We stayed at this B&B for two night whilst touring New Zealand. What a find! You can either stay in the main house or in an old miners cottage in the grounds (which we did). It was clean, well furnished and used the natural materials found in the grounds, including rain water to wash in. The doors and wood used inside the cottage were all from the trees around the grounds! It is a little difficult to find but well worth the effort. The hosts, Alastair and Harriette are the most charming of hosts that I have ever come across. Friendly, informative and incredibly helpful. We enjoyed Alastair's guided tour of the night sky, first he explained the key stars and planets with the naked eye and the we were treated to a view of these using his own telescope. Not only did he entertain us with his knowledge of the stars but he also explained and showed us some interesting geological artifacts. This place is excellently located, just right for visiting the local area which the hosts will tell you all about and make recommendations to help you decide where to visit. They even lent us maps and a spade for using down at the Hot Water Beach, go on try it! I can not recommend this place enough, we shall certainly be visiting again! Thank you to such excellent hosts!
