What a treat it was to spend time at the Earthstead and to meet the delightful owners. We stayed in the Earth House--much larger than what we needed and absolutely lovely. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we both had a wonderful night sleep. We purchased the breakfast and it was truly worth it! Homemade cheese, jams, and bread, along...

Despite only having one night in this fantastic location this place really left a lasting impression with both myself and my wife on our honeymoon. The service was wonderful, friendly and helpful and our room (the French suite) was beautiful! The snack in the evening was a fantastic surprise and the breakfast with all of the homemade ingredients was divine....

Delightful night at the French Suite at Earthstead Villas in Cambridge NZ. We were on the way back from Lake Tarawera and wanted a stop before going all the way in to Auckland. This was a pleasant alternative to nearby Hamilton and as Cambridge is quite horsy, enjoyed the various horse portrait mosaics in the pavement and the coffee shop...

We stayed 1 night in the French Villa which was very cute with it's own private little garden and verandah. It is located within a working farm which the charming hosts Suzy and Alistair have managed with great passion for 35 years (you can hear the milking cows mooing in the distance!) Suzy brought us a welcome platter on arrival...

Reviewed 5 March 2015

We stayed here for one night just so that after we finished our evening dinner tour of the nearby Shire we wouldn’t have to drive all the way back to Auckland in the dark. For that purpose, this B&B is convenient. However, it’s a bit more rustic than we would have preferred; I wouldn’t recommend it as a romantic destination....

Our family of four just stayed in the Earth House for two nights. The house was amazing with all the luxurious features one would long for in his own home. We could feel the love and passion Al and Suzie had put into building the house. Wish we could stay longer and would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Stayed here recently, and really had a good night's sleep. Property was easy to find, and close to Cambridge. Room was comfortable; the single knob for hot and cold water in the shower took some trial and error to work out. We really enjoyed the breakfast, but the fresh milk and cream did not agree with our stomachs (perhaps supplying...

We only spent one night here but the accommodation was superb and the hosts very helpful. It is relatively close to Hobbiton so a good stop when going to visit. Gandalf stayed here during his filming so that is interesting.

we stayed here at 11/26-11/27 2014, everything is perfect...the environment, the food they provided, the cozy room..... Mr. and Mrs. Earthstead are very nice and our 5-year-old son and us really had a good time here. We will surely come here again next time we visit Cambridge. 很有意思的農家樂民宿。 房間乾淨典雅舒適,農場有飼養雞豬乳牛。。一到住宿還奉上自制小点心,餐點也是有機的。 老闆和老闆娘很nice,對小朋友很友善,兒子玩的很開心...據老闆說hobbition的甘道夫在拍攝期間也有來這裡住吔~~房間數不多,環境很好,可盡享田園風光~~

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you are looking for luxury accommodation that is close to Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves, we have a little piece of paradise waiting for you. Our accommodations are at two sites, both very close to the lovely town of Cambridge. The Earth House, Cob Cottage, French Studio, Read House and our Glamping on-site campervan, are situated on 3ha (7 acres) of prime organic farmland, 4 km from Cambridge and are surrounded by native trees, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. You can even request to view Alistair milking our serene jersey house cows and taste milk directly from the cow. We serve this raw milk in each of the accommodations situated at Earthstead. A delicious breakfast of organic goodness can be ordered for an extra cost at time of booking when you stay on the Earthstead site. For those guests who want to be a little closer to the restaurants and boutique shopping in Cambridge (20,000 people), our Cambridge River House is situated just 3 min walk from the main street. Breakfast is not available to guests who stay at Cambridge River House. All these accommodation options are centrally located for day visits to : Hobbiton, Waitomo Caves, Hamilton Gardens, Sanctuary Mountain, Rotorua, Lake Taupo, Coromandel, Auckland, Raglan, Tauranga, Ski Fields Ruapehu & much more! They each have access to private gardens, free wifi and free parking. The accommodations are serviced daily, except Read House and Cambridge River House, which are serviced weekly. ... more   less
