Property Description

If you are looking for a place to relax and refresh, either for a short break or as part of your holiday in NZ, then this is just such a place. Ashfields is the perfect central point from which to explore the whole of the beautiful Bay of Plenty for as long as you wish to stay.

Ashfields offers luxury accommodation, that, while attached to the main house, is very self-contained with a separate guest bedroom, ensuite, living room and kitchenette. French doors open onto a private courtyard garden and deck with a BBQ for guest use.

We also offer a bedroom upstairs in the main house, with private guest bathroom downstairs, if two couples are travelling together.

All bedroom linen is 100% pure cotton. The duvets are feather or pure cotton depending on the season.

We can provide a delicious continental breakfast, or you can order a cooked breakfast. We also offer BBQ hampers or light meals which are especially good to have on arrival if you are tired after a long journey.

You are free to wander in the garden and orchard, swim in the pool, play petanque, hit a few golf balls in the adjoining paddock - or just relax on the deck with a good book!

Your hosts Kate and Russ will ensure your stay is all you could wish for. We have lived in the area for 25yrs and over that time we have developed our kiwifruit orchard, our home and surrounding 2 acres of garden.

Should you wish to venture out, Whakatane and the surrounding area has much to offer with fabulous walks, beaches and many outdoor activities such as White Island tours, fishing, diving, kayaking and golf.

We are about 50 minutes from Rotorua and Tauranga and the gateway to the beautiful East Coast

"From the moment we turned into the drive at Ashfields we thought we had stumbled into a little slice of paradise. The gardens are superb and very relaxing and the house is superb and immaculately kept. A large, light comfortable bedroom, a small but excellently stocked kitchen, a bathroom I would love to have at home with a large walk in shower and the largest lounge we encountered on our trip to New Zealand. It was a delight to stay there and we could easily have stayed a week (or more!). Kate cooked us some wonderful meals - much better than going into Whakatane 19 klms away. We could have taken these on our own private decking but Kate and Russ are such wonderful and interesting hosts that we took our meals with them. It was like staying with friends. Ashfields was certainly one of our favourite places during our whole 6 week trip."

"Recently I had the opportunately of staying at Ashfields. From the moment we drove through the gate and were greeted by Kate and Russ and their two beautiful very well behaved dogs Leo and cassie, we felt spoilt to be in such a beautiful setting with such lovely people. The accommodation is superb, every comfort is to be found here. I am not a good sleeper at the best of time but I slept like a baby, the bed and linen was beautiful to sleep in. We decided to have a very spoily time and had our lunch and dinner prepared and bought to our dining area which overlooked the beautiful garden and pool. Fresh produce was used for our meals which were presented beautifully and very tasty. Our breakfasts were continental,yummy.Cooked breakfast was available should you want it. (Thanks Kate) Value for money, there would be nothing around that would match this .I am planning to return to Ashfields in the very near future and do recommend a weekend away here. makes you feel a million dollars. Thanks again for sharing you lovely home and thanks Russ for your knowledge of the history of the area,we chatted about it for some time after arriving back at the Mount."
