The Carriage at Rockwood Station

Self Catering / RD2

The Carriage sits in a spot where two streams join to create the Hororata River on Rockwood Station. The Carriage has a large deck area that enjoys beautiful, expansive views to Mt Hutt. It's a place to switch off.

The Carriage at Rockwood Station is just one hour and 15 minutes from Christchurch city and 25 minutes from both Darfield and Methven.

In 2019, hosts Ben and Cheryl purchased an old goods carriage and set about lovingly restoring and transforming it into a unique glamping experience. The Carriage is the second glamping retreat the couple have created after their highly successful Summer House.

The Carriage sits in a spot where two streams join to create the Hororata River. The carriage runs parallel to the river with a large deck area that enjoys beautiful, expansive views to Mt Hutt. It's a place to switch off, unplug and soak up the natural surrounds of the stunning high country farm. As the sun sets, you'll enjoy amazing technicolour skies and stunning cloud formations.

The Carriage has two bedrooms. It's perfect for either two couples or a family with up to three children. The main bedroom with ensuite has a queen-sized bed and at the other end of the carriage, a second bedroom has a double bed. There is room for one more small child on a built-in single bed in the second bedroom. 

With large glass doors in the kitchen and lounge area connecting you to the outdoors, The Carriage is a fantastic experience year-round. In the summer, explore the farm and enjoy a dip in the natural swimming hole in the river... The deck is a suntrap, the perfect place for a cool drink on a hot day. The outdoor dining area makes for an atmospheric alfresco dining experience. In the winter, it's warm, cosy and oozing with atmosphere... And the idea ski pad! Complete with utility room for ski gear - and a perfect view of the mountain to assess the conditions.
