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 thriving centres of Mapua, Tasman, Upper Moutere and Motueka are all within 5-10 minutes drive, boasting cafés, boutique shops and numerous arts and crafts. Only 20 minutes away and you discover the golden beaches of Kaiteriteri and Marahau, the gateway to Abel Tasman National Park.

  • A little piece of paradice in the countryside

    A little piece of paradice in the countryside. Wonderful for a quiet, romantic, private getaway. A very comfortable bed with lovley linen, and all the home comforts. Only about half an hour away from the breathtaking Able Tasmin national park and half an hour from Nelson. We will be recommending this cottage to all our friends. A great find and very good value for money.
