Welcome to our 5-acre property in a secluded valley at the foot of Christchurch’s Port Hills, just outside the small township of Tai Tapu and only 20 minutes from central Christchurch. We know we’re lucky to live here, so we’ve converted a historic agricultural barn into beautiful boutique accommodation. Crisp linen, comfortable furnishings and complete privacy combine to make this a memorable escape in two separate suites, which can be combined for larger groups. The area has a lot to offer visitors too, with great cafes and restaurants on the doorstep, plus beautiful walks and cycle trails.
A luxurious rural B&B experience
If you’re interested in medium/long-term accommodation, please contact us directly to discuss.

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, Tai Tapu Church, and Pemberton in Prebbleton, Redbarns is the perfect place for the couple and/or their guests to celebrate the occasion.
We know that every wedding is as unique as the couple themselves, so contact us to find out how we can accommodate your group and make your special day even more perfect.
