Erica (Ricky) and Andrew extend a truly warm welcome to their home where you’ll enjoy your own space in the “Duck Flat” a spacious self-contained studio unit adjacent to the family home, set in an idyllic established garden setting with adjacent farmyard.
Rivendell is situated on the outskirts of the delightful town of Geraldine, New Zealand (which is only a two hour drive from Christchurch, as well as being on the Central South Island Tourist route for people travelling on to Mt Cook or the lakes and Queenstown) in a secluded spot with beautiful gardens, just as with Tolkien’s Rivendell in the Lord of the Rings.
We offer you a peaceful and tranquill stay with the chance to unwind and relax without the crowds that you find in other tourist towns. You can
take the time to wander our property and meet our animals, visit some of the local attractions such as the local cafe scene, golf courses, historical cinemas and jam and cheesemaking factories, or just sit back and be pampered while reclining uninterrupted in our picturesque gardens.
Kiwis looking for a break over the winter months? Why not stay with us and take a decent break away from everything. We have a spa pool and all the comforts of home, but also offer peace and quiet and the chance to escape all the pressures of the real world for a night or two.
