Miners Arms is an idyllic 10 acre lifestyle property on the western edge of Christchurch, only 10 minutes from Christchurch International Airport, and well placed for the city, train station, many tourist attractions, eateries and shopping centres.

We have close and hassle-free access to the main roads north, south and west out of Christchurch, and so are an ideal touring base for Canterbury.
