Once the residence of NZ Governor Ranfurly, an historic homestead offering something something quite special for discerning overnight guests...large upstairs bedrooms with ensuites.
Originally constructed as a wedding present, built by skilled craftsmen sourced from England to come and build it!
It is a venue too...for events of all types and sizes..whether it be a product launch, sales seminar, a wedding, receptions ( hall at the rear can seat 160 at dinner) family anniversary get togethers...even outdoor fund raisers.
History galore, acres of lawns and gardens, parking for 70 vehicles on site..but have had as many as 200 vintage cars call in all at once...cars everywhere on the lawns...
Built on rock and of local quarried stone, it has stood for 130+ years. a district icon.
A few minutes from Timaru town centre via Claremont Road.
