Cheviot is known to most as being a great place to stop on your way to or from Kaikoura, being about half way between Kaikoura and Christchurch.

There are some fabulous places to eat, drink, get supplies, shop and fill up your car.  There is a lot more to Cheviot than you may have realised and it is well worth taking the time to visit for longer to discover all that the region has to offer.

We have some lovely walking tracks and many great cycling trails, suitable for all levels. You can go wine tasting or visit a hazelnut orchard and if your visit requires an over night stay, we have accommodation to suit everyone's needs, from a classic kiwi holiday homes to world-class B&B luxury. 

2018 is a big year for Cheviot as it is our 125 year anniversary of settlement, hence the Fete is going to be bigger and better than ever before.

The Festival is held annually in early September and the 2017 event was a wonderful day out for all involved. If you think you would like be involved in this years' event, please follow the link below!

Knox Community Centre FUNDRAISER

All funds raised go towards the purchase of the Cheviot Knox Church and Hall to create The Cheviot Knox Community Centre for the Cheviot community.

Our aim is to purchase the complex and place it in an entity and management structure which will ensure it remains in public usage for the long-term benefit and wellbeing of the Cheviot community as a central space for people to congregate in a neutral environment, while not being a burden to the rate payer nor reliant on volunteers.
