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.

  • What an awesome little cottage! It has everything you need, it is...

    What an awesome little cottage! It has everything you need, it is close to the CBD, it has ample parking outside, it is warm and cosy... what more can you ask for? We were also given a breakfast basket and an excellent bottle of wine (from a local winery) upon arrival. We will definitely be back!

  • Blackmore Cottage is walking distance of Trafalgar street and the town

    Blackmore Cottage is walking distance of Trafalgar street and the town. It is very close to quay street and the cafe's and restaurants there. It is always extremely clean and comfortable. I really enjoy staying there.
