Located a mere 30 minutes from Christchurch International Airport and a comfortable 90 minute drive to the access road for Mt Hutt Ski field, Seatonwood Villas can be found in a very quiet country setting on a small deer farm.
Seatonwood Villas - Farm Stay & B&B is the perfect place to launch your New Zealand holiday. We have wonderful outdoor areas where adults can relax or children can use up some excess energy, but viewing our deer and other farm animals is probably the most fun of all.
We are always available for a chat with our guests where we offer information about our fabulous country when required, at other times listening and learning much from our guests. This relaxed interaction is often the highlight of our guests stay; equally it is the highlight for us too.
We recommend a 3 night stay with us. Overseas travellers in particular have found a first night in such peaceful surroundings allows time to relax and adjust to NZ's time zone before venturing out on some of the many exciting and diverse experiences we are so fortunate to have on our doorstep.
While breakfast comes as part of the package, we can also provide evening meals. These can be booked at the time of making your reservation or by arrangement when you are here. POA
