A taste of Cheviot hospitality might be just what you need on the road between Christchurch and Kaikoura. This rural town is very welcoming.
Cheviot is the largest town on the coastal route between Amberley and Kaikoura and a charming place to explore.
You’ll find a range of shops on the main street (State Highway 1) with all the necessities on offer beside a range of art galleries and boutiques.
Cheviot Hill Domain, with its extensive planting of English trees, is a pleasant picnic spot in all seasons. In spring (September - November), you’ll be amazed at the sea of yellow daffodil flowers spread below the trees there.
Nearby, Gore Bay is popular for surfing. Don’t miss the Cathedral Cliffs just outside the town; they are a natural marvel.
Both the Hurunui and Waiau Rivers reward anglers with sea-run salmon and trout. A Cheviot farm stay can introduce you to the delights of sheep mustering, pony riding and other rural activities.
