it's own cinema and upgraded heated outdoor swimming pool. There is a childrens playground and skate park only 2 minutes away and there is also a golf course, tennis courts and some beautiful bush walks.

From the main street it is a mere five-minute stroll into Talbot Forest - a native forest with its breathtaking views over plains and mountains. Geraldine is an ideal spot to base yourself for day trips to Peel Forest, Te Moana gorge, Mt. Cook or fishing on the local rivers. The Rangitata River (home of world class white-water rafting and salmon fishing) is not far away. Here you can see some of the most spectacular alpine and high country scenery in New Zealand. It?s not difficult to see why Lord of the Rings producer Peter Jackson chose this superb valley as an important location in his films.

House is great for the larger groups. Great location, just short walk to main street and local playground/ school for the children. Fire makes it cosy.
