We met Diane and Barry whilst on a 15 day Trafalgar Tour of Spain in June 2011. Immediately we became friendly in a 'holiday' mode. They were wonderful company. Diane mentioned they had a B & B + Trout Fly fishing business in Gore NZ. From the time we spent on tour we knew they would be good operators.
Late in 2012 we and friends from Perth Aus. decided to take holiday in the southern part of N Z and when I contacted Diane & Barry they gave us expert advice and posted tour maps etc but above all 'demanded' we call and stay with them at Gore.
On our arrival at their B & B residence we could not have dreamed just how wonderful it was. Our experience at Wentworth Heights B & B was the most rewarding of our whole NZ trip. Their home which they share with patrons is magnificant and blends beautifully with the nature of both Diane & Barry. At dinner Barry 'magically' had our full attention with his detail of 'Fly Fishing' and local knowledge and fish styories, but the coup was brekkie the following morning (compliments to both Diane & Barry) fantastic...as the saying goes..'something to die for'.
Thanks Diane & Barry for your wonderful friendship, your wonderful presentation and supurb hospitality. We both look forward to a reciprocal visit to our beachside home near Coffs Harbour NSW.
