Our Guests Have To Say About Wentworth Heights B&B:
"My father and I arrived at Wentworth Heights after a 13 hour flight,
4 hour layover and 2 hour drive from Dunedin to the feeling we were being
greeted by good friends we’d just met. We were asked what we’d like to do after
all that travelling; my father and I looked at each other, shrugged and said
“why not?”. Less than an hour later we’d landed our first Mataura Browns to the
boisterous “Well Fought!!” of our guide, Barry. Our stay with Barry and Diane
couldn’t have been better. Each morning started with a more than generous
breakfast and friendly conversation, and each evening finished with drinks in
the family room and stories of our day of fishing. Our rooms, private en suites,
were roomy, quiet and comfortable, more like staying at the home of a good
friend than a lodge. On the days we fished on our own Barry made sure we had
access to good fishing spots, a description of the fishing at each, and the
right flies in hand. All this at a fraction of the cost of traditional fishing
lodges. At the end of our stay Barry sent us off with directions to some of his
favourite fishing holes throughout the South Island and pockets full of flies
that worked well at each spot. In short, a fishing trip and stay with Barry and
Diane is more than just a good value. It is superb by any standard, and we will
certainly be returning."

guiding, Genuine hospitality and Gastronomically satisfying
Sam & Fred Cordeiro - Singapore
"Friends ask me why I keep returning to Gore when there are so many other
good places to fish in New Zealand. It is just such a great experience staying
with Diane and Barry and fishing the Mataura River. Barry is an outstanding
guide and has such an intimate knowledge of this magnificent river system with
its large population of superbly conditioned brown trout. And you are spoilt for
choice when it comes to fishing locations. There are just so many good river
access points ranging from right in the town to just a short drive away: Vehicle
access takes you almost to the water’s edge. Barry also has quite a few special
spots on the properties of his farmer mates and these provide tremendous fishing
not experienced by many other anglers visiting the region. After a day on the
water it’s a real pleasure to come “home” relaxing, over nibbles and drinks,
with Diane and Barry and discussing the day’s adventures and planning the next.
And then there are Dianes delicious evening meals. It’s a real family
Ian Farrant - Canberra, Australia
"Dear Barry, I just wanted to thank you for such a great time on the
river we had with you. Everything was perfect from the lunch, scenery, company
and the fishing itself. I still can’t believe how many fish you got us into and
the quality of them! It is easy for a guide to just point the client in the
right direction and let them get on with it but your knowledge, professionalism
and love of the river shone through during the day and I know we would have
never found that spot on our own! Your B+B was the perfect spot for us to crash
after a hard days fishing and Diane cooked without a doubt the best breakfasts
we had on our trip to the South Island. The rooms were perfect and the whole
experience was awesome! Thank you both again."
