Nestled between hills and Nelson city centre, this historic cottage is located in the safe, friendly residential neighbourhood of The Wood. Only ten minutes walk to Nelson city centre, the cottage is a private, peaceful and cosy home away from home. Offering the styling and quality furnishings of a boutique b&b at a fraction of the cost, this self contained cottage is ideal for couples looking for a romantic get-away or central base for exploring the Nelson region.

Retaining the original facade from 1866, the cottage has been renovated to provide a welcoming environment including a heat pump. The bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed with luxurious linens and electric blankets. The living room has a TV, Freeview, free WiFi, DVD and stereo/iPod dock. There is a collection of books, magazines, CDs and DVDs for guests’ enjoyment. The well equipped kitchen includes pantry basics such as tea, coffee, flour, seasonings, olive oil, etc. A sunroom with dining table and sofa overlooks the hills and lush private sunny garden.

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.

    This is a lovely period rental, lovingly restored, neatly maintained and well stocked. As a holiday bach, this property is carefree. And you step back in time to live and learn something about Old Nelson.
