Old Stone House

The Old Stone House, nestled at the foot of the Cashmere Hills, is a unique Christchurch landmark. Fully restored and reopened on 7 February 2018, after earthquake strengthening and major repairs, the building is once again available for hire for weddings and other events as well as for community use. 

This historic venue will add elegance to your wedding or function with ambience and a touch of class. With total freedom to select your own caterer and beverage supplier, you have complete control of your event: your day, your way.

Built in 1870, the Old Stone House is a significant piece of Canterbury history and provides an intimate setting for weddings of up to 80-100 guests, while its heritage gardens and striking architecture, both indoors and outdoors, provide a memorable backdrop for photographs.

The tranquil heritage garden setting is a popular choice for an outdoor wedding ceremony in the summer.

The Old Stone House is managed by the Cracroft Community Centre, which was established in 1972 to meet the needs of the local community, with a booking agent facilitating viewings and bookings. The Old Stone House continues to be a community resource and can be hired for use by groups of all sorts for meetings, classes etc.

Please check the calendar for availability on a specific date, or send an enquiry to the Booking Agent
