Hours: 8am to 6pm

Lynton Downs Farm is nestled into the hills up the Inland Road in Kaikoura. Stay on this sheep and beef farm with its rich and interesting history.


Guests have different accommodation choices and the opportunity to experience what it is like to live on a real New Zealand farm, in all weathers and in all the seasons of the year. Stay in the comfortable Farm House Apartment, part of the historic and very charming family home. The Quarters, once home to the many shepherds and farm characters of the past, still retains an air and feeling of times gone by. It is quirky, fun, full of stories and has a real farm atmosphere with special surprises for all ages to enjoy. Lynton Downs is not just a place to stay but a place to experience and to relax. As farmers on this land, our wish is to share this with others, and our hope is that all our guests can take away a little bit of Lynton Downs in their hearts as it is ‘a place where one can simply just be.’
