Retaining the original facade from 1866, the cottage has been renovated to provide a welcoming environment including a heat pump.

The cottage is perfectly situated to explore Nelson’s rich array of boutique shops, cafes, bars and restaurants a pleasant ten minute walk away, including Hopgoods Restaurant - winner of Cuisine's Best Casual Dining award. This is a great base from which to explore the wider region – Mapua, Kaiteri and the Abel Tasman National Park - taking in wineries, galleries, beaches and beautiful countryside.

Closer to home is a dairy, post office, the Organic Greengrocer and the Sprig and Fern tavern (a tiny pub with old-fashioned hospitality, open fires, boutique beers and board games). Take a walk along the beautiful Maitai River, stroll through the Queen's Gardens and Chinese Gardens, visit the Suter Art Gallery or Founders Historic Park and climb to the Centre of New Zealand for magnificent views over Nelson city.

  • Good location and a very cute cottage

    Good location and a very cute cottage. Dangerously close to the local neighbourhood Sprig and Fern tavern. Cottage very clean and great for a couple. Glorious sunsets. 10-15 mins walk to the central city. Highly recommended.
