We booked for one night for the first bit of our honeymoon and ended up staying for two. We stayed in the Gate House cottage and had the place to ourselves.

Great location for our first anniversary weekend. Stayed in the French Hut, and enjoyed the outdoor bath, closely situated to the stream. Lovely, clean, cosy and warm - the hut was a secluded retreat. Would highly recommend.

Lovely secluded B&B that's close to Akaroa. Would recommend either of the options (gatehouse or gardeners retreat). Very quiet with no traffic noise at all. Was really nice to be woken up by the smell of freshly baked croissants for breakfast! Would definitely go again next year!

Even better was its surroundings, lovely stream, surrounded by bush, no traffic noise just the birds, the hot bath down by the stream was a bonus making this a very romantic retreat with total privacy. The hosts were very welcoming and provided a lovely... More

A very peaceful spot - yet only 5 minutes drive from Akaroa town. No danger of being awoken by noisy revellers here! One of the rooms The French Hut (a double room) is tucked away down the garden path across a couple of bridges and sits under the trees beside a stream. As well as the indoor bathroom, it boasts...
