In New Zealand, the trend is in one-room, high-end B&Bs. Examples include the contemporary, glass-walled KokohuiaLodge (www.kokohuialodge.co.nz; from about £128) overlooking Hokianga Harbour, an hour’s drive from the Bay of Islands, and The Sounds Retreat (www.thesoundsretreat.co.nz; from about £637 including dinner) close to Marlborough on South Island. The sole guests of this single suite have on-call guides at their disposal for hiking, biking, fishing or kayaking on the Queen Charlotte Sound (in view of the bedroom), while a private chef serves five-course dinners with the best New Zealand wines.
