Friday far away: Dry Paddocks

My occasional 'Friday far away' series is a way for me to keep track of some of the very beautiful places/accommodation that I come across in my web surfing travels - they're places I think 'yes, I'd like to stay there one day if I'm ever in that neck of the woods'.  Well, reading this month's Australian Country Style magazine I came across another place I'd like to stay the next time I visit New Zealand, i.e. the boutique accommodation Dry Paddocks that's situated in the winery area of Waipara Valley - in the North Canterbury region of the South Island (approx. 45 minutes from the city of Christchurch).

The corrugated iron exterior with the snow capped mountains in the background:

The lovely neutral interior looks very inviting and relaxing. A great base from which to explore the wineries:

What a lovely spot... we are yet to go there - a little more than a day trip from Auckland. And those mountains in the background - amazing. Enjoy your weekend. A x
