“A lovely peaceful retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

A great couple of days at a lovely and beautifully prepared home, all the details were well thought out from the decor to the local area advice for activities and things to do, and the company was wonderful especially the two lovely dogs who were very friendly and well behaved. We felt very welcomed and the food was delicious! Definitely would recommend to anyone considering, especially couples wanting a nice getaway.

stayed there with my wife and baby for 2 nights.
it was a luxury stay with a beautiful and comfortable bedroom and living room surrounded by amazing gardens and country sides.
breakfast was absolutely delicious and the hospitality by Kate and Russ was delightful .

Russ and Kate are a lovely, genuine couple and superb hosts - from the moment we arrived on their driveway to our final coffee with them the morning we left.

What a beautiful home they have and to allow us to share it was a privilege. The garden and grounds were stunning. The pool was a great cool down after a long hot journey. We spent an entertaining first evening in the company of Russ and Kate, who cooked us a super meal and we chatted over a bottle (or two) of wine! The following day Russ showed us around his Kiwi fruit plantation and we were joined by their two character dogs - Theo and Cassie.

Sadly, we only had two nights there. When we left we felt like we had made friends and our only regret is that we may not see them again ...unless of course they visit the north of England, in which case they will be most welcome in our home!

A superb house and gardens in a lovely country location. The swimming pool was a real bonus especially with wall to wall sunshine. The accommodation was spacious and extremely comfortable. Russ and Kate were the perfect hosts with excellent food and never short of a drink to go with it! If we play golf with Russ again, he will have to play off a lower handicap! Also found the trip round the kiwi farm most interesting. We shall be back!

We really enjoy meeting and hosting our guests. It is always a pleasure to see in such generous reviews that our guests have enjoyed their stay with us, and we hope to welcome them back again. (Russ's golf handicap has since dropped a bit!)

Great quality B&B - lovely garden, stylish interior and hospitality at its finest. Great place to relax and get spoilt with home made breakfasts including yummy bread and fruity jams. Charming hosts. Friendly dogs. Spotless and faultless.

From the moment we turned into the drive at Ashfields we thought we had stumbled into a little slice of paradise. The gardens are superb and very relaxing and the house is superb and immaculately kept. A large, light comfortable bedroom, a small but excellently stocked kitchen, a bathroom I would love to have at home with a large walk in shower and the largest lounge we encountered on our trip to New Zealand. It was a delight to stay there and we could easily have stayed a week (or more!).

Kate cooked us some wonderful meals - much better than going into Whakatane 19 klms away. We could have taken these on our own private decking but Kate and Russ are such wonderful and interesting hosts that we took our meals with them. It was like staying with friends. Ashfields was certainly one of our favourite places during our whole 6 week trip.

We spent a very enjoyable weekend at Ashfields Country Garden B&B.
The gardens were delightful as was the view of the surrounding landscape and hills.
Kate and Russ as our hosts were most welcoming and friendly while still respecting our privacy
Our accommodation was beautifully appointed , relaxing and comfortable . A spacious lounge was available for our own use.
We were given delicious breakfast choices which we ate in the sun on the deck .
Ashfields provides a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside. We enjoyed a trip to Whakatane and Ohope Beach
Overall we had a memorable weekend and can thoroughly recommend the Ashfields experience.
