Located in a tranquil rural setting in the lush Waikato region of New Zealand, the beautifully renovated Foxgloves Bed and Breakfast is an escape to the country. This traditional Victorian homestead, surrounded by rolling farmlands, takes you back to a bygone era where time stands still and you wake to the sound of bird song, farm animals and the smell of a good country style breakfast.

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.

We booked a weekend getaway at Foxgloves to get away from the kids and were not disappointed. This hidden gem provided the perfect place for us to relax and unwind. Grace, our friendy host, made us feel like royalty. We were provided a scrumptious breakfast every morning and a mouth watering meal for dinner. Grace and Patrick have spent alot of time and effort doing up the place in the old Victorian style and their attention to detail is outstanding! I would highly recommend taking the time to spend a night or two at Foxgloves. We will definitely be going back!

What can we say - this is our new 'bolt hole' from Auckland. Terrific hosts, very generous (to say the least) and tasty food, very comfy beds and a lovely lounge area. Old school (in a very good way) service that is too sadly lacking in most places. We felt really comfortable here and you know and feel that a great experience for every guest is really important. Beautiful setting and no problem with internet or cell reception. This place is totally about lux relaxing and escaping. We will definitely be back!

Booked on to stay at foxgloves for 2 nights with my partner but ended staying for 3! The accommodation is beautiful, the food & wine great value and the host amazingly accommodating. Would recommend to anyone as a lovely, peaceful getaway for some R&R way from the hussel and bussel of life to recharge your batteries.

We have just returned from a most memorable two day stay at Foxgloves Bed and Breakfast, hosted by Grace and Patrick. From the moment we arrived we were delighted with every aspect of this amazing Victorian Homestead, so beautifully furnished and serviced. Grace was a charming and most caring host who attended to our every need! Delicious meals were provided with many unexpected treats! The three bedrooms, dining room and lounge are separate from the host's accommodation. A fridge is available to chill your BYO wine and a coffee station with a Nespresso machine and an assortment of Nespresso capsules is provided. The isolation of Foxgloves ensures beneficial peace and quiet. Because Foxgloves is nestled among the rolling hills and surrounded by beautiful trees and garden we woke each morning to the sound of glorious birdsong and, a little later, to a rooster crowing. Pure magic!! Raglan was only a 25 minute drive from Foxgloves and well worth a visit with local art and craft for sale, trendy cafes, historic buildings, a fascinating Museum and a famous surfing beach. We will never forget Grace and Patrick's wonderful hospitality. We felt pampered and cared for in their warm, comfortable and beautifully furnished home and as a result we long to return....

We stayed 2 nights at Foxgloves over New Years. We absolutely loved it! The house is beautiful, and it's in a great spot. Our room had lovely french doors opening out to the hillside. Watching the sunrise out the doors from the comfort of our warm bed was amazing. Grace and Patrick were very gracious hosts and we were surprised with a bottle of Moet on New Years day morning! Patrick took our daughter out both mornings to collect eggs for our breakfast and she had a blast (we also had some time to enjoy a quiet coffee which was great as well!). We were impressed with the quality of wine Grace and Patrick provided. We also appreciated the after dinner liquer which had originally been made by Patrick's father. We would absolutely reccomend Foxgloves, it is a special place and Grace and Patrick are delightful!

We stayed at Foxgloves Christmas and Boxing Day and what a wonderful experience. To start with Foxgloves is magnificent... the Victorian homestead is so comfortable and with amazing decor. You step back in time when you enter the door, from the lavish bedroom and bathroom to the stunning living areas, everything is Victorian splendor! Set in a beautiful, peaceful surroundings with lovely gardens. A nice spot to sit and forget the hustle and bustle of the city, listen to the birds, resident sheep and chickens. Food, wow what a feast! Homemade pizzas from the pizza oven and for Christmas, roast pork, turkey and all the trimmings. Dessert was to die for, the best pavlova EVER! Grace and Patrick are wonderful hosts, wonderful people who make you feel totally at home. Spending Christmas with them will go down as one of our most memorable Christmas's in a very long time. If you are wanting a peaceful retreat in a luxurious homestead Foxgloves is the place for you!!!!

We stayed 1 night at this beautiful B & B and I wanted to stay much longer. The decor is in keeping with the victorian theme, all the way through the bedrooms, bathrooms and living & dining areas. It is just beautifu. We enjoyed dinner by way of the wood fire pizza oven, our 10 year old son especially enjoyed that. We got to then enjoy a soak in the hot tub, and then a quiet drink by the open fire in the courtyard. Our sleep was great, so quiet and our room had black out curtains which made it very easy to sleep in the next morning. Breakfast was also very, very good. As we had our young son with us, it was a treat for him to be allowed to feed the chooks, and check on the baby chicks that were there at the time. Patrick & Grace are such wonderful hosts, ensuring everything we needed was at hand. They have great knowledge of the area and things to see & do if you feel like getting out & about. A definate treat to stay here, and we will most definatley be back as soon as we can.

Where to start? There are so many good things to say about my stay at Foxgloves. The location may seem out of the way but that adds to the experience. The silence at night is amazing, so, so peaceful. Even during the day, it is rare to hear any noise other than nature during the day. The attention to detail regarding the decor is second to none. It is clear that a lot of love has gone into Foxgloves. The cleanliness is immaculate and you just sink into the beds to have a really good nights sleep. The food cannot be faulted, with fresh eggs from the resident chickens everyday and fresh vegetables from the garden. Finally, the owners Grace and Patrick. They are so accomodating, they made me feel so welcome and at home. It is truely a great place to stay.

Following such great recommendations we stayed for two nights at Foxgloves and loved it. Tony was busy but Cheryl looked after us like family. The Victorian themed room we stayed in was full of character and the accommodation comfortable. The location is ideal as a first or final stop before Auckland. Thoroughly recommended.

More like a 5* hotel than a B&B. The dinner was first rate! If described as a 'lodge' or something, they could & should charge double. Please go! A little difficult to find. My sat nav sent me the wrong way round....
