Stay With Us – North Canterbury Accomodation, Farm Stay, Bed & Breakfast Country Lodge

Located in the heart of North Canterbury, Lovat Downs Bed & Breakfast Country Lodge is perfectly situated, surrounded by a huge variety of North Canterbury activities. It 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 the main highway.
All four of our guest bedrooms are large, giving you ample space, with your own ensuite. One of our rooms is ideal for the family (with one double and two single beds). The remaining three rooms are double.

After a day of sightseeing, adventure or shopping, come and enjoy an evening of relaxation. You can even take a dip in our pool on a scorching Canterbury Summer evening.
For those who are interested, we can serve you one of our home-grown venison meals. We have been running a venison business from our farm for the last ten years.
Lovat Downs Bed & Breakfast Country Lodge is a beautiful character home, built from Alexander Schist, brought in from Otago.

If you are looking for a special romantic getaway, we are just down the road from the famous Tipapa Woolshed wedding venue.

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.
