Allow time to stop while you celebrate. Hemsworth Estate is a place in which time can stop and allow you to enjoy the moment. Five minutes from Ashburton and only an hour away from Christchurch, this is one of the quickest getaway locations that feels secluded, private and just yours.
Built in the early Edwardian era, Hemsworth Estate truly stops time. For over one hundred and thirty years it has been a space to enjoy, grow up and celebrate including milestone birthdays, and weddings for over three generations.
Five minutes from Ashburton and only an hour away from Christchurch, Hemsworth Estate is one of the closest retreats for any private occasion. Set on fifty-eight acres of land, and originally home to the first Hampshire Sheep stud flock in the country, the family has enjoyed it’s private, nurturing respite with only the sounds of nature to interrupt.
Hemsworth Estate seems to be designed for celebrating. Set in a sheltered circle of centennial trees, the lawns and gardens are open and inviting for any kind of event. From a large gathering to a small intimate celebration, we have created various spaces to cater to any event. There are five choices available to host your celebration – The Lawn, The Garden, The Greene, The Dining Room and The Drawing Room. Starting from an intimate party of ten and catering all the way up to three hundred, there is a celebration for everyone at Hemsworth. All that’s required is your special idea.
Ceremonies are held outdoors using the gardens and nature to frame your special moment in beauty. Receptions can be held in any of the three outdoor locations that can hold up to 300 people. The indoor venues are best for intimate parties.
