Coombe Farm Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 24 Akaroa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 17, 2011

The Coombe farm was recommended to us and it did not fail to live up to expectations. First and foremost was the hospitality from Hugh and Kathrine who went beyond the call in the service to their guests. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. The decor in the house and the bedrooms tasteful with some nice contemporary touches. We stayed one night in the ensuite room which was spacious with a queen, comfortable bed and the other night in the one with the shared with the hosts but was left mostly for our own use. The grounds around the house are beautifully landscaped which then meld nicely into their hundred plus acre farm around which we were lucky enough to be toured. There are fruit trees which were laden with plums, apples and peaches.
Location: it is situated about 5 km west of Akaroa - a problem if you like to walk to your restaurants but a benefit if you like to be off the beaten track in a true, Kiwi, pastoral setting. Recognizing that we did not relish a lovely dinner at Le Petit Bistro without wine they were quick to offer to drive us into Akaroa and pick us up after.
Overall it was two of the finest days we spent in our 6 week tour of New Zealand.

Staying on this lovely sheep farm on the stunningly beautiful Banks Peninsula was one of the highlights of our travels in New Zealand. The guest accommodation is spacious and comfortable, and the hosts are charming. The farm is located close to the seaside town of Akaroa and Hugh and Kathrine provided us with excellent tips on where to eat and what to see and do in the area. Farm breakfasts were delicious. We felt very welcome and would love to return.

this isn't just a lovingly restored old farm house it's lovingly restored old fashioned hospitality ! the situation of the farmhouse is just off the beaten track literally so before you arrive you feel you are going somewhere special - and it just doesn't disappoint, from the front gate through the farm house garden to the vintage and quirky decor of the sitting and living rooms to the duck down mattresses it is just heavenly. Go there. Rest and thank your stars you found it... easy 5 min drive to Akaroa too but by far the better spot to stay on the peninsula...
