We had a late arrival and a early departure from this lovely bed & breakfast. A very walm welcome with a delicious cheese platter, a good night's sleep and a very good breakfast. Some bathroom noise from the room next to ours came through though.

Brian is a very genial host in his lovely spacious country home. The views are beautiful wherever you look and the working farm adds to the atmosphere. Comfortable, spacious and very clean accommodation and a hugely generous country breakfast sets you up for the day. A great spot for relaxing and enjoying the countryside!

My husband and two boys aged 10 and 12 stayed here for one night. In hindsight I wish we had allocated more time in the area and stayed more nights. We stayed in the barn which had a loft style area upstairs with two singles and a queen - very comfortable. Kitchen facilities were fantastic and our boys of course... More

We based ourselves in Warkworth to be with family nearby and travelled around new Zealand, coming back to this place three times. It was like coming home! Very comfortable room and large lounge/kitchen with wide beautiful views. Breakfase was delicious and generous, and the fresh flowers on the tabled were charming. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the shower works... More

We had a very nice stay at this beatiful accommodation in December '13! The cordial and generous host really made us feel welcome. Comfortable, spacious rooms and terrace breakfast with unforgetable views!

This was an excellent place to stay, we arrived on short notice. Stunning quiet location. Enjoyed extensive options for breakfast on the terrace with another couple who also stayed. Our room was peaceful clean with a large lounge joining very reasonably priced. Short distance to Warkworth. Would come back again.

This would have to be the best value accomodation on the Kowhai Coast. Stunning quiet rural location, yet so close to Warkworth, friendly knowledgable host, reasonably priced, clean, private & well appointed suite. Extensive options for breakfast enjoyed on the terrace loggia watching the steers graze, so peaceful & relaxing. Self catering accomodation available in the barn would be great... More

We enjoyed the impressive and spacious accommodation in a beautiful rural setting a few kilometres out of Warkworth. The guest suite was spacious, and there was a very comfortable lounge and kitchenette. Having read on Trip Advisor that the owner provided evening meals on request, we e-mailed a couple of days before we were due to arrive to ask for... More

I am terribly sorry for the confusion. I certainly received your email requesting meals. Due to my wife having passed away a few months ago I had arranged for Deanna to come in and prepare dinner for you as I had a family function to attend that evening. However all meals are prepared fresh to the clients requests and I... More

This is an excellent Bed & Breakfast, very inviting and offering a lot of information about the area and places to visit. And exiting things to do together with Brian. We went with him for fishing our own fish and that was really excellent prepared and served the day after. An exiting experience, fishing on the Great Ocean!

This is a delightful B and B in a beautiful setting! The room and lounge are new and fresh and spotlessly clean and the view across the paddocks is to die for! Situated a short 5min drive to the town centre this B and B is in a class of its own. Great value for money and the breakfasts and... More
