Larnach Castle is New Zealand's only Castle sitting in superb grounds high on a hilltop of the Otago Peninsula looking out over the waters of Otago Harbour, 20 minutes by car north of Dunedin. Larnach Castle was built over 5 years from 1871 by the extremely wealthy baron William Larnach. Its lavish interiors took another 11 years to complete. Filled with New Zealand antiques, the castle and the surrounding 35 acres of gardens and grounds are open daily to visitors.

Within the grounds lies a colonial style farm building, the Larnach Lodge, with 12 holiday accommodation rooms individually decorated in period style. All have a magnificent view of the ocean 100 feet below and ensuite bathrooms. Lodge guests are invited on a complimentary tour of Larnach Castle and breakfast is included in the tariff. Dinner is offered in a Castle Dining Room, and is only available to accommodation guests.

Larnach Lodge was designed as a re-creation of a colonial farm building, positioned with spectacular harbour, ocean and peninsula views, making the the ideal overnight accommodation on your next New Zealand holiday.
