The Jumping Trout Bed and Breakfast is the perfect retreat offering couples a private queen size room with ensuite overlooking stunning river and mountain views.
Situated 3.5km from Westport town, our Bed and Breakfast is private and quiet where you can relax with a good book. At the end of the day, sit back and relax in our outdoor spa where you can enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the spectacular views and sunset.
We are handy to local award winning restaurants, beaches and other tourist attractions, including Coaltown and Denniston Experience which give insights into the early coalmining days.
There are also many walks in the area, with the Seal Colony & Cape Foulwind Walkway being one of the most popular. Here you will find a well marked walking track that follows the coastline, crossing farmland along the way, and leads to viewing platforms directly overlooking the colony. You will be amazed with how quickly the scenery changes!
For the more adventurous Underwater rafting and adventure caving can be experienced at Charleston which is located 30km south of Westport
Inclusions and Amenities:
My husband and I enjoy hosting travelers and sharing our lovely piece of paradise.
The Jumping Trout B and B is a delightful place, overlooking a beautiful river valley. Our time with Leigh Ann and Patrick was short but very enjoyable. We arrived later than planned but they were gracious and welcomed us warmly. Our room was great with a comfortable bed and private bath. Leigh Ann made us a delicious breakfast and we had a chance to visit and learn a little about each other's lives. We highly recommend staying with them.
We loved everything about this place! It is a super-relaxing place with to-die-for views. It is close enough to Westport if you want access to the town, but far enough away that you can enjoy the complete solitude of this gorgeous place. Leigh-Anne and Patrick were the perfect hosts -- they served us a delicious breakfast, and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with them. In fact we hope that they will come and visit us in the States one day. WE HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS B&B.

Leigh-Anne's B&B is super cute, cozy, warm and comfy - with a great shower! She's a great hostess - we had lots of fun together in the time that we spent chatting and eating. Her company was a delight in addition to her feedback on what to do and where to go, along with the amenities - makes this a great stay! Especially if you want to check out the Karamea area.
Leigh-Anne and Patrick were great hosts. Extremely friendly and polite and Patrick has some great stories to tell. The place is absolutely gorgeous, set in the lush NZ country side with amazing views of the river and a beautiful garden surrounding the house. The room was great, with a lovely bed, excellent on suite and super quiet.
Leigh-Anne was a great hostess. It was fun to talk to her and her husband, Patrick. The spa was a welcome relief at the end of a long day of driving. The view is amazing!
The Jumping trout B&B is a great accomodation with lovely hosts, a very comfortable room, amazing views and a really great breakfast!!! We definitely recommend staying here!
We had a wonderful and cozy time with Leigh-Anne and 'Uncle Pat'. They have a stunning view and were really superb hosts - breakfast was great, the bed comfy, parking easy... and so on. Just note that their house is a few kilometres outside of town, but we had a car so didn't mind at all, and further preferred this to any of the motels in town.
This is just outside Westport with an amazing view over the whole valley and Buller river. The studio is very nicely set-up so it's connected to the house but feels quite separate. Leigh-Anne and Patrick are really good hosts and we were treated to a delicious breakfast including eggs that had just been laid by their own chickens. We were only here for one night but it was a perfect stop on our travels down the West Coast.
The Jumping Trout is a wonderful B & B - an oasis in the middle of the South Island. The accommodation was excellent and so clean. Leigh-Anne looked after us so well. We enjoyed a glass of wine with her in the evening and she made us a delicious breakfast with fresh eggs from her hens.
Sorry we missed Patrick. Thanks again Leigh-Anne.
We had a fantastic stay at The Jumping Trout. Leigh-Anne and Patrick were lovely hosts - it felt like we were staying with family! The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated and the views are beautiful. We would recommend The Jumping Trout to anyone travelling to the area.
