Welcome to our five-acre property in a secluded valley at the foot of Christchurch's Port Hills. With unspoilt views in every direction, yet within 20 minutes of central Christchurch, we know we're lucky to live here, so we've converted a historic barn into accommodation so that visitors to this amazing part of the world can enjoy it too. Crisp linen, characterful furnishings and privacy combine to make this a memorable escape for up to five guests in two separate or adjoining suites. The area has a lot to offer visitors too, with great cafes and restaurants, plus beautiful walks and cycle trails.
With several wedding venues on our doorstep, including our neighbours at the luxurious Otahuna Lodge, as well as Cossar's Wineshed, The Vineyard at Rossendale and Tai Tapu Church, the Redbarns is the perfect place for the couple and/or their guests before or after the special day. Every wedding is as unique as the couple in question, so rather than offering a one-size-fits-all package, we'd prefer to just have a chat about how we can help make your special occasion even more perfect.

Thanks so much. Red Barns is an awesome place to stay in Christchurch. Hope to come back sometime.
Thank you so much for a fantastic stay, we had a great time! We would love to come back again and really enjoy the place just the two of us without all of the hustle and bustle of the wedding. It’s an awesome awesome place!!
I just wanted to drop a line and say a big thank you for your hospitality. I had the most amazing stay at your beautiful place. Absolutely fantastic place. I really look forward to bring Vicky up for a stay sometime… thinking of whisking her away for a spot of Christmas shopping!
Awesome place, awesome location. We’ve stayed at The Red Barns twice so far, it’s really handy for weddings in Tai Tapu. Each time we have walked home from the reception in the moonlight, fallen into bed and woken up to birdsong and a delicious breakfast. Hard to beat.
“We wanted to stay somewhere different, close to the city but off the beaten track, and this place is really something special. Tai Tapu is a beautiful little village with lots of history and gems to discover. Waking up to the birds singing and the views was just wonderful. We had a lovely time, thanks guys. Hope we get to return one day.”
“Murray and Sally made sure our stay was really memorable and comfortable. The Red Barns are just amazing – heaps of old character but with a contemporary feel. We can’t wait to come back.”
