Middle Rock is an excellent getaway for small group workshops and seminars. A feature of the living area is the large dining table that seats 12, ideal for meetings and seminars. There is also close proximity to Terrace Downs Golfing Resort for groups who do not wish to self-cater.

Small Guided Travel Groups:

An increasing market for Middle Rock is small guided travel groups often seeking a farmstay stop between Christchurch and Lake Tekapo. For these groups with fluctuating numbers and room compositions, a second house on the property can be used for any overflow.
