my place is close to Mt Lyford Skiifield and hiking trails. You’ll love my place because of peace and seclusion, great vistas, unpolluted air and WATER. We are surrounded by predominately native Black Beech and Manuka bush in a unique alpine wilderness village. Its a great place to unwind in an artisan built log house. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
Mt Lyford is a Wilderness Village consisting of log homes only, on the side of the mountain some 600mtrs up, surrounded by a Black Beech and Manuka forest with many areas for hiking. Fishing, Hunting, 4WDing or just relaxing.

In winter our driveway which is steep in parts can be very icy so 4WD and chains are necessary. We often keep a vehicle parked up on the roadside and walk up. The driveway is gravel and is long also steep in parts.
If you have 4WD engage it my the ford. Manuel 1st gear with a reasonable pace, maintain your momentum, do not stop or you will not get started again. Keep coming until you see the house. Auto, low let the auto do the work and as above.
NO shops, 20 mins drive to nearest shop in Waiau. Both kaikoura and Hanmer Springs are 50mins - 1hr away. You will need to bring supplies.
There is a restaurant at the base of the mountain.
