Welcome to Oaks Cottage, a delightful self contained unit located to the rear of our villa. It is set on our 10 acre farmlet in the heart of the beautiful Moutere Valley, where we breed Berkshire pigs from our very friendly pigs Beatrice and Barnaby. We also run a small flock of Suffolk sheep and keep a small brood of free range bantoms and chickens and the turkeys Miranda and Gary, guests are welcome to eggs and garden produce when available.

The stunning area is home to the Moutere Artisans with their boutique wines, olive oil, cider, cheeses, arts and crafts, as well as many fayres and festivals including the Sarau Festival which showcases the areas blackcurrant harvest along with local producers, arts and crafts.

We are ideally placed for exploring the Top of the South Island with access to the 'Great Taste Trail' only minutes away and 3 national parks on our doorstep, Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and the Nelson Lakes and Rainbow ski field, with the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Nelson only half an hour away.

  • The cottage is well equipped and comfortable

    The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. Great location for access to Abel Tasman park or just exploring the region. Loved having Jasper (resident dog) to shake paws with and pat! ?? Thank you

    We had a fantastic week in the middle of winter and enjoyed the cosy cottage with woodburner and beautiful rural surroundings. Super relaxing and very comfortable. Would definitely stay again :)

    Set beside a well tended garden, this cottage was cosy in early winter and well equipped for my short stay. Great care has been taken with the presentation, and the bedroom is of a very high standard. The kitchenette was adequate for cooking meals. The cottage served well as a base and was easy to relax in during the evenings. As I was alone the small table was sufficient, but for couples a more substantial one would increase options, eg for writing, playing cards etc, as well as dining.

    Beautiful setting, we absolutely loved the cottage and all the animals. Having breakfast with dogs Jasper and Patch was a fantastic start to our day. Will definitely go back!
