I took my husband away for a night to Bycroft Lodge as a birthday present, and it was hands down the best place i could have chosen. Helen and Willem are the epitomy of perfect hosts, and were so incredibly warm and welcoming as soon as we arrived. We had booked the Ascot Suite for the night, and as soon as we were taken inside we were blown away at how beautiful it was - rustic whitewashed furniture, large sweeping windows, even a wonderful antler chandelier. Once we had settled in, Helen gave us some fantastic ideas of some places to have dinner out, and we ended up at Monarch in Pukekohe. As a side note, Monarch was really fantastic, and there were also numerous other options, spoiling us for choice. The next morning we were greeted by beautiful glistening sunny views through the palm trees out over the fields, and then at the time that we had chosen, we were presented with the most amazing breakfast spread we have ever laid eyes on! Eggs, bacon, homemade fruit salad, cereals, yoghurt and extra special Dutch coffees. After a relaxing breakfast, and then a wander around outside to meet the horses and chickens, we packed up and sadly headed back to the city. We really cannot reccomend Bycroft Lodge enough, it is the perfect escape from the city, or from anywhere for that matter, and you feel like youve been transported away to a magical slice of paradise. Helen and Willem are the real standout of the place, with their amazing kindness and welcoming nature - they are so lovely and so open to helping out with anything you need. Head to Bycroft Lodge for yourself and experience it, we can assure you that you will not be disapointed!
