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

Perfection! Following our road trip round the south island this was the perfect end to our New Zealand escapades. We stayed in the king ensuite in the main house and it was lovely. Great to have your own lounge area downstairs as well. Lovely bedding, beautiful breakfasts, gorgeous views. Hugh took us out on his quad bike round the farm... More

We had 2 nights in the Shepard's hut and it was very delightful. It was so peaceful and although we had no interaction except for a greeting from our host it was perfect. The hut has total privacy and is unlike any of our stays in the rest of New Zealand. It is a romantic little cottage with an outdoor... More

From the moment we arrived and opened our car door, we began to relax and take in the sublime understated beauty of this magic B&B. From the wonderful gardens to the rustic rural outlook to the inviting warmth of the furnishing and amenities, to the heavenly breakfasts, and superb hospitality of Katherine and Hugh, we were quite simply blown away...
