Otahuna Lodge – a Relais and Chateaux luxury lodge outside of Christchurch, New Zealand

 Woodlands

Pine bark trails and flagstone paths wend their way through rambling woodlands which shelter fantails, bellbirds, wood pigeons and other birds throughout the seasons. These woods formed the basis of Otahuna’s rhododendron gardens, and many old specimens now exhibit their showy blooms at canopy height.
 

Among the trees, one might stumble upon historic remnants such as moss covered steps leading to the original frog pond, or a hidden settee where Heaton would sit in the afternoon and watch the musterers herd sheep on the hill.
