Owned and operated by Chris & Julia Stephenson, Bannockburn House is remote enough to remind you of days gone by whilst being close enough to everything you’d ever desire in a Central Otago holiday destination. 

History surrounds the area and relics of gold mining days pepper the grounds. Gold tailings are visible from every aspect as are the steadily growing orchard trees including figs, pomegranates, almonds, apples, peaches and plums.

Bannockburn is famous for its viticulture and there are many wineries who offer hospitality second to none. Enjoy a picnic, a wine tasting or a 5 star lunch – the choice is yours. Many of the wineries are within a 5 minute drive, a 20 minute bike or a leisurely 30-40 minute walk for those wanting to stretch their legs.  We are very happy to help share our favourite winery experiences with you so you don't miss out on some of the regions hidden gems.  

Cromwell township and the exclusive Highlands Motorsport Park are a 10 minute drive away; The Central Otago rail trail commences in Clyde which is a 20 minute drive from Bannockburn, there are bike trails less than a kilometer from our front door and e-bikes can be hired with prior arrangement.  Wanaka & Queenstown are a very scenic 50 minute drive.
