This lovely b&b surpassed all my expectations! I travel alone which is why I choose b&bs to stay in. This one ticked all the boxes!! The house and huge gardens were amazing. The house is over 130yrs old and so stunning inside, beautifully restored and the most gorgeous bedrooms and comfortable beds. The furnishings and linens are a showcase for Liz's Interior Design business. The garden is to die for. I love finding a spot outside to relax and read, and I counted 16 outdoor seating areas tucked away under wonderful old trees or on a sunny lawn. All I could hear were the birds......this is amazing as this is only a couple of minutes walk from the main town. Jim and Liz were the most friendly and welcoming hosts. Jim's knowledge of the local walks of which there are many, was so helpful and the breakfasts were the best I have had in NZ. The highlight of my stay was the evening wine with Jim and Liz and the other guests. We had so much fun and tasting their own wine from the gorgeous little vineyard behind the house was wonderful. The free wifi internet was an added bonus! I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
