Fothergills on Mimiha
Just off the Pacific Coast highway – halfway between Te Puke and Whakatane in the Bay of Plenty.
The spectacular views from the top of the hill extend from Coromandel Peninsula to the East Cape
From Whakatane, take Thornton Rd past the airport, then continue on through Matata. 5 kms past Matata, turn left on to Mimiha Rd. (Look out for blue B&B sign.)
From Tauranga / Te Puke, follow SH2. 5 mins after sighting the sea, look for Pikowai Rd (do not go up it!)1km on, Mimiha Rd is the next turning right, just over the 2nd of two bridges. We are 840 metres up Mimiha Rd., well sign-posted.
Quiet, self-contained, high standard accommodation in a country location less than 1km off the Pacific Coast highway.
Our one-hectare garden surrounds the house and runs down to a parking area designed for garden visitors. As our guest, your car park is under cover right beside your entrance.
230 roses in harmoniously coloured beds give their greatest show late Nov-Dec. Perennials keep the show going through till autumn, plus there are trees and shrubs, a water feature, stream, lots of structures and some garden art. The pond area is great for walking the dog! Providing interest to all Horticulturists, we grow many vegetables, heritage and exotic.
And we love showing it to you!
