Tracy is amazing! Such a sweet lady! Brought us a fresh loaf of bred last night for breakfast this morning. Cereal, milk, juice, tea, coffee, cookies all reasy for us! Even had the ice cube tray filled! The bathrobes are super soft, bed is comfy and shower is amazing. Not too mention the view when you wake up. There are a xouple of horses across the road, sheep in the pen and a cat named Millie to greet all guests! Wonderdul stay and highly recommend it to anyone.

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.

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.
