Location


Oxford is ideally situated for travellers while driving on the Inland Scenic Route 72. If you want to avoid Christchurch while transversing the South Island then Oxford is an ideal place to stop. We are 3 minutes drive from the centre of Oxford and off the Main street. Turn into Bay Road and you will find Bush Road about 800m on your left. We are 800m on the right, just on the bend and 20m off the seal. Our home is situated at the top of our drive 180m from the Road.

Safe parking and away from traffic noise.

We often have guests say they wish they had known about our location so they could stay an extra night or two, go over to Arthurs Pass for a day trip, up to Hanmer and enjoy the hot pools and return.



New Zealand


While Christchurch City and Christchurch Airport are some 60km away, it is an easy drive through Belfast ( 45 minutes ) depending on the time of day.  Early in the morning and from 4pm it is rush hour in the city so it could take longer..

1.5 hrs to Hamner Springs, 2.45 hrs to Kaikoura. Easy access to the West Coast SH73, 3 hrs to Hokitika, 2 hrs to Akaroa, 1 hr to Mt.Hutt.
