Location

If you enjoy staying in the vicinity of historic accommodation, it doesn’t get more enchanting than the stunning 5-star Larnach Castle, home of the Barker family who have spent over 40 years restoring the building and its 14 hectares of gardens and grounds. It also offers a tranquil and rural setting just 20 minutes from the centre of Dunedin city, and is easy to get to from Dunedin airport which is about 30km away.

Rooms

Although guests aren’t able to stay in the castle itself, there are various options all situated within the grounds, just 500m from the castle itself. The Camp Estate is a small country house-style building next to the castle offering five rooms, all luxuriously decorated in a classic style with fireplaces and views of the surrounding countryside. Guests can also choose to stay in Larnach Lodge, also in the grounds of the castle where the stables used to be, with harbour, ocean and Peninsula views. This offers 12 themed rooms, each of which have en-suite bathrooms, heaters, Wi-Fi, Sky TV, tea and coffee-making facilities, fridge, hair dryer and car parking.

Activities

All guests enjoy complimentary access to the castle and its gardens – there’s also an audio tour available too if they want to learn more about this fascinating building and its history. Dunedin city with its historic architecture, shops, restaurants and attractions is just 20 minutes away, or if you want to get to more about the surrounding region, there are various tours on offer, including to wineries and regional food producers.

Dining

Although you can’t stay in the castle itself, guests can enjoy dinner here, the Castle Dining Room. It’s not a conventional restaurant, but offers a three-course table d’hôte menu served house party style to all guests at one sitting, offering a chance to meet other guests. The menu reflects traditional New Zealand style cuisines with all ingredients sourced locally. There’s also a large selection of wines from the castle’s cellar to choose from. A traditional Christmas dinner is also served if you’re staying over the festive period.
