Where is it?
Castle Hill Village is a purpose built recreational destination, with 75 holiday homes
situated on the lower slopes of the Cragieburn Range. It's usually very quiet, and midweek or off season we are often the only ones about apart from the three to four permanent residents and a couple of other families.
The village has both tennis and petanque courts, and a 9-hole golf course.
Six skifields are in the vicinity,(four within a 30 minute drive).
There are extensive walking and mountainbiking tracks through the forests and fly fishing for trout in the rivers and lakes(local guides available)
Lake Pearson,(motor boats banned)is ideal for kayaking and birdwatching such as the rare Crested Grebe.
At Cave Stream (5 minutes drive)is a local swimming hole. There you can also take head-torches and go walking upstream on a 20 minute caving experience.
Sculptural limestone tors at Kura Tawhiti are immediately adjacent to the village. These are internationally recognised as a world class bouldering destination, but are also a fantastic place to just wander around, play hide and seek with the kids or to picnic amongst.
Alpine mountaineering peaks exist within a 40 minute drive to Arthur's Pass, or for the family there are plenty of shorter walks of differing lengths and grades.
We have bikes/tobbogans/double and single kayaks/climbing equipment/golf clubs and tennis raquets for use.
