CHARMING CREEK BED AND BREAKFAST – B&B What makes us special
Enjoy stylish, relaxed comfort– just 20 minutes north of Westport.
The B&B is just 65 metres from Ngakawau Beach famous for its beautiful coloured stones, and wild shellfish. The Beach Nest (our self catering beach cottage) is ocean-edge in its own wild garden.
Use free wifi from anywhere in the B&B along with full Sky TV. Heat pre-prepared food, make a lunch and enjoy our guest kitchenette with fridge/freezer, microwave and tea and coffee making facilities.
We are a New Zealand Cycle Trail partner and proud of the superb mountain biking offered in the area from the easy grade Charming Creek to the mighty Heaphy Track to the challenging Grade 4 Old Ghost Road.
Great day trips closeby:
- Charming Creek Walkway (right behind us beside the Ngakawau River)
- North to Karamea, the Heaphy Track and the Oparara Basin Arches and Honeycomb Cave systems
- South and up onto the high plateau to Millerton, the Denniston Incline and underground train experience
- South to the Tauranga Bay Seal Colony, Charleston and UnderWorld Adventures in the Nile River glowworm caves
We are just three minutes from the start of one of the best walks in the area – Charming Creek Walkway – which can be broken up into short sections of 10 minutes to an hour – or become a five hour experience.
The 10.5km journey follows an old private railway line through native forest. Relics from the region’s past, cavernous tunnels, and several bridges help to tell the story of the railway that once hauled timber and coal out of the valley.
Incredible scenery abounds, with waterfalls, gorges, rivers, and dramatic views lining the walk.
