New Plymouth's Coastal Walkway isn't just a walking and cycling destination - it's good for fishing too.
Fishing in New Plymouth is so good at the moment you can even do it from the city's Coastal Walkway.
Surfcasting in the middle of the city! Further out big game fishers have started hauling in marlin, with as many as five caught over the weekend.
Only eels in the Patuha Pond...
My Partner & I checked in here for a relaxing time away. From the moment we arrived our hosts Harry & Sally were excellent. Our room was clean, great bed ( one of the best I have slept in) comfy pillows and a decent high-pressure shower. It was nice to switch off from the outside world....
I recommend everything about Patuha. I am almost afraid to because something this perfect you want to keep a secret from the marauding hordes but...PLB’nB for us was the ideal retreat for “recharge and go.” The Lodge is a beautiful 2km drive from the main road of Upper Pitone...
I revisited Patuha Lodge in January, this time taking my two daughters with me. We were just there overnight, but we were made so welcome by the lovely owners, made full use of the laundry facilities and the big spa bath, the very good wifi connection - and breakfast was splendid!
Great accommodation! Beautiful location right in the bush. Peaceful, clean and comfortable. Lovely host! We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommended it !
We all thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful hospitality at Patuha Lodge, its an awesome oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city! and yes we certainly did see the mountain on our return trip home.
