Our Farm is an ideal location to experience a lovely country holiday. The cottage is beautiful, peaceful and cosy. There is plenty to see and do and children can play safely in a spacious farm setting. We have 700 lambing ewes, feeding the foster lambs is a big hit with the children – and many adults! The Sherry River is approx. 200 metres from the cottage, perfect for swimming or picnics and with our small dinghy endless hours of summer fun. For the more energetic there is a fantastic new astro turf tennis court, bikes to ride and walks to be enjoyed. There are many pretty and interesting walks around the farm and with the cottage always in sight no worry about getting lost. Fishing in the nearby Wangapeka river is challenging, capture of one of these beauties something to be proud of. Nearby Kahurangi National Park also has lovely walks with an opportunity to experience a pristine beech forest environment. We would be happy to arrange a guide if you would prefer. We have the knowledge to help you get the most from your Nelson experience, whether it is finding a local winery, the best beach or dare-devil activity. We are just a short drive from the township of Tapawera (approx 15mins) easy driving instructions on our webite.

  • Amazing cottage

    Amazing cottage. It was great to have our children explore the farm and surroundings the same way we would have done as children. We loved having our dog join us as she was in her element. So much to do. It was such an amazing holiday that we will treasure for a long time. Though the weather was up and down we still had so much to do. The cottage is wonderfully equipped and perfect for children. We would love to return.

    The cottage is so lovely and homey! The grounds were fantastic and beautiful, it was so relaxing and quiet. There was a stream nearby where Lorraine and Ed allowed us to use their little row boat. The dog had so much fun running around the grounds and our daughter loved bottle feeding the lambs. The perfect little family holiday and a great spot to explore the Tasman region.
