My husband and I loved the deck with the outdoor bathtub. Katherine's lavender bath salts and pots of herbs, the gentle rush of the stream just below the deck, and the watchful appearance of a large New Zealand pigeon in the tree above us made for one of the most memorable afternoons of our entire stay in NZ. We enjoyed... More

We spent four nights in the "Shepherd's Hut" and really enjoyed it. The iPod dock was a nice added feature; sitting on the deck, with the beautiful surroundings, with our own music playing was a good way to wind up a trip to New Zealand. The outdoor tub/shower would not be to everyone's taste (nor would having to go out... More

When 99 people rated Coombe Farm as 'excellent' we had high expectations - and we were not disappointed, so make that 100! Wonderful hosts, beautiful location and we were hugely disappointed to be only staying for one night - we would have absolutely no hesitation in going back and if we return to the South Island at any stage then...

I absolutely love this place - we're so grateful to Hugh and Kathrine for making us so welcome and sharing their beautiful house with us. Our favourite things... 1) Lovely tea tray upon arrival including delicious home made banana cake. Yum! 2) The spectacular view from our bedroom window across the valley. A great way to wake up, especially when... More

I don't remember the last time I slept with lace fringed linens, nor went to sleep with the smell of lavender wafting through the room, but Coombe's Farm offers you that and more. Katherine made sure that my gluten free and dairy free needs were met, and fresh eggs and ham, cereals, yogurt, fresh squeezed juice, pressed coffee, helped you... More

After reading excellent reviews about this B&B, our expectation was quite high. Despite that high expectation, this place made us stunned and speechless since the first moment we stepped inside the house. It's hard to believe that it was far exceeding our expectation. It was so neatly decorated in vintage style, full of taste, scent and warm. The house is... More

We stayed in a motel in Akaroa for the first couple of nights of our trip and then treated ourselves to Coombe Farm for a night and what a treat it was. Beautiful setting, lovely place and absolutely wonderful people. We chatted for ages with Kathrine and Hugh and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Would love to visit again... More

We wanted somewhere special for new year and the Shepherd's Hut was the perfect place. Not only is the setting absolutely stunning, the hut is beautifully appointed in a rustic and quirky style. The breakfast hamper was delicious and wholesome, loved the home-made jam. It was so relaxing sitting on the deck, wine in hand and listening to the creek... More

My new husband and I spent two nights of our honeymoon at Coombe Farm, staying in the Shepherd's Hut. It was the most perfect place - completely private, romantic, and fantastically comfortable. We really loved all the thoughtful personal touches like the home-baking, lovely linens, and the great selection of books. The supplies that were provided for breakfast were absolutely... More

The style of this B&B is amazing, so beautiful! Comfortable bed, coffee/tea making facility in room, tasty cookies! Excellent service, we were welcomed with our choice of a drink (cold beer!) and a cheese platter on the verandah in the sun. Beautiful garden and flowers in front of the house and supercute kittens! Stayed only one night, but can really... More
