Art themed boutique bed and breakfast in rural location close to Hobbiton

ArtHouse Bed & Breakfast is situated on the outskirts of Matamata where you can enjoy wonderful views of the Kaimai Ranges, Mt Te Aroha and the nearby Wairere Falls. Your stay here will allow you to relax in quiet, calm surroundings. The Hobbiton Movie Set at Shires Rest is just 20 minutes drive from ArtHouse.

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 us ideally situated on the outskirts of Matamata. We are just 9 minutes drive from Matamata and 20 minutes from Hobbiton. 

Our setting is delightful amid the soft contoured, gently rolling countryside  with lovely views of Mt. Te Aroha and the Kaimai Ranges. 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. We promise you a unique stay – culture in the country! Guests will also have the option to meet and handfeed our friendly alpaca - Madonna, Frida Kahlo and Cleo.  



ArtHouse B&B has three themed guest rooms to choose from overlooking the rolling hills of the Waikato.
