Apart from the accommodation, the Mount Christopherson property offers a number of facilities that guests are welcome to use.
We have a large swimming pool that has a solar cover to keep the water warm during our up and down summer temperatures.
There is a small meditation yurt which can seat around 6 to 8 people on the cushions that are in there. It’s a great place for a group discussion as well.
There are lots of small animals to visit in the top paddocks, guarded by alpacas and maremma dogs.
Underneath the main house there is a cinema which will seat up to 30 people to watch a film, or a video or photograph presentation. We have tables to put in the room as well, so that it could be used for a seminar or workgroup. And we have soft mats that can be spread on the floor to provide a comfortable base for yoga or meditation. This room can be hydronically heated – warm and silent.
Around the gardens we have an amphitheatre which would provide a lovely group area, the Folly which gives magnificent views over surrounding countryside, the swing which is a nice little diversion and two lookouts which are out in the conservation area.
The croquet lawn (yes, we even have a croquet set, although the lawn is a bit rough to play a proper game) is a large flat area that is great for setting up a marquee, for outdoor yoga or for all manner of games and activities.
