Beautifully restored historic cottage close to centre of Nelson, Nelson's famous Saturday market, Trafalgar Park, the Trafalgar Centre and acclaimed waterfront restaurants and Nelson's best fish and chip shop. Set in an award winning garden, Blackmore Cottage was built in 1855 and is one of the oldest cottages in Nelson city. Fully furnished, beautifully restored with all modern facilities it is warm and comfortable, ideal for short or long term stays and available all year round. Really well insulated so comfortable all year.

This cottage is immaculate and private and set in a historic precinct. Blackmore Cottage comes complete with all linen, a breakfast basket plus a bottle of famous Nelson wine. It's a great cottage for great accommodation: for holidays, conferences, events anywhere in Nelson - walking distance to the centre of the city, Trafalgar Park or the Boatshed or The Boathouse or the Nelson Yacht Club or simply a few days away. Perfect for a conference stay if you would rather stay somewhere nicer than a large hotel. 12 minutes flat walk to the centre of the city or 2 minutes drive or you can borrow one of our bikes. If Blackmore Cottage is already booked for the dates you require then try Gibson Cottage. If you need to accommodate more than 6 people or require more than 3 bedrooms then book Gibson Cottage at the same time. Gibson Cottage is also listed on Bookabach.

Excellent coffee shop, dairy, bus stop and cycle way are all less than 1 minute's walk.

Free bikes and bike helmets available, secure bike storage if you wish to bring your own bike and close to the Great Taste Cycle Trail - all on the flat!

  • Very comfortable, tidy place to stay

    Very comfortable, tidy place to stay. Very central to city centre. Loved the history about the place, felt like we were taken back in time. Would definitely recommend staying here and would like to come back to spend more time in Nelson. Didn't actually meet the owners but communication was always very prompt :)

  • Happy to stay again

    Happy to stay again. Would just be aware stairs to upstairs bedroom, very narrow polished wood. Not for anyone slightly in firm or with poor sight.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Blackmoor cottage

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Blackmoor cottage. Great location, great for our family, sunny spots to sit outdoors. In a street with other historic houses all lovingly maintained. Would definitely recommend.

  • House was well-equipped and (above all in July) well-heated and warm

    House was well-equipped and (above all in July) well-heated and warm. Convenient location for dairy, cafes etc, and an easy short drive into the central city.
