Peel Forest is a unique, pristine and beautiful part of New Zealand, just north of Geraldine on the South Island - the perfect place to relax, recharge, reconnect. The Lodge is very well equipped for families and small groups for a peaceful getaway, on a self-catering basis, with delicious breakfast provisions provided. The Peel Forest area has a lot to offer; walks among heritage native bush on one of the many DOC tracks, horse trek adventures, dining at the boutique Greenman Cafe, craft shopping in Geraldine (just a 20 minute drive away) and much more. You can do as little or as much as you want while at the Lodge - hanging by the large open fireplace, listening to birdsong or soaking in the outdoor hot tub, are all activities to feed the soul. ...Peel Forest is a unique, pristine and beautiful part of New Zealand, just north of Geraldine on the South Island - the perfect place to relax, recharge, reconnect.

About the neighbourhood
The Lodge surroundings are private and peaceful, other than the chorus of native birds which are in abundance in one of the few pieces of original ancient native podocarp forest left in New Zealand. Set alongside the Rangitata River, a drive up into the Two Thumb range is a must. Look over the river towards Mt Potts where you will see the setting of Edorus from Lord of the Rings.
Getting around
Within a one-hour drive (heading north or south) you can ski at no less than five different ski fields and skate at 2-3 rinks. The award-winning Mt Hutt to the north and Roundhill at Lake Tekapo, to the south, are particular favourites.
