ArtHouse Bed & Breakfast

Boutique country hospitality filled with art treasures just 20 minutes drive from Hobbiton. Our setting is amidst gently rolling countryside with lovely views of the Kaimai Ranges, Mt. Te Aroha and the Wairere Falls.

ArtHouse B&B is situated on the outskirts of Matamata (just 9 minutes drive away).

ArtHouse B&B is owned and operated by Denise & Bruce - our home is full of art treasures collected from around New Zealand and overseas over some 20 something years. If you have a love of art, you’ll be interested to stay with us in one of our three guest rooms when you visit the Waikato region of New Zealand. You’ll find ArtHouse B&B offers a quiet and restful country stay but is close to excellent restaurants, cafes and shopping in the small village of Matamata. Drive to the Hobbiton Movie Set in just 20 minutes. We promise you a unique stay - culture in the country and a chance to interact with our three gorgeous alpaca girls - Madonna, Frida & Cleo.
