Castle Hill Village from Wuthering Heights

Stay at The Doug Log House

Built from solid Douglas Fir logs, with a strong emphasis on good passive solar design coupled with plenty of unique quirks, our warm and cosy holiday house sleeps 2+ families in comfort, and serves as a perfect base to explore the Castle Hill Basin and further afield, with a myriad of tracks (tramping and biking), ski-fields, rivers/streams, mountains, etc, all waiting for you, topped off with plenty of fresh air, calm weather and clear skies.

Castle Hill Village, Canterbury NZ

A great find and a perfect family retreat. Us pack of Aussies loved The Doug and Castle Hill. We are already planning the next trip back; it will be longer so that we can explore more of the area and enjoy this wonderful place.
