    20 mins from Nelson which in my mind is perfect. Go to sleep or wake up to the sound of cows, bee’s and birds. Perfect!

It has such a quaint and homely feel with immaculate attention to detail, everything has been thought of to make your stay comfortable and easy, you really feel like you're on holiday. It's full of beautiful details and fixtures with lots of history that goes with the build of the cottage. Such a romantic and special place. We fell in love with it and will be back!

    Staying at the Last Straw Cottage was a highlight of our Tasman trip. Luxurious but rustic. Rural but not too far. well priced for the experience. We felt like Royals with all the attention to detail and consideration. Brightwater is definitely worth a stroll up and down main street to view beautiful Historic Architecture. Very flat surrounds, perfect for cycling, all the way into Nelson if so wish. Brightwater Vineyards a good wine tasting experience.
