Our place is great for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and groups up to 4. You’ll love the friendly people, countryside views, clean and tidy guesthouse and of course the central location with many local attractions like the Hobbiton film set which is a must do for any fan of the movies.

The space

This guesthouse is located in the countryside on a working farm. It has great views all the way to a nearby mountain range directly from your bed across the rolling hills of the South Waikato countryside. The guesthouse itself is detached and private so you can come and go as you please with its own bathroom & tea and coffee making facilities. Cutlery, plates and a fridge are provided but the guesthouse does not have a kitchen. The room is clean, quiet, light and well aired. We are happy to help so feel free to ask if you need anything.

Guest access

This is a detached guesthouse with its own shower and toilet and green areas around it. The main house has a separate clothes washing machine which you are welcome to use. The guesthouse is located on our working farm and you are welcome to explore the nearby farm areas and the native bush which is just a short walk away.

Interaction with guests

We live on the farm and have lived in the area for many years so are able to help with any questions you have about things to see and do in the area or even where next to go on your adventure.

Other things to note

This is a working farm so its not uncommon to see the cows in nearby paddocks and tractors and machines working. Occasionally the livestock may be in paddocks nearby and then gates should be left as you find them.

I could not be happier with my stay at this place. The host had fantastic recommendations and the house is perfectly located. It's secluded, but still close to so many different unique locations worth visiting besides Hobbiton!

Only if I could give it more than 5 stars...! The place is wonderful with great views of the mountains and lush green fields. Gwynn had milk, chocolates on our arrival and to top it off, she prepared the NZ dessert Pavlova for us, since we couldn't find it anywhere... One of the best bnb stays, we ever had.. Highly recommended.

Gwynn's guesthouse was beautiful and made for a very comfortable stay. Our hosts were very friendly but also respected our privacy, making us feel as if we had our very own cabin on their beautiful property. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it for others!

Gwynn's home is in such an amazing area and their home was in the perfect location for the things we wanted to do. The hosts also gave us some additional tips for things to do in the area, one being the Blue Spring, which was beautiful! The bathroom sink was the only place to wash dishes, which was a challenge since it was very small, but it was manageable and we enjoyed our time there. We would definitely stay there again!

Linda we would have happily washed your dishes inside, perhaps we should note that in our manual. Thanks for very positive and helpful feedback.
