The Summit Lodge is set in 2 acres of gardens (in what started off as a sheep paddock - check out the evolution here). There is a herd of friendly alpacas on-site, free range chickens, an orchard and a large veggie garden. The garden is full of NZ native plants and a variety of birdlife is present. There are views beyond the gardens to rolling farmland, paddocks full of cows and sheep and there are often stunning sunsets. 

Take a walk up Admiral Hill or bring your bikes and go for a cycle ride.  The surrounding area is very pretty. Check out the Gallery for more pictures.
