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 bandb 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 plus a collection of books, magazines, CDs and DVDs. The well equipped kitchen includes pantry basics plus a selection of locally produced goodies including Sublime plunger coffee, Pic's Peanut Butter, Tasman Ridge Olive Oil, dukkah, gourmet mustard, and home made jam and chutney. 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. 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 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.

The name Strupak Cottage (stroo-pack), is the Gaelic word for "tea, scones and conversation" offered to travellers.

  • My husband and I loved our stay at Strupak Cottage

    My husband and I loved our stay at Strupak Cottage. We had a pretty full schedule while we were in Nelson and it was really nice to feel like we had a proper home to go to. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay, the umbrella we found was particularly useful for the days we were there :-) Bed was comfy and the place was cosy. Even though it was too wet to go out to the garden, we enjoyed having our breakfast in the little conservatory. Very convenient location for walking to town.

    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.

    Fantastic location with easy walking to town & many short walks. The house was as described, and the extra touch of delicious pantry items and even a Christmas treat made the house so very welcoming,
