Directions

 
 

From Christchurch

Annie’s Loft B&B at Waipara River Estate, is located at 169 Mackenzies Road, Waipara 7483. Waipara is at the intersection of SH1 & SH7

Driving North from Christchurch:

Take SH1 (State Highway 1) North, past Amberley & drive about 10 minutes. Just over the Waipara River is the intersection with SH7 junction towards Hanmer Springs. Rather than take this turn off (which will take you to Waipara if you turn right into Glenmark Drive just over the railway line), you can continue 1 km on SH1 and turn left at the sign for Waipara.

Over the railway line (which has warning lights and bells) at the end of the road, you will see signs for Annie’s Loft. Turn left and a short distance turn right into Mackenzies Road. You will see the Glenmark Railway Station for the Weka Pass tourist train on the left.

Travel straight ahead for 1.69km, passing several vineyards and & you will see the sign for Waipara River Estate and Annie’s Loft & Studio on the left. Go straight up this driveway, through the vineyards to the white house with red roof which is on the right hand side.
Turn into the curved drive at the front entrance to the house.

  • The entrance for Annie’s Loft is the double doors in front of the house.
  • The entrance for the Studio is at the far end of the curved driveway. Walk up the deck and through the French doors.

Park either in the bay at the end of the drive or opposite the garage.

Driving South from Picton:

Due to the 2016 Kaikoura Earthquake, SH1 north of Kaikoura is closed so SH1 traffic from Picton is diverted so you will drive down SH7 via the Lewis Pass. At Waipara before you join SH1, turn left and drive through Waipara Village; immediately after the tourist railway line for Glenmark Station (on your left) turn left into Mackenzies Road.

Travel straight ahead for 1.69km, passing several vineyards and & you will see the sign for Waipara River Estate and Annie’s Loft & Studio on the left. Go straight up this driveway, through the vineyards to the white house with red roof which is on the right hand side.
Turn into the curved drive in front of the house.

  • The entrance for Annie’s Loft is the double doors in front of the house.
  • The entrance for the Studio is at the far end of the curved driveway. Walk up the deck and through the French doors.

Park either in the bay at the end of the drive or opposite the garage.
