This bed and breakfast is located in Matamata, North Island, and is situated only a few minutes away from the world famous Hobbiton movie set that was used for the epic fantasy, The Lord of the Rings. Apart from the set, Matamata itself is a wonderful place to explore, with an abundance of charming cafes and shops to discover. There are so many notable locations dotted around the nearby area, including the breathtaking Mount Maunganui on the very tip of a headland in Tauranga touching the Bay of Plenty, surely one of the country's best coastal regions. It's around 65 kilometers to Lake Rotorua, another fascinating body of water that's known as a haven for water sports and fishing.

Guests should make sure they get up nice and early and travel to the spectacular Waitomo Caves for the glow worm experience, only an hour away and definitely worth the trip. The closest airport is in Rotorua, but for international flights, guests will need to use Auckland Airport, around 150 kilometers north of the property.
