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

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
