This was the first B&B that I have stayed in. If I ever come back to New Zealand I will definitely stay here again. I felt right at home and the homemade bread was everything I had read about. Delicious!!! I cannot recommend this enough.

Buckland BnB is absolutely idyllic. It is clean, serene and just town the road from Hobbiton. Plus Tracy made us a fresh, delicious loaf of bread!

Wonderful stay

Buckland BnB was the perfect location for our one-night stay in Matamata on our honeymoon. We did the Hobbit banquet feast and the place is so close that getting to and from the Shire was a breeze (thanks in large part to our kind host!). The fresh baked bread in the morning was amazing, and the room was clean and comfortable. The landscape is also simply lovely -- right in the middle of sheep country! We loved our stay.
