    We are just down the road from the local airport where you can go skydiving if you wish! Mt Hutt is a short 40minute drive away with many walks/hikes around also.
    we can can suggest many great walks and scenic drives that are close by off the beaten track!
    Ashburton has some very nice cafes and restaurants all within walking distance.
    There is lots to do and see without having to travel too far. We quite often go on day trips around the area and would be more than happy to take you along with us.
