    The cottage is in a quiet setting very convenient to shops and the highway to Abel Tasman and to the south. This was the best equipped bach we have been in in our NZ adventure....modern showers and kitchen...good WiFi....great bird songs from outside.....lots of open space in the house to relax in...as opposed to some 'bachs' that are cramped efficiency units. Would very definitely stay here again.Great for families or couples. And the host's attention to detail...wow!

    sometimes you walk into a property and know you are going to be happy and Hart cottage is one of those properties. Its immaculate, beautifully furnished and modern. it's out of the way down a single track lane but easily accessible to Richmond. We made good use of the bikes, cycling to Nelson, Richmond, Rabbit Island, Brightwater and Wakefield along amazing car free bike tracks. Perfect. Thanks Ruth, we had a great stay.

  • Lovely cottage on the outskirts of town, we loved it

    Lovely cottage on the outskirts of town, we loved it. Very modern inside, was great having en-suites in both rooms. Overall very comfortable and relaxing. Surrounded by fruit trees and even sheep in the paddock next door. Great access to Nelson and Golden Bay with the main roundabout just down the road. The Richmond mall had everything we needed and only 5 minutes in the car.
