    Loved the character of the barn, the great record collection and the spa pool!The barn was clean and tidy, easy to heat and the kitchen had everything we needed. Overall we had a great weekend relaxing in Waipara, and would definitely recommend it to others. Waipara is a great spot for a weekend away!

    A very beautiful old cottage, full of character, and fitted with everything you could possibly need. Everything was set up for a perfect stay, and the location in the middle of the wine region of North Canterbury, but just an hour from Christchurch is perfect too.
