We chose the barn as website mentions privacy, relaxing and kitchen. The kitchen is fine. The furnishings downstairs simple but fresh. However, found it neither private nor relaxing. Location is great, hosts pleasant but the only view from the barn is the main house and gravel driveaway. Despite being in the countryside it feels claustrophobic to have such a large...

I have been sick for two days after reading this the very first review that has not given us a 100% satisfaction rating. Firstly the reviewer is correct that this apartment is part of our main farm barn and does have several metal roller doors which can be noisy when being opened (but they are standard domestic size doors) but...

Warkworth Country Retreat is a first class Bed and Breakfast that outshines the competition with its stunning architectural design and a most welcoming host. Directions are not needed to find the establishment on Woodcocks Road, as the elegant tree-lined driveway that weaves its way up the hill is nothing short of eye-catching from the road. Clean, tidy and comfortable, I...

Fantastic place to stay, close enough to everything you need, tucked far enough away from the world but still a short drive to warkworth and the matakana region. This is THE place to stay if you are planning on a trip to the area... Lovely baked ginger crunch in the kitchen was a nice bonus.. Only regret is that we...

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. It is a beautifully designed facility in a lovely location run by very welcoming people. The facility offers privacy that isn't often found in a B&B. The B&B hostess, Maria, provided a wonderful breakfast and invaluable information on the best local and North Island locations to visit. We will definitely plan to...

A first class B & B which lives up to its high rating. The location is perfect for a quiet country escape, but close enough to Warkworth and nearby beaches......don't miss Omaha Beach. Our host, Maria, was very welcoming and provided the extra special touches of a home-baked cake on arrival, and a pre-dinner glass of wine.

A great B&B in the countryside outside Warkworth. Arrived late afternoon and left the next day, but thoroughly enjoyed the excellent hospitality. We had our own suite, with en-suite facilities, lounge and kitchenette - all very spacious, and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the late afternoon sun. Even a couple of complimetary beers in the fridge, welcome after a...

This was certainly the best B&B we sampled during our 3 week stay in NZ including the south island. The rooms are beautifully decorated with luxury linens and towels and the guest lounge was excellent, especially as we wanted to stay in one evening as had a busy schedule. Maria helped us by suggesting local activities, provided some delicious cake...

Thank you for your wonderful review. It was quite an honour to hear you say our B&B was the best in NZ!. It was pleasure having you stay with us. One regret was not having time to visit Robin Hood country when we travelled to England in 2011. Maybe next time! Bless you both.

Lovely rural views from the private guest lounge and dining room. Warm welcome from Maria, everything fresh and clean, and delicious breakfast in the morning. Stay here and save money instead of the more expensive places 10 minutes up the road in Matakana! Highly recommended.

Thanks Maria for a wonderful final night of our first and hopefully not last trip to New Zealand. Were pleasantly surprised when we arrived, B&B accomodation is separate from the main house which gave us privacy. Our room was large, immaculately furnished and spotlessly clean.

We were booked in an Auckland hotel for our final night in New Zealand, but after having spent one hectic night in Auckland a few days before, we couldn't bring ourselves to return to the rat race.
