Situated half way between Nelson city and the Abel Tasman National Park, Upper Moutere is an area close to dozens of memorable/relaxing/challenging things to do with beautiful beaches, wineries, restaurants and cafes, fly fishing, talented artisans and so much more.

Walking distance from the cottage itself is Western Pleasure Horse Trekking as well as the Blackbird Valley Forge - a place where you can, by arrangement, make your own kitchen or hunting knife. Within five to eight minutes away is the Neudorf Sheep Dairy, The beautiful Neudorf Vineyard as well as the picturesque Upper Moutere Village with its general store/cafe, New Zealand's oldest pub and the old Post Office which now show cases goods make by local artisans.

The cottage is well insulated with an HRV system - so clean air, even temperatures and no foggy windows. There is a selection of games and dvds for your use. There are gas hobs and a generous bench top oven that is big enough to cook almost anything. Wi Fi available in the cottage.

The owners, who live in the straw bale house next door, milk house cows and goats and have a passion for cheese making and the self sufficient lifestyle. You can be involved with these activities as much or as little as you like. This is the perfect place to get stuck into all that this region as to offer or to simply chill out and relax with a glass of local wine. If you wish to phone us please use the landline number as we often don't take our cell phone out on the farm. 03 5432117

    The cottage was adorable, I used it to get ready for my wedding day at Mahana and then stayed there the night of my wedding with my new husband. It was quiet and relaxing, also very cool despite the summer heat. The lounge decor was modern yet charming and very comfortable. The bedroom was classic and romantic, and the bed was so comfortable! The little army of ducks that patrol the fields are fantastic! Would recommend as romantic get away or family vacation spot, love the rural setting.

    Great place to stay to explore the area. Carolyn was so generous with entertaining our kids (feeding geese, horse rides and puppies). Would definitely recommend this place to stay!!!

  • We had a fantastic time

    We had a fantastic time. The house was really nicely done and the farm views were beautiful and peaceful. Our view out the window at any point might include horses, cows, sheep, or goats. Our daughter really enjoyed riding the horses, feeding the ducks, milking the goat, and playing with the 6 little dogs. It was a great base for exploring the area, although just hanging out there was hard to resist.
