Westmorland Heights is zoned for some exceptional schools in Christchurch. Hoon Hay & Thorrington Primary Schools are just a short driving distance and will cater for your young ones. The decile 9 Cashmere High School caters to the educational needs of your teenagers and also offers a wide range of cultural and sporting options.
Halswell Village and Barrington Shopping Centre both serve the Westmorland area and have a range of retail options, supermarkets and artisan products. For those with green fingers – or with a hankering for Sunday brunch – Oderings resides at the base of Westmorland with it’s recently opened café.
Living in Westmorland grants ready access to the jewel in Christchurch’s crown – The Port Hills.
Experience untamed beauty in your own backyard as you discover the braided network of walking tracks that make up the hills, or venture around the corner to the expansive Halswell Quarry for a walk, bike ride or picnic with the family.
The Quarry also has a great dog park for those with canine companions.
Enjoyment comes in the form of experiencing the great outdoors, and for some, this can only be done at speed. Strap on your helmet and tune up the cycle, because the Canterbury Adventure Park is right on your doorstep. The Adventure Park caters to the every whim of the adrenaline junkie (and to those who like to play it a little safer), and is close enough to make it a daily occurrence.
