‘Wedding Reception…’

“My family and friends all stayed at Parkbrae Estate for my wedding, we had people come from all over the world, and everyone was impressed with Parkbrae, it really is a magical place. Patricia was extremely helpful and welcoming, the wedding reception was on the estate too, all went to plan. A fantastic place for a wedding and reception. Thanks again and we will be back for a winter visit.”

‘Just perfect…’

“We stayed in Aldourie Lodge, an adorable house over looking the wee church. We used this as our wedding accommodation, it made a perfect backdrop for photos, and was comfortable, spacious and full of beautiful furnishings and ‘nicnacs’ – so much nicer than a boring hotel room. The owners and staff at Parkbrae were amazing, nothing was a problem, they happily let us use the BBQ and have a family get together within their beautiful gardens. Extended family had stayed in other cottages within Parkbrae and all were impressed with their accommodation also. We will definitely be back.”

“What a delightful cottage (Garden Cottage) set in such a romantic setting, we loved spending our honeymoon here, stunning views, peaceful and secluded — we will be back :-D”

‘Wedding accommodation, or just a great place to holiday…’

“With so many beautiful, well-fitted houses/cottages, this makes the ideal wedding accommodation. The bride stayed in Aldourie and we had our hair and makeup done in the living room, looking out towards the Church of the Good Shepherd. I stayed across the road in the Garden Cottage which like all the accommodation at Parkbrae is excellent. The Groomsmen stayed in The Tower and Bush House. It worked so well having everyone close and the added bonus was the excellent quality of the accommodation and the amazing views! The gardens at Parkbrae are beautiful with lots of opportunities for photos, not to mention how close you are to the lake and church as well! I would highly recommend Parkbrae as both wedding accommodation or if you just looking for a lovely place to stay in Tekapo!”
