Arrived here at night with a group and were delighted to find a historic fireplace and great dinner waiting for us.
Thanks Nigel for looking after us. Loved the history and the feel of this place, about an hour south of Nelson which is also pretty. From here it was only an hour's drive to the Marlborough vineyards so would highly recommend this spot as worth a night to enjoy the cozy feeling of your own historic homestead on the edge of the alps.
