“Sarah was a wonderful and helpful host and Castle Hill was as always a lovely location to visit. I highly recommend Sarah and her bach house at Castle Hill.”

Where is it?
Castle Hill is a 1 hour 10 minute drive from Christchurch. It’s a fantastic base to explore the craigueburn forest park and Arthur’s pass national park. There is an awesome system of single track mountain bike trails from your doorstep, plus beautiful walks through native beech forest and up onto the tops for the more adventurous.
Nearby there are several lakes for swimming and fishing (you need to get a license for this). If you would like kayaks or a paddle board we can loan these to you.
In the village itself there are tennis courts and a waterslide. At the bach we have tennis racquets and balls plus table tennis, badminton, table football, slack line and boules.
In the winter there is skiing at several fields, the closest being Porters and Cheeseman at 10 mins drive away, then there’s Broken River and Craigieburn 20 and 30 minutes away.
