This peaceful retreat, not far from Christchurch city, invites you to slow down, breathe in the fresh air and appreciate your surroundings. You can enjoy the morning or evening sheep ‘muster’, relax in a hammock with a book, swim in the 12m indoor heated pool complete with flume (lessons also available), have a stretch session, watch the flames dance in the outdoor open fire…and much more.
Owned and run by Dan and Penelope, Abelfields provides you the opportunity to ‘just be’…for a weekend out of the city or a mid-week escape.
In your own ‘wing’ of the house, you can relax uninterrupted, enjoy sleeping in and start the day at a leisurely pace. We provide you a beautifully appointed room complete with a super comfy king-sized bed and en-suite to enjoy. You have exclusive use of a lounge with TV deliciously warmed by an ultra-low emission fire, plus an upstairs lounge where you can enjoy the afternoon sun and a beautiful view of the property and wildlife. A fridge, dual hot plate, jug, toaster, and the basics for hot drinks are all included in the kitchenette.
A continental breakfast is included. Sip your coffee while indulging in fresh home-made bread drizzled with honey from our Abelfields beehives.
There is also a large meeting room that makes for a great off-site option for work meetings.
Swimming, swimming lessons or a stretch session are an additional cost. Check the website for current rates.
