This is a wonderful place to enjoy whatever you wish. The Nelson region is a food bowl and an amazing beauty spot with a small population. Outdoor excursions of any kind can be accessed from freedom walks to organised tours and trips.

Nelson has a very pleasant climate and a friendly community. Orchards, vineyards, market gardens and all associated outlets for the production of superb food and wine are here.

Be prepared to have your senses enlivened or just enjoy a peaceful break.

Owners on site have a wealth of knowledge to tap into and are happy to give time to answer questions. Your privacy and comfort are paramount. The property is a total garden with fruit and vegetables often available for sharing. This is a keen gardener's delight.

Special conditions: Suitable for non smoking adults only. A single bed is available in the lounge area (generally used as a day bed) for those who prefer separate sleeping arrangements but the ensuite access from the double bedroom is a consideration. The bed can be moved into the bedroom prior to occupancy, if requested. Please make this known when booking. (Both beds are extremely comfortable). An eclectic library is available for holiday reading but books remain with the property please.

  • Lovely cottage in great location for us

    Lovely cottage in great location for us. Very restful garden outlook and good hosts. Would stay here again. Only negative would be that a hob would have been more useful than the portable grill/oven for a bench to cooker.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We appreciate the comment but are within certain restrictions. We have provided an electric fry pan as well as a microwave oven and the bench top cooker which we have found meets most needs for holiday makers. It is difficult to provide for all requirements and the rental reflects that somewhat. Sorry to disappoint.
