Situated half way between Nelson City and the Abel Tasman National Park, Upper Moutere is an area close to dozens of memorable/relaxing/challenging things to do with beautiful beaches, wineries, restaurants and cafes, fly fishing, talented artisans and so much more. Walking distance from the cottage itself is Western Pleasure Horse Trekking as well as Blackbird Valley Forge where you can, by arrangement, make your own hunting or kitchen knife. Within five to eight minutes away is the Neudorf Sheep Dairy, as well as the picturesque Upper Moutere village with it's general store/cafe, New Zealand's oldest pub and the Old Post Office which now show cases goods made by local artisans.
The cottage has its own kitchen and lounge but you are welcome to enjoy a three course meal, with complimentary glass of wine - BYO extra wine if you like ($50 each) with your hosts in their straw bale house next door. They are passionate about cheese making and milk a house cow and dairy goats. You can get involved with as much or as little of farm life as you like. If you would like a good, hearty farmhouse breakfast you can either cook it yourself (hamper provided) or eat at the main house. Breakfast is ($20.00 each).
This is the perfect place to get stuck into all that this wonderful region has to offer or to simply chill out with a glass of local wine outside in the BBQ area or cozy up to the fire (wood provided). We look forward to your visit.
