Gracious homey B&B, celebrating the rural

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Mar 2015
The B&B is located out in the countryside, 15 - 30 minutes from villages and towns of the Waipara Valley. You discover a gracious traditional house amid the fields and pastures (use your GPS!). Our room was very large, with a private door onto the terrace, and a nicely equipped bathroom. "Our" sitting room was just across the hall from our room, with chairs, settee and table, overlooking the lawn and sheep fields. Our hosts, both of whom are Dutch, were engaging, inviting us for wine and cheese before we left for dinner. They prepared a complete cooked breakfast with European touches. We really felt that we were guests in their house, not just travelers in an ordinary B&B.

A place been a bit on the blind spot before. This area is really worth to stay longer and this B & B would be the perfect base for that stay. The hosts are very welcoming, the rooms are just great. Overall it is quiet and comfortable. The dinner arrangement is a beautiful idea and you will get lots of information and tips from the hosts.

Room tip: All rooms are good.

We only stayed one night on this charming premises, which is probably worthwhile for a longer vacation. Woodgrove, an old farm with a history tenderly maintained by its owner, lies in a quite hilly region, ideal for hiking or visiting Christchurch, which is considerably less than one hour's drive. The mansion is impressive, equipped with antique, partly french furniture, a very cosy living room connected to a an open and spaceoius kitchen. The breakfast was superb.
We had the studio in a former workshop, a huge room with HVAC (both for cooling and heating), four beds, a well equipped kitchen and a bathroom.

Room tip: Whatever room you choose, they are quiet and clean.

We enjoyed our recent stay, in a comfortable room. It can be a bit hard to find, so happily we had directions in hand and were arriving in daylight. We had booked it because they provided an evening meal, which was well presented. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the bed outstanding. A huge walk-in shower with wonderful towels was a great start to the day. There's free WiFi to stay in touch. Hawarden is a small town, and there's little else around, so having dinner, bed and breakfast in the same place is ideal. Breakfast is normally at 9:00, but we asked for a little earlier, as we had a long day ahead, and they easily accommodated us. The owner recommended a back road to Amberley, and it was a perfect way to see the countryside. Well recommended.
