There aren’t many places to stay in this region, I think it’s too near Christchurch as many of the wineries seem to accommodate coach trips out from the city. We certainly fell on our feet and we stayed two nights in the barn (room for a party, but just the two of us). Quirky and delightful, with private outdoor space. If you want a more conventional room, then stay in the main house. We had cooking facilities, almost a necessity as places to eat aren’t open in the evening or are a drive away, not a good idea if staying in a wine region. Damian was a generous host - our breakfast supplies for one morning did us for two. His Divine Daughter Riesling was the best we’d tasted, before or since. Sadly only obtainable from him. Free use of washing machine and drying was a much appreciated bonus.

After a couple of days walking and nights of camping at Dept Conservation sites we felt like some rest and comfort. We found the Old Glenmark Vicarage completely by chance and it was fantastic. The hot spa, well-equipped kitchen and super comfortable and warm bedding made it perfectly comfortable. What we really enjoyed was walking around the property - the century old Vicarage, the orchard, the vineyard, the herb and vegetable garden - and sitting in the sun by the pool or in the rocking chair reading. We ended up staying an extra night and felt completely rested and relaxed. Thanks Damien for your warm hospitality and for letting us feed the lambs - another highlight of our stay.

Loved this character filled barn, very spacious and filled with eclectic objects. Damian is a great host, provided breakfast ingredients for a country style big breakfast with eggs from the chickens on the property.He even lit the fire for us. The hot spa was an unexpected treat on quite a cold day. Loved the Wicked Vicar wines too.

Self-contained B&B accommodation in the old barn, which has been decorated in rather charming fashion with a theme to most rooms and various old memorabilia and artefacts such as irons and is set in lovely grounds. We practically walked in, having abandoned our booked hotel due to extra animal life in the room. Luckily the barn was available and our host full of recommendations and able to conjure up the ingredients for a breakfast next day as well. Great night's sleep!

The Vicarage has the "Wow" factor!! Huge and gracious with sun-filled verandas, it is hard to believe that such a grand home was built for a Vicar. Around the home is a small vineyard and the wines produced from these grapes have fantastic names like "The Vicar's Mistress" and "The Divine Daughter". A very relaxing place to stay with extremely comfortable bed.
