Hi JudithK We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Lantern Court and we look forward to you returning so you can get to explore more of the Reefton area. There are some beautiful walks, fishing, Rafting trips or just a relaxing sit by the river. Once here you can park your car and everything is within walking distance or it is only an hour to visit the other attractions of the West Coast. We look forward to seeing you again. Best Wishes Bronwyn
