Mt Lyford Holiday Homes


Make your next dream holiday a mountain escape

Experience the charm and character of the mountain village of Mt Lyford in the midst of the majestic mountains of the Kaikoura Ranges. You can escape from the crowds here, it’s peace and quiet, space and nature. Authentic log cabins, eco lodges and glamping huts offer a choice of accommodation for any size group. 

Spend a great holiday that can be both active and relaxing, whatever you choose. Take the time for doing nothing just enjoying the view, a good book, maybe a woodfired hot tub or sauna.

Or find your relaxation in swimming in a crystal clear mountain lake, hiking and biking, and of course skiing – there is something here for everyone.

Meet Your Hosts

Ross and Claudine Barnes, owners of Mt Lyford Holiday Homes, believe it’s a privilege to live in a beautiful place like New Zealand and especially Mt Lyford. They love the outdoor opportunities this village brings with it from tramping, mountain biking, skiing, ice skating or just going for a leisurely stroll.

Ross’ efforts over the years have been focussed on making areas accessible through walking tracks, like the Council Reserve Track on top of Mt Lyford Village and Irina’s track.
We are committed to providing a sustainable and eco friendly service. Our design of the eco lodges is the prime example of the combination of quality with sustainability.
