Welcome to Ashfields, a quality self-contained bed and breakfast, set within a beautiful country garden and kiwifruit orchard in the heart of the sunny Bay of Plenty. Only 40-50 minutes from both Rotorua and Tauranga, and 20 minutes from Whakatane, Ashfields is the perfect base from which to explore the sunny Bay of Plenty. 

Stay a few days at Ashfields (unpack only once) and enjoy relaxed, luxurious accommodation in between exploring the different sights around the region. Within easy access you'll find:

  • WHAKATANE and surrounds, a delightful small town with many excellent cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. 
  • Fabulous coastal bush walks and one of the best beaches in NZ are within easy reach.
  • At least two excellent golf courses, kayaking, fishing, jet boating and of course the not to be missed trip to WHITE ISLAND, an active volcano which can be accessed by boat or helicopter.
  • Then there is swimming with dolphins, diving, snorkelling.....
  • Rotorua is an easy day trip away (45mins drive) past beautiful lakes and bush or go via TAURANGA And MOUNT MANGANUI (1hr drive) - a lovely coastal drive.

Return at the end of the day to the peace and quiet of a large country garden, a dip in the pool, drinks on the deck and maybe one of Kate's bbq hampers to cook at your leisure on your private guest bbq.
