Thanks to Katherine and Hugh, the owners of Coombe Farm B & B they gave us a delightful stay in their farm cottage. Nestled in a small valley and surrounded with beautiful gardens full of roses, it was like stepping back in time. The farm is only a few minutes drive from Akaroa on the Banks Peninsular just outside Christchurch... More

Had a lovely stay at Coombe Farm, the hosts Kathrine & Hugh are just lovely. The house is gorgeous circa 1910, beautifully restored in a lovely garden about 10 mins drive from Akaroa. My husband stated it was the best breakfast ever with fresh fruit, muesli and cooked eggs, sausage, bacon etc. While we were there we went to the... More

The house is a restored one century old manor and we stayed in the room on the 2nd floor.it is so cool to stay inside! The house itself is like a live museum! Katherine is really friendly and interesting to chat with. Hugh drove and showed us around the farm in his quadbike and was very patient in our many... More

We booked the Shepherd's Hut, and it was pure heaven! You feel like you are in Hansel and Gretel land - right down to the outdoor cast-iron bath. The owners are so friendly and helpful, and they have created a piece of heaven. We looked at the bed & breakfast rooms in the main house while we were there, and... More

My husband and I stayed here on our last night in NZ after a 6 week trip. It was so nice to have a large and spacious room and a comfortable bed. The views are amazing. Katherine and Hugh are a delight to chat with and Katherine makes an amazing breakfast with vegetables from her garden and home made yogurt.... More

My husband & I stayed here for the first 3 nights plus the last night of our holiday on South Island, New Zealand. We had a spotlessly clean large airy room with an en-suite bathroom. There was a guest lounge downstairs. Kathryn & Hugh made us very welcome & breakfasts were very good. Kathryn was happy to cater for a... More

I almost feel like I don't want to write this glowing review. I want to keep Coombe Farm my own little place. Our time there was magical. It was by far the favorite place we stayed in during our two weeks in NZ. Katherine and Hugh are stellar and gracious hosts. Their home is lovely--Katherine is a beautiful and talented... More

My husband and I stayed in the Shepard's hut for 2 nights and it was by far our favorite accommodations. The hut is cozy, well appointed, perfectly decorated and has some wonderful unique features (like an outdoor bathtub) that made it a terrific place to stay. Kathrine and Hugh are the real reason this place was so wonderful. They thought... More

Upon arrival at Coombe Farm, we were already blown away by its beautiful surroundings and lovely garden setting. The restored home is something you would find out of a home decor magazine. The house is bright and spacious with wonderful attention to detail. Our King ensuite room looked out to the front yard - it was quiet, cosy, and very... More

We stayed in the Queen bedroom for one night as part of a road trip. Bathroom was down the hallway but was for our exclusive use and very well equipped with separate bath and shower. The room was spacious with a good selection of quality furniture, and had a view over their front garden. We had a very comfortable stay... More
