We are purpose-built for small groups, and accommodate up to 20 in our five spacious guest rooms. Family reunions, weekend house parties and couples' weekends are great ways to experience Rough and Tumble Bush Lodge on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island.

Each of our rooms has beds both downstairs and in our trademark upstairs 'bird's-eye view' lofts, providing separate areas for singles and couples. Most groups choose to make their own meals using our well equipped kitchen, although with advance notice we can arrange a caterer for special meals. Guests can settle in for a few days, have no need to drive anywhere, and concentrate on relaxing and enjoying each other's company.

We guarantee exclusive use for groups - that means no sharing of facilities; the place is yours for the duration of your stay. We will give you a brief orientation on arrival, ensure you are set up with firewood and other essentials, then get out of your way.

Check our tariffs for exclusive-use reservations as well as our Special Offers for self-catering groups.
