We have several wonderful Bed & Breakfast’s, Lodges and Baches around us which we would recommend people to stay whilst they are experiencing the wonders of Northland.

-  Treghan Luxury Retreat is rated one of the best places to stay in Northland. Anna and Murray will make you feel right at home. (

- If you want a beautiful place to stay at Whangaroa Harbour, make sure you book in with Shaun + Judy at Waimanu Lodge.  They have been said to be better than Kauri Cliffs!

- For somewhere REALLY special and very romantic there is Magic Cottage at Takou Bay.  Ian and Anna have created an amazing place.

- Moon Gate Villa is a 5 star rated bed & breakfast located just off the road into Kerikeri.  The unique house was designed for a ‘Mills and Boon’ writer, and its shape inspired by ‘Cupid’s bow’. Set amongst 1.5 acres of romantic gardens, waterfalls and reflective pools, it is also well located to the town, and just a short stroll to the Old Packhouse Markets and Makana chocolate shop and café. for more detail
