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.

    Very much enjoyed our stay at the Blackmore Cottage, loved the little touches like the bottle of wine, bread and milk, and the information about the cottage history. We are so used to living in modern open plan homes, it was a great experience to live the old way with all the different rooms, our 4 year old loved sleeping upstairs in the attic! Many thanks again!

  • Not great location by shipping area and huge oil tanks

    Not great location by shipping area and huge oil tanks. busy road to walk to one or two quay eateries . Drive into Nelson. Unkept garden patio. After I called to tell owner we would be off at 9 am Strangely she complained that we vacated property early ?? Surely you can leave when you wish to ?

    Owner/manager responds:

    Guests can arrive and depart when they choose but if they wish to be met we need to know approximately what time they will arrive. This guest gave us a time but turned up 2 hours early with no warning - it took us 30 minutes to get into the cottage. Guests can leave whatever time they like but if they wish us to check they haven't left anything behind we need to know the night before. This guest left an hour early. We have donated items left behind by this guest to local charity shop.
