Welcome to Oaks Cottage, a delightful self contained unit located to the rear of our villa. Although attached to our villa, Oaks Cottage is completely independent and privately accessed. It is set in 3.5 acres of gardens and small paddocks, in the heart of the beautiful and thriving rural Moutere Valley. We have 2 very friendly Berkshire pigs Beatrice and Barnaby and 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 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, Upper Moutere and Motueka are all within 5 to 10 minutes drive, boasting cafes and restaurants, wine bars, micro breweries, boutique shops and numerous arts and crafts. Our closest beach is at Kina, this stunning quiet and expansive beach is only minutes by car, just beyond the lovely little village of Tasman where you can grab a great coffee or better still a real fruit ice cream to enjoy, while walking along this often deserted beach. Further more, only 25 minutes drive away are the stunning golden beaches of Kaiteriteri and Marahau, the gateway to Abel Tasman National Park.

A hearty welcome is assured from our friendly dog Jasper and Gary the Turkey and you may also be paid a visit from one of our friendly cats. We know you will have a lovely time exploring the area and look forward to your visit.

    Great location, everything within a short driving distance. Close to Motueka, Takaka and Nelson. Quiet and beautiful cottage, well equipped to meet our needs. We managed to make a full Christmas lunch with no trouble. Would recommend. Would stay again.
