Lovat Downs - Bed & Breakfast, Country Lodge

“The Perfect Country Getaway!” (Trip Adviser, 2014) - Farm Accommodation in the Heart of North Canterbury

Welcome to Lovat Downs Bed & Breakfast Country Lodge, in the heart of North Canterbury’s Greta Valley. Being surrounded by a huge variety of North Canterbury activities, Lovat Downs is your ideal base if you want to try out the region’s wide range of attractions – from the hot pools and skiing in Hamner, to the wine trails and vintage railway in Waipara, to the crayfishing at Motonau Beach.

Lovat Downs Bed & Breakfast Country Lodge sits amid a fully-working 140-hectare deer farm. With a 1km-long driveway, we can offer our guests the luxury of complete peace and quiet with no audible traffic and no visible streetlights, despite being located on State Highway 1.
With the main highway temporarily shifted to the long, narrow, winding inland route, we are an ideal place for the weary traveller to take a break, rather than attempting the full trip between Picton and Christchurch and beyond, in one day.
You will find us only 1 hour north of Christchurch and 1 hour south east of Hamner Springs, and when the main highway north is fully reopened, you have only about an hour and a quarter drive to Kaikoura.

We are just down the road from the famous Woolshed at Tipapa, so we are close at hand if you need wedding accommodation.

Guests can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome, a home-away-from-home feeling, and all of the essential comforts you need to make your visit enjoyable.

“Lovely farm styled house that was perfect for our holiday!”

Lovely and close to a family wedding , room for all of us, the rooms were huge and clean with comfy beds and John our host very accommodating with full use of the house. In the middle of a farm so very safe and peaceful.

“Weekend Wedding”

We loved our room, it was very large, modern & clean. Also our bathroom was massive with its own spa bath. The service was ideal, very down to earth hosts … and nothing was a problem. The B&B is in the middle of a farm which was very peaceful, ideal location on state highyway one and only an hour away…
