An amazing location topped only by the amazing hosts with a wealth of local knowledge and beyond. A wonderfully maintained country homestead with peace and tranquility that puts you right at ease. For those looking for a bit of an escape check this place out first with enough to do in the surrounding areas to keep you more than interested.

We stayed 1 night at this lovely homestead which is in a lovely rural setting, full of tranquility and peace. The full breakfast was delicious. However we stayed in the studio and from the website and reviews on TripAdvisor we didn't realise that the studio was seperate from the homestead in a 'corrugated barn/garage' with none of the character of...

Beautiful location in Hawarden. We stayed in the gallery which is separate from the homestead and it was a perfect place for the night. Herman was a great host setting up a European breakfast for us prior to our departure. We were here for work, but I'd like to return and spend a little more time. Perhaps stay in the... More

Beautiful rooms. Well furnished. Good breakfast. Very nice hosts. In the middle of the countryside in the Waipara Vally. If you want to get some rest , this is the place to be. Also Christchurch is nearby.

The B&B is located out in the countryside, 15 - 30 minutes from villages and towns of the Waipara Valley. You discover a gracious traditional house amid the fields and pastures (use your GPS!). Our room was very large, with a private door onto the terrace, and a nicely equipped bathroom. "Our" sitting room was just across the hall from... More

We only stayed one night on this charming premises, which is probably worthwhile for a longer vacation. Woodgrove, an old farm with a history tenderly maintained by its owner, lies in a quite hilly region, ideal for hiking or visiting Christchurch, which is considerably less than one hour's drive. The mansion is impressive, equipped with antique, partly french furniture, a... More

We enjoyed our recent stay, in a comfortable room. It can be a bit hard to find, so happily we had directions in hand and were arriving in daylight. We had booked it because they provided an evening meal, which was well presented. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the bed outstanding. A huge walk-in shower with wonderful towels... More

“There's a range of accommodation to suite all types of travelers. I stayed in the Bay Window suite, which was beautiful. There's a large marble bathroom and walk in wardrobe and separate sitting room with it's own library. The photographs on-line don't do it justice! The Russet room also looked amazing as did the separate self-contained gallery/studio with views across the Canterbury plains and towards the mountains. The beds are comfy and it's so quiet. It's truly a slice of heaven :)”
