Official Description (provided by the hotel)
CLAREMONT ESTATE AND NATURE PARK. Welcome to Claremont Estate and Nature Park, luxury lodge accommodation in the heart of the Waipara wine-growing region, Canterbury, NZ. Claremont is one of Canterbury's few historic stone homes - built in 1866 of hand-cut limestone, quarried on-site. Luxury Accommodation at Canterbury's Claremont Estate features elegantly furnished and graciously proportioned suites and rooms, and the charming Claremont Cottage which is perfectly suited to families. Claremont Estate allows you to escape from the world, to relax and indulge in a quiet country sanctuary. Yet when you stay at Claremont Estate, you will discover a fascinating world without even leaving the grounds - rich with history, geology and palaeontology; the exceptional landscapes and features found on-site attract interest across the globe. Fascinating natural wonders such as 65 million year old limestone spheres or the amazing "Bishop’s Head" - the natural rock sculpture who so proudly looks over the land are breath-taking sights. This award winning lodge is a sanctuary where you can get away from the world to relax and unwind in one of the most spectacular settings in the world. ... more   less
