Welcome to Lochlea Lifestyle Resort 


Located in the heart of Mid Canterbury, Ashburton lies just 85kms from both Christchurch and Timaru.

Lochlea Lifestyle Resort offers lifestyle living second to none and with superb facilities the hardest part of your day will be deciding what to do. You can be involved in as much or as little as you like - the choice is yours!

Beyond the Boundaries


At Lochlea Lifestyle Resort, we believe that life is for living. Residing in a safe and secure gated community doesn’t mean being fenced off from the world. On the contrary, it offers you security so you feel confident to get out and explore the surrounding area.

Ashburton is bounded by two of New Zealand’s most popular salmon and trout fishing rivers, the Rakaia and Rangitata.

With a population of over 30,000, the town has a strong rural background in farming. Situated on State Highway 1, Ashburton is easily accessible and serviced by daily passenger bus connections from main centres in the South Island.

The Resort

The luxury Lochlea Lifestyle Resort complex is situated on 6.2 hectares of flat land in Lochlea Estate, off Racecourse Road. Close to the Allenton shopping centre, Ashburton Racecourse and the Allenton Golf Club, the resort also features many internal recreational facilities.

A facility centre called Lochlea Lodge is the hub of the resort, providing members with the chance to enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities. On Friday afternoons residents are invited to enjoy happy hour in The Lodge between 4pm and 5.15pm, and are entitled to up to three complimentary drinks per person comprising of either beer, wine or a selection of spirits.
