This was one of the nicest places that I stayed in during my recent trip to NZ. Hugh and Katherine made me so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. I was making a fuss of the sheep dogs and my jumper got covered in mud, so Katherine washed it for me and I went out in one... More

Unfortunately we only had one night at this wonderful place. We loved the farm house and its peaceful and idyllic character. The rooms are just gorgeous, beautifully decorated, spacious, clean and very comfortable. Katherine and Hugh were truly delightful and welcoming hosts; Katherine presented us with an excellent breakfast in her cozy kitchen. Thank you!

Coombe Farm was the most relaxing and interesting stay on our trip to New Zealand. Hugh and Katherine Fraser are delightful hosts and we had terrific conversations with them about their lives and work on a sheep and cattle farm nestled in the mountains near Akaroa. It was quiet and luxurious. The farmhouse Hugh grew up in has been totally... More

The Shepard's Hut, what can we say, absolute magic. Just everything you could hope for, peaceful, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Everything you need to enjoy a romantic night together. Put on the music, wine, dine, let the stars twinkle down as you bathe. Perfect. Thank you Katherine and Hugh for sharing this piece of paradise.

We spent three nights in the Shepherds Hut and cannot say enough how the hut, its immediate and slightly farther surrounds (do walk up the hills and find the waterfall if not the bench with the best view of any bench anywhere...) were utterly blissful. Kathrine and Hugh are delightful hosts and we had the best risotto ever at the... More

This is a delightful home nestled into the hills just outside Akaroa (5min drive to town). It was exceptionally well appointed and comfortable house, with the most welcoming of hosts. They made their guests feel like visiting friends or relatives, not paying guests. I could continue, but the 110 previous (out of 110) reviews rating Coombe Farm as "excellent" got... More

We had a truly lovely stay. Don't read too many of the reviews, otherwise you'll spoil yourselves! :-) We came without having read any of them and it was such a pleasant experience. Be reassured, Katherine and Hugh will make sure that you'll have the most comfortable time you can imagine. It's like coming home. Thank you.

We felt so welcomed and spoilt during our stay, with the stunning room and view, the delicious breakfast, their wealth of knowledge for the area and their incredible hospitality. Highly recommend!
