My partner and I stayed at this incredible bed and breakfast run by Kate and Russ. After a long drive, the two of them stepped out into the cold to greet us, offer us wine and homemade chutneys, feed us, and show us around. We soon learned that their hospitality and generosity were matched only by their taste in decor; Ashfield's Country Garden is one of the most lovely locations we have ever stayed in. Our room was spacious and adjoined a wide living room that felt so familiar and homely. A crackling fireplace was ready for our arrival, and our room was doused in beautifully light aromas. The next morning, we toured the magnificent property, a landscaped garden and kiwi orchard that combined the full New Zealand experience with visual beauty in one fell swoop. Breakfast - a collection of baked goods of Kate's creation, warm coffee, and a delicious berry dish - got us perfectly ready to see the area. After a lovely stay with the hosts, who showed us the best outlooks of the nearby ocean and forced us to take delicious kiwis, we cannot overstate the pleasure of our time at Ashfield's.
Sidenote: For travelers having trouble deciding on one of the many great-looking locations in the Bay of Plenty, we suffered from the same problem and decided on Ashfield's on gut instinct. We can safely say, having come and gone, that it was the right decision and urge you to follow in our footsteps. Ashfield's is the real deal.
