Brian is a very genial host in his lovely spacious country home. The views are beautiful wherever you look and the working farm adds to the atmosphere. Comfortable, spacious and very clean accommodation and a hugely generous country breakfast sets you up for the day. A great spot for relaxing and enjoying the countryside!

My husband and two boys aged 10 and 12 stayed here for one night. In hindsight I wish we had allocated more time in the area and stayed more nights. We stayed in the barn which had a loft style area upstairs with two singles and a queen - very comfortable. Kitchen facilities were fantastic and our boys of course...

Our room was peaceful clean with a large lounge joining very reasonably priced. Short distance to Warkworth. Would come back again.

This would have to be the best value accomodation on the Kowhai Coast. Stunning quiet rural location, yet so close to Warkworth, friendly knowledgable host, reasonably priced, clean, private & well appointed suite. Extensive options for breakfast enjoyed on the terrace loggia watching the steers graze, so peaceful & relaxing. Self catering accomodation available in the barn would be great...

We enjoyed the impressive and spacious accommodation in a beautiful rural setting a few kilometres out of Warkworth. The guest suite was spacious, and there was a very comfortable lounge and kitchenette. Having read on Trip Advisor that the owner provided evening meals on request, we e-mailed a couple of days before we were due to arrive to ask for...

I am terribly sorry for the confusion. I certainly received your email requesting meals. Due to my wife having passed away a few months ago I had arranged for Deanna to come in and prepare dinner for you as I had a family function to attend that evening. However all meals are prepared fresh to the clients requests and I...

This is an excellent Bed & Breakfast, very inviting and offering a lot of information about the area and places to visit. And exiting things to do together with Brian. We went with him for fishing our own fish and that was really excellent prepared and served the day after. An exiting experience, fishing on the Great Ocean!
