The Flaxmill was originally built in the early 1940s as part of the war effort to produce linen. At the time Ireland and Holland were under attack so there was a shortage of linen. After the completion of the war, it was decommissioned and was later used for grain and hay storage for a farm.

In 2010 Lin & Gerry Thomson converted The Flaxmill into the stunning venue that it is today. The venue can seat up to 100 guests, has a large commercial kitchen and provides the tables, chairs, plates, cutlery and glasses, so all you need is some food, beverages and your guests!

Professional kitchen

The Flaxmill contains a commercial-grade kitchen large enough to keep any Gordon Ramsay-level caterer happy. Fully stocked with all the cutlery & crockery you may need.

Cocktail bar

A boutique cocktail bar complete with glassware is available. Just bring your own beverages or talk to the team who can coordinate it for you.

Exceptional location

Located in Oxford, New Zealand. A convenient drive from the beautiful South Island alps, multiple tourist activities and Christchurch city.
