Our modern B&B is peaceful with a rural setting. Enjoy your own garden area & hot tub under the stars with rural & sunset views. Only minutes drive from Matamata which has supermarkets, restaurants, pubs etc and 10 minutes' drive from Hobbiton Movie Set Tours. Breakfast (self serve in your own kitchenette) included.

*Please note you need your own private transportation to stay here - there are no taxis or public transport in our cute little country town!

The space

The apartment is equipped with kitchen facilities, spacious bathroom and a bedroom that can sleep two singles or a couple (King size). There is a lounge area with couch and coffee table, leading out sliding doors to your own garden area with table and chairs.

A heat pump allows you to set your comfortable temperature, keeping you cool in summer and toasty warm in winter. The sliding door and bedroom window have fly-screens so you can open these up without flies and other insects bothering you.

Guest access

You will have your own garden area with table & chairs, leading to an outdoor hot tub that you are welcome to use. Own separate front & back entrance. The B&B is semi-detached - it has a large double garage next door, with the owners' house on the other side of the garage.

You are welcome to take a stroll around the orchard and garden areas.

There are plenty of books & magazines and DVDs to keep you entertained if you feel like relaxing inside.

Although we have free wi-fi available to you we are rural so it is not particularly fast compared to a city environment and it is on limited data. Still perfect for browsing the web, emails etc.

Interaction with guests

We are a warm and welcoming family but have a busy orchard and greenhouse to run so we wont be in your face all the time! Our door is always open for questions of course. We respect our guests' privacy but also enjoy meeting our guests - it's up to you on the level of interaction you prefer.

Other things to note

Did you know that Hobbiton does special evening dinner tours twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays? Enjoy a banquet in the Green Dragon! The tour finishes quite late so our place is a perfect place to stay after the tour being only a few minutes' drive away. We have heard only the highest praise from guests about the evening tours. Book early to avoid disappointment!

What a beautiful place! Excellent communication, the place was spotlessly clean and there was an electric blanket for the cold night. Kitchen fully equipped and breakfast left. Gorgeous hot tub under amazing stars with a very friendly cat. Serene and lovely.

Tieneke and Frans were great hosts! They welcomed us and showed us around when we got there and gave suggestions of where to go. The space was nice for two people and the breakfast was tasty! The location was great if you are wanting to visit Hobbiton but it is a decent distance to other places. Would recommend if you are going to Hobbiton!

A good place for a short stay with a relaxing spa. Delicious feijoas supplied from the surrounding orchard - yum! Make sure you use the fly screens as flies were a real problem for us.

Such a great spot! The space was lovely with a view of the orchard. If you are in town for Hobbiton it is truly the perfect location and the hosts are wonderful as well!

I'm part of a family team of four - my partner Talbert and his parents Frans & Tineke. We all run our orchard, greenhouse & B&B together. Talbert, Frans & Tineke are originally from Holland but were lured away by New Zealand's beauty and ideal lifestyle. We love sharing our little slice of paradise with our guests and are passionate about growing sustainable, quality produce. Looking forward to meeting you!
