Cradled by rolling hills and neighbouring vineyards, the family-run Tipapa Estate is a breathtaking homestead offering an oasis of serenity an hour's drive from Christchurch. Once part of a 10,000-acre sheep station, this 19th-century estate radiates heritage charm through its white-washed timber cladding and four large and luxurious bedrooms, each offering breathtaking views. The proud owners have curated a welcoming environment that ensures an idyllic retreat for visitors seeking a peaceful weekend or a romantic escape.
Stroll through the extensive gardens dotted with orchards and cherry trees or mingle with new friends in the communal lounge and dining rooms. Warm summer days call for a dip in the outdoor pool while wintery nights invite a drink or two around the fireplace. Enjoy homecooked fare in the fabulous kitchen or ask the owners for their best local recommendations. When you want to explore further, venture down the road to stunning Motunau Beach, visit Hamner Spring Thermal Pools & Spa, located only an hour away, or take a road trip to Gore Bay and Cathedral Cliffs to admire the naturally dramatic coastline.
