Mt Lyford Holiday Homes are a small operation in Mt Lyford North Canterbury, One of the few places in Waiau where you can skate outdoors on natural ice.
Their big advantage is that their ice skating rink is on a double tennis court, so there is only 2 inches of water needed to create a rink. There are no worries about people falling through the ice, the rink is easily accessible with plenty of parking space, a toilet is available on site.
The Rink is open depending on weather conditions, in the evening there is skating under lights with music, there a bonfire next to the rink should you want to warm up or have a toasted marshmallow (compliments of Mt Lyford Holiday Homes). Ice skate hire is available in a good range of sizes from adult to children's. They have (homemade) curling stones available for a fun game of curling. There is always a message on their answer phone to say whether they are open or not.
