Being townies, and Auckland Jaffas, this was something different for us to experience as a couple. A weekend in the west wing of a county home.
We were greeted by Linnie and Peter and were able to drive to the access door of our independent wing. We unloaded our luggage into our north facing sunny enormous bedroom. Our bed was an enormous Californian king with sumptuous down-filled thick duvets. Crisp like new linens. The whole place exuded comfort and cleanliness.
The directions to Amberfields made it very easy for us to locate. The whole home is very spacious and warm. The outlook to cows and calves is great, even free-range chickens wondering around. Little did they, or we know, that we would be eating their eggs for breakfast.
After a wonderful night's sleep we were greeted with wonderful breakfast. The table setting was beautiful china and silver. Starting with fresh fruit salad followed with cooked bacon, freshly laid eggs, tomatoes and home-made bread and a selection of home-made jams.
Our adventure was to drive up Mt Pirongia and take in the vast Waikato farm views followed by a lovely organic lunch at a local Pirongia cafe.
Overall, summing up our experience was wonderful with Linnie and Peter. Amberfields is a very spacious comfortable clean homestead that we highly recommend.
