The Gates Country Lodge is nestled in the stunning farmland of inland North Canterbury, surrounded by fields and bordering on the Mason river.

It is perfectly located for touring the attractions of the scenic Alpine Pacific Triangle, which links the stunningly beautiful Hamner Springs thermal resort and health spa, the Waipara Valley vineyards and the whale-watching capital Kaikoura.

The Lodge is about one hour south of Kaikoura, one hour east of Hanmer Springs, and 45 minutes from Waipara.

Getting here couldn’t be easier, with Christchurch Airport just one and a half hours away by car. Getting away might be harder, because you won’t want to leave…
