Castle Hill Lodge

Garston is situated in a valley surrounded by the Hector Range and the Eyre Mountains. The Mataura river (famous for it's fly fishing and brown trout) and the Around The Mountains Cycle trail both run through the village. Food and Drink is available in Garston.

Nestled within 9 acres of mature trees, private gardens and spectacular 360 degree views is Castle Hill Lodge in the beautiful rural township of Garston 

This old Angler's Lodge is within walking distance of the sparkling upper Mataura River, world renowned for it's superb brown trout fly fishing. Also centrally located, so perfect for day trips to Queenstown, Milford Sound and Te Anau knowing that upon your return a warm welcome and home cooked food await you. 

Locally there is horse trekking, guided or freedom walking tracks and the Around The Mountains cycle trail is just over the main road. The Kingston Flyer steam train is 10 minutes away and beautiful Lake Wakatipu only 15 minutes

Stay close to home and get acquainted with some of the animals. They have Kune Kune pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, a very silly labrador dog called Berkley and a very giant cat called Hercules.

Each morning they serve a scrumptious full cooked breakfast to set you up for the day's activities and in the evening they can, upon request, prepare a home cooked meal for your return.

Castle Hill Lodge has 2 double/twin en-suite rooms (Borneo and Nepal room), 1 double/twin with private bathroom (S.E.

Whatever you decide to do Mark and Sharon look forward to meeting you.
