The perfect B&B getaway in Katikati, NZ

 

Nestled in the slopes of the Kaimai Mountain Ranges, Rod and MaryAnne Calver would like to welcome you to Aberfeldy Farmstay. As a farm, the property is also home to a small contingent of Sheep, Pigs, Cattle and Horses as well as two pet Dogs. Guests are welcome to enjoy the fresh country air by going for short walks on the property, and even participate in simple farm activities for a truly authentic New Zealand farm experience.


We have two rooms available:
 

1. One queen bed + one single bed

A queen plus single configuration

2. Two single beds

And a twin single configuration

You are welcome to book either room, or both for larger groups. We can accommodate up to 5 guests. Please note we try to accommodate only one group at a time to give you total privacy.

The well appointed queen plus single bedroom and generous private lounge area both open out onto the courtyard and garden. You also have your own outdoor dining table where you can relax in the warm summer climate the area is know for. In the cooler months you can bask in the warm winter sun late into the afternoon from the comfort of the private lounge.

More than just a Bed & Breakfast

Because of the downturn in the dairy industry we are no longer grazing dairy heifers, and we are now back to being a sheep and beef unit. 

Although the Horses get the best view on the Farm, they do have to work for a living. Horse riding is available nearby, and there are beautiful Bush Walks in the area including the Lindemann Loop. If you continue 2 km up the road to the end you'll find a lookout with stunning views of the Western Bay of Plenty.

We have 2 pet Kune Kune pigs called Dotty and Piglet. Both love attention and food. We have an Australian Terrier called Monty who is allowed in the house and an elderly sheep dog called Pearl who would love to be allowed to come into the house as well! Both dogs will warmly welcome you on arrival. We do allow our guests to bring their own dogs to experience some country life.

Our ageing horses still take us on some fabulous horse treks. The 2 horses we have now (Inkey and Blue) have both been as far north as Cape Reinga and as far south as Wanaka. They both love attention too-especially if its food.

Your hosts, Rod & MaryAnne

Rod and MaryAnne have lived in Katikati for longer than either would divulge. Rod has been very involved in the Kiwifruit Industry (The leading industry in the region) since 1973, and is still a Zespri Ambassador. He is also a very community minded person and member of the local Rotary club. MaryAnne has a background in hosting guests on a small farm in Rotorua and is a self professed 'horsey person'. The garden is MaryAnne's territory, however Rod is known to prune the odd rose bush. The two have multiple shared interests including cycling, walking, travel, reading and horses. 

We assure you of a warm welcome and look forward to your visit,

Rod & MaryAnne
