Ngapuke Farm is a 7 minute drive from the town of Matamata made famous by Hobbiton. The farm looks across rolling hills, down to Matamata and to the Kaimai Ranges. You will be hosted by the owners of the property Debbie and Paddy.
A full breakfast is included in the price (think Bacon, Eggs, Toast, Cereal, Fruit).
If guests desire, Debbie can put on a home cooked roast of lamb, chicken, pork or a steak if guests prefer at an additional cost of $35/hd including a glass of wine or beer.

The space

The homestead is a lovely space with views out of every window. The 4 guest rooms are scattered through the house. There are lots of sitting rooms to relax in, or if you prefer to sit in the shade on any one of the numerous terraces or if you are the competitive type there is also a billiard/pool table.
In summer there is a swimming pool which guests are free to use (and is fenced if you have kids).

Guest access

There is parking at the front door of the house and a few steps up into the house, or you can walk around the rear of the house for step free access. The bedrooms are all easily accessible, however the bathroom facilities are not set up for and disabled access.

Interaction with guests

As it's a working farm Debbie and Paddy are never far away and will always be in residence when there are guests. They are more than willing to help out while your staying and enjoy socialising with their guests. Alternatively, if you prefer there are lots of quiet spaces you can curl up with a book in front of the fire or on the terrace and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Other things to note

Paddy or Debbie can give you a tour over the farm (it's 600 acres!!) if time allows.

I longed for a secluded B&B with expansive green rolling hills and that is exactly what I got! This farm in Mata Mata has a home over 100 years old but every single room has a magnificent view! This is a cattle and sheep farm and three young lambs were on the house property when my daughter and I visited. This is not your typical B&B with cold cereal left for you. Debbie provided a full on breakfast of sausages, eggs, tomatoes, juice, toast and coffee or tea. The thing we enjoyed the most was talking with Debbie and Paddy about their lives and work on the farm. The early morning sunrise provides one of the most spectacular views you will experience! This is one peaceful place!

A beautiful farm, a warm home. The airline made a mistake with my luggage before I coming here. Here, I got Debbie's care and help. Food and coffee taste great... With their help, I have found the luggage and continued the good journey of New Zealand. Thank you very much and will come back again...
