Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Whangarei Heads is such a fabulous area. Ocean Beach is huge and popular. There is good parking and bathrooms. Follow the trail for hiking. Then we drove over to Urquhart Bay where there is a smaller parking area. The walk over to Smugglers Bay was nice, even though a herd of big cows were very close to us! There were several other walks. The views are wonderful along the way.

We had the most wonderful three days at Bream Coast Head Walks. The lodge was immaculate and so incredibly cosy and relaxing and the care from Claire was incredible. Claire set us up with up to date information about the walk options nd even delivered us to the walks and picked us up afterwards! Extra touches like sweet, juicy watermelon after a hot day completed the care package! The food was exquisite and we ate every meal in the outdoor setting together. So many laughs, deep chats and a shared sense of adventure. The walks were challenging but do-able for a group of 40 something mums. I could not recommend this more - if in doubt, just book it in and bring a group of fun friends - it will make life time memories and some spectacular photos of the stunning views from on top the local mountains!

What an amazing trip! The walks are stunning with lots of options depending on ability, glad we did the more challenging Te Whara track on day 2 and walking poles were very helpful here.

Claire was the ultimate host and her friendly informative manner was superb. Her knowledge of the walks, weather and local area was so valuable and made this trip interesting and hassle free. Transport was super helpful. The food was an absolute highlight, super yummy and abundant and we enjoyed not having to cook for 3 days. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and would recommend going with the linen option.

Claire is an amazing host with excellent knowledge of the area, and has added extra special touches to make your time here very special. Fabulous food, a lovely, comfortable cottage and an outside bath to soak in after one of the many walks on offer in this beautiful part of Northland. The perfect place to unwind, spend time with friends and family, be in nature and relax.

Fantastic few nights away with old friends in a beautiful part of NZ. Several different walk options to suit all members of our group. Claire is a wonderful host - the home made food is delicious and the accommodation is comfortable and immaculately clean. We felt very well looked after. Highly recommend.

Perfect place for a memorable few days away with two of my oldest friends. Claire is an amazing host - excellent knowledge of the area and all the options for experiencing it. The lodge is a beautiful spot and the catering was superb, especially given two of our party had specialised dietary requirements. Highly recommended - we would love to go back again!

Wonderful long weekend away with colleagues and friends for a team bonding time. Claire is a fantastic host and really goes beyond to do and think of everything you will need for your trip - from amazing food, clear instructions for the walks and Epsom salts to dunk in the outdoor bath when you get back to the lodge. The only possible complaint...? the nocturnal conversations of the kiwi rummaging around in the bush keeping me awake! But really - I was delighted to hear them, such a treat. The walks can be matched to your ability and are challenging but not overly so. We met families with young kids on the trail, as well as fit people in their 50s - 70s, just like us. I'm planning my next trip to Bream Heads to walk the trails we did not manage to get to - 3 days was not enough.

Couldn't fault last week-end's fabulous adventure on the Bream Head Coastal Walk. Claire, our hostess, was brilliant and so accommodating. And the fantastic meals provided were the icing on the cake! My favourite moment was lying in the outdoor bath full of epsom salts & bubbles, with the sun shining on my face and the tuis and paradise ducks entertaining me. Will be back again one day .. I'm sure.

I have just returned from my 2nd time to Bream Head.
The whole experience from rebooking because of Covid, group numbers changing was made so easy due to Claire being so accommodating.
The food was fabulous and plentiful, the walks spectacular and everyone in our group enjoyed the whole experience.
Thanks Claire again for bring such a great host.
