We have stayed in many excellent B&Bs around the world, and Coombe Farm is one of the very best. Kathrine and Hugh have created an oasis of quiet elegance on a sheep-and-cattle farm in a beautiful location just a few minutes from Akaroa on the stunning Banks Peninsula. Everything was perfect, from the tasteful decorations, to extremely comfortable amenities and... More

The Shepard's Hut is a cozy private retreat where we celebrated our 42nd anniversary. The young and young at heart will love this "hut" with a back to nature feel. Katherine and Hugh have though of everything one needs: CD player with a wide and perfect music selection; comfy robes; a wide deck to enjoy a glass of wine, eat... More

We stayed one night in Kathrine and Hugh's home on our way to the south. It was a delight. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was really good in particular the croissants nice and warm, and the apricot compote. The hosts welcomed us warmly and recommended us great places to dine in Akaroa and in Christchurch. They also had... More

We stayed at Coombe Farm for just one night last week toward the end of our New Zealand adventure and it was the perfect place to end our trip. Katherine has created a delightful haven in the countryside, beautifully furnished and appointed, and my only regret is that we were not there for a longer visit. She has anticipated her... More

We stayed in the Shepherds Hut which was separate from the farmhouse and very private. Katherine was extremely pleasant and has created a very special place. The hut is well designed, cosy and comfortable. Lovely extra touches, flowers on the table, fruit bowl and chocolate. Provisions - egg, bacon, yoghurt, fruit, bread and preserves are provided and cooking is on... More

Both the house and hosts are charming. It's a peaceful location yet still a short drive from Akaroa with all of its French charm. The farmhouse was built in the 1890s and had been substantially renovated. There is a large, welcoming community lounge with comfortable seating. Our bedroom was en-suite, with the usual tea making facilities. The bed was really... More

We spent three nights in Hugh and Kathryn's lovely home before joining up with our bicycling group in Christchurch. This was a perfect start to our New Zealand vacation--a property filled with blooming gardens, convenient location to Akaroa's main streets, a cozy kitchen, and and hosts who are personable and relaxed. Our room was ample with a luxurious king bed... More

We had our own tea and coffee and separate bathroom down the hallway - dressing gowns were provided for use going to and from the bathroom. Breakfast in the kitchen... More
