Welcome to Clover Downs Estate, a luxury bed and breakfast retreat in Rotorua, New Zealand

Welcome to Clover Downs Estate, a luxury bed and breakfast retreat in stunning rural surroundings near Rotorua. Enjoy the comfort of superior accommodation while experiencing authentic New Zealand farm life.

Clover Downs is a unique place to stay. Situated just 15 minutes from Rotorua in the secluded country setting of Ngongotaha, it is a B&B farmstay experience like no other, catering for single travellers, couples and families. Large comfortable rooms provide you with a place to rest and relax in peace and tranquillity, while sheep, ostriches and deer graze on the green paddocks surrounding the house.

Clover Downs gives you an unparalleled opportunity to get up close to farm animals. Take the complimentary farm tour, feed ostrich by hand, see trained sheep dogs rounding up sheep, get within a few feet of a majestic deer and feed the Alpaca's. In the evenings, enjoy a glass of wine on your own private veranda overlooking lush pasture.

Your hosts, Mike and Sharon Ferris, will ensure that your retreat is comfortable and memorable. They can also help arrange other activities so that you can experience all that Rotorua has to offer – geothermal wonderlands with geysers and bubbling mud pools, the rich Maori culture, excellent fishing, sightseeing and other exciting pursuits. Or you can travel further afield to Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, Whakatane, Taupo and Waitomo.

Stay at Clover Downs Estate, enjoy fine country accommodation, get close to nature, breathe the country air.
An authentic kiwi experience.
