From the east to the west of South Island via Highway 73, Flock Hill Lodge made the perfect pit stop. A gem in the middle of nowhere indeed.
We stayed in a self-contained cottage number 5 which comes with 2 rooms with queen size bed and 1 room with 3 single beds, there is also another single bed in the living hall. Nice living hall with fireplace, a spacious yard with picnic table, good size bathroom, a separate toilet and a well-equipped kitchen. Overall cottage 5 is very spacious, clean and homely.
Not aware of any shops nearby saved for the lodge's own restaurant. If you plan on cooking yourself, best stock up at the larger town before you hit on Highway 73. We bought our groceries at Darfield.
Flock Hill is a working station. A stroll around in the evening is quite enjoyable.
