This B and B was a real home from home. Very friendly hosts. Quiet setting. Nice view of countryside and sea from bedroom. Very good drizzle cake an added touch and treat. Would very much recommend on any trip to the akaroa area. Close to town.

We stayed at Coombe Farm with friends, and thought it superb. Our hosts Katherine and Ian could not have been more welcoming. The house itself is beautifully furnished, and Katherine's interest in linens and textiles is evident everywhere, from her stunning collection of quilts, through gorgeous curtains and cushions and table clothes which appear throughout the house. The garden is... More

We stayed in the Shepherd's Hut which we loved and have already shared our experience with many others. Kathrine and Hugh were delightful to be with. We felt like we made friends for life! The accommodations were quite comfortable. The outside bathtub was a fun experience and we enjoyed our chats with Kathrine and Hugh. Hugh even showed us around... More

Our hosts were amazing. We were the envy of our friends, even if they stayed in more "upmarket" places. We loved the ambiance, the privacy and our excellent hosts.We had the opportunity to stay in both of the types of accommodation available at Coombe Farm, but while the in-house one was grand with a great breakfast provided, we really appreciated...

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

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.

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.

“The farmhouse has wifi, but for a unique option, try the Shepherd's Hut. Nothing like it anywhere else.”
  • Those teacups are adorable and a lovely view of a bubbling creek.
  • In a completely private area, truly, you can shower outdoors while you listen to the birds sing.
