My wife and I went to Rata Escape for a long weekend to relax. Our prerequisites were to have a real fire, in the countryside, and have great views. Rata Escape has these in spades. We visited for three nights in mid-May, so it was cold but before the snow season, so was quiet. The view of the mountains from the front windows is beautiful, and we arrived just as the sun dipped behind them. The main house has a barbeque, a full kitchen, and woodburner set up ready to go and stock of wood to burn. The beds have electric blankets, so you're ready and set for a comfy stay. The biggest and closest town is Methven, about 20min drive away, with everything you need. There are numerous walks and hikes nearby should you wish. We went for a walk up Mount Sunday which I warn you is about an hour drive away, but staggering scenery. Located an easy 1 hour 20min drive from Christchurch, and close to the Mt Hutt ski area, it is perfect for skiers/snowboarders, or just for a chilled out weekend away. Thank you Elspeth and Judith!…
The Jaines are amazing hosts and made us feel right at home. The house is set in a fantastic location with stunning views, great treks just around the corner & and a lovely farm. Really do wish we had stayed longer!
The tranquil setting, the welcoming feel of coming home, the unbelievable views, even the sheep just through the fence, the helpfulness of the hosts. Our stay couldn’t have asked for anymore. Nothing was a problem for the hosts. Push bikes for our use, ideas and suggestions of all the activities in the area, rain or shine. We will be back. Thank you again to Elspeth and Judith.
