Welcome to Miners Arms - our idyllic rural 10 acre lifestyle property on the western edge of Christchurch, with easy access to all routes north, south and west. We are 10 minutes' drive from Christchurch International Airport, and only a short drive from the city, many tourist attractions, eateries and shopping centres.

Lorna and Steve welcome you to our slice of paradise

We enjoy meeting people from many countries, and sharing our property with them. We aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and a great experience.

Relax in our attractive, comfortable first floor suite which accommodates 1-2 guests.

You will have a queen bedroom, full bathroom, and your own comfortable lounge/diner/kitchenette, opening out onto a private balcony with seating, overlooking the paddocks and garden.

A farm tour is included in your stay, and then you can wander as you like. We have paddocks, woodland, orchard and garden to explore, and our sheep and alpacas are always hopeful our guests will want to meet and hand feed them.

If you click on our video link to the left you can see them featured on TV's Animal Academy a few years ago. Sadly we don't have the dogs or chickens now, but you will still have a good idea of what we have here.
