Karetu Downs Farm Stay

Karetu Downs is situated approximately 63 km north of Christchurch and is a one hour drive from Christchurch airport. The property is Kiwi owned and farmed. Tourists can experience on farm activities- sheep shearing, feeding pet lambs, collecting farm fresh eggs and have your photo taken with Barney the donkey. We offer cosy private accommodation for tourists, travellers and families who want to relax and take in the peaceful surroundings of the New Zealand country side. The farm is 2000 hectares of some flat to rolling downs but mostly hill country land on which we graze sheep & beef cattle. 4WD tours available. Mountain bikes provided. Ideal for family groups and people who just want a quiet peaceful time away. Campervans welcome.
