    Little Port Cooper School was cozy well equipped little hut set in an award winning location. So close to Christchurch yet it gives you a real feeling of solitude.

    The old school house is basic and would not suit everyone, but it was just what I like and quite adequate. Heaps of history in the bay, great beach and plenty of great hill walks, to Adderley Head, around the shoreline and of course the walk in and out from Camp Bay.

    The hike is really good, through farmland up on the hills with stunning views of Lyttelton Harbour. The cottage is very cute and functional. Shame our stay was shortened and we didn't enjoy it as much as we wanted to (due to puppy drama) but it is definitely a fantastic weekend gateway to relax away from the busy city life! And so close to Christchurch too! Recommend hiking up the hill in the dark to see the sun rise over the harbour, magical!
