Welcome to The Staging Post, a rustic, rural retreat in North Canterbury...


... near Cheviot providing B&B, comfortable glamping hostels for a group or family gatherings, as well as a peaceful camp ground. Located just 1½ hours from Christchurch, 50km south of Kaikoura (or east of Hanmer), The Staging Post is well placed for day trips to Hanmer or Kaikoura. It is the perfect punctuation mark on your way to Christchurch or the Blenheim vineyards (2 hours north). 

Have a look at these options! You can choose a rural retreat in our cosy and homely bed and breakfast, or perhaps get back to nature at the camp ground. Or bring a group to do some glamping & walks over the farm and along the coast, Please give Linda a call so we can make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible.

We’d love to share this place with you and yours. (Dogs included).

The Staging Post is truly a magical place to visit and we so look forward to our annual retreat each year in May. We have been visiting each year for the past 10 years and find it to be such a relaxing place to come and are always welcomed with warmth and kindness from Linda and Mike who tend to go out of their way to enable us to enjoy a fantastic time in such a tranquil and relaxed setting.
We love the rustic feel of the place...the beautiful bush and find The Staging Post to be so tranquil and relaxing, looking forward always to our annual visit.
