Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were only visiting because it is on the way between Kaikoura and Christchurch to enjoy this beautiful reserve.

Peaceful. Nice walks. Sat under a huge kowhai tree and watched a fat lazy wood pigeon look at us with disgust before flying off..

A beautiful reserve with mature tree plantings masses of spring flowering bulbs and arguably the most attractive and appealing country cricket ground in Canterbury. Plenty of history too as it was the site of ready money Robinsons mansion house. Several good walking trails with information and views.

The Cheviot Domain has history, lovely walks and lots of Spring bulbs flowing in September. It is definitely worth a visit.

Fantastic cricket oval in the middle of the domain. Great place to stop and have lunch and rejuvenate before heading south. Lovely old trees and great walks too.

Most people visit Cheviot because its on the way between Christchurch and Kaikoura. If you are travelling that way stop at the weekend Cheviot market and buy some local handmade goods. I don't recommend swimming in the Jed River but do explore the area.

Sure it's just a reserve but it's a great spot to take a wander or a picnic. A little bit of local history is displayed at the cricket club pavilion and the 'ruins' of the old homestead. But I enjoy getting lost in the trees - there are many different pockets to explore down the mystery tracks and you can take your dog. The daffodils in springtime are something special!

have visited several times over the past years and enjoy the Spring, Summer and Autumn there. Site of the original Cheviot homestead of which only the foundations remain. The Mature trees are a highlight. The walking trail is a loop from the nearby town of Cheviot and can take a couple of hours
