The space
Our home is unique and set in the quiet countryside of Abbey Caves. You will be sharing our home which provides space and great entertaining. People choose to stay at B&B type accommodation mainly because they want to meet the locals and learn more about the local area. Having grown up in the north we believe we will provide our guests with a great place to base from and explore the area.
We are passionate about our location which is just a few minutes from town, and provides a peaceful oasis. We have a stunning rural setting, plenty of native bird life and lots of things to see and do in the local area.

Location

Whareora, Northland, New Zealand

The Abbey Caves Reserve is a few minutes walk away. Experience a true caving adventure in any of the three caves, all of which have glow worms. You will need a torch and be prepared to get a little wet and dirty!
Or just enjoy the lovely walk around the spectacularly shaped limestone boulders in the 'rock forest'.

Visit the 500 year old kauri trees at the nearby AH Reed Memorial Kauri Reserve, with its tree top boardwalk; or walk the river track to the iconic Whangarei Falls; or venture along the Hatea River Walk to the Town Basin where numerous cafe's and restaurants are located.

Across the road from Abbey Barn B&B is a well established BMX Track great for cycling. A great walk up to the main look out point to give you the view of the city from Mt Pahakahi.. From there you can walk down into Mair Park and onto the Town Basin where there are numerous cafes and shops to enjoy.

Whangarei is an 'undiscovered gem' with fabulous beaches, forest walks, city walks, museums, art galleries, 10,000kms of dry stone walls in the area from the extinct volcanic cones, kiwi house, star gazing, good restaurants and shopping.

With a city / rural population of around 80,000 people, Whangarei is the largest city north of Auckland, a 2 hour drive away. We are 1 hour away from Paihia and the Bay of Islands, 1 hour from west coast beaches and only 30 minutes from some beautiful east coast beaches. Great surfing, fishing and swimming.

So Abbey Barn B&B is ideally placed to explore the area. Check out our reviews where previous guests have loved the location. We are so centrally located and there is so much to see and do in this part of the country.

We offer discounts for families and longer stays.

My partner, Darron and I love great food, cooking and spending time by the pool with good company and a laugh. A cold drink from the bar, making homemade pizzas to cook in the pizza oven, or even a bbq, creates our fantastic outdoor living space. Over the years we have hosted homestay students from German (Hamburg, Mainz), Spain, France, Brazil, China and Japan. Now our children are all adults we are looking forward to hosting other travelers looking to experience kiwi living at our beautiful location.
