Fodor's Expert Review Old Glenmark Vicarage
161 Church Rd., Waipara, Canterbury, 7483, New Zealand
Once a real vicarage, Old Glenmark is now a funky rustic accommodation suitable for families, with lots of rough-sawn timber and colonial trimmings, providing a very comfortable base while touring the area. The Wicked Vicar, the Vicar's Mistress, and the Divine Daughter are not members of the staff at this pleasant Victorian homestay, but wines are produced from their small vineyard. There's a full kitchen, bar, and sound system, an outdoor fire pit and an indoor hot tub. This place is popular with local Cantabrians so book ahead.
- central to most Waipara wineries and restaurants
- on-site boutique vineyard
- close to busy State Highway 1
