Almost turned around on the drive up the precarious hill to these cottages. Their cows were perched on a ledge adjacent to the road staring at us as we made our way up. Thought we were lost, but as we reached the top, we realized we'd arrived when we saw a sign welcoming us. This place is amazing! The view over all of Nelson, out to the Tasman sea and peninsula is breathtaking. Our cottage (Grandma's) was very clean, bright and comfortable. There's a nice deck to sit on and have a drink while watching the sunset. Lots of privacy. It's a quick 10 minute drive to downtown Nelson, but definitely need to steel yourself for the drive up and down if you have a height phobia - but if you take a peek, you'll be rewarded with quite a view! Also, because they are perched high on a hill, we experienced some Nor 'wester winds that really shook the cottage. Quite dramatic! Really a one of a kind experience at a very reasonable cost.

My wife and I spent 7 nights here during New Years and all that was left were the brand new micro cabins, which although a bit small for a week, turned out perfect for our stay. They come fully equipped with BBQ, fridge, toaster oven, microwave, tv, stereo all that you need. The property is amazing and the family who run this are delightful, only 10 minute drive into downtown Nelson!

Room Tip: Although the small units are nice, we would definitely book one of the larger rooms next time

I highly recommend Harris Hill cottages. We enjoyed a four night stay in Grandma's cottage over Christmas and had a really relaxing time. The cottages are very private and being on a sheep farm is a really unique experience. The cottage was very well equipped and we enjoyed a BBQ dinner and bottle of NZ wine on the beautiful deck every evening. The location is excellent too, just a ten minute drive to Nelson town. Whist at the cottage we enjoyed a trip to Neson farmers market, which is a great way to stock up on local produce. We also had a wonderful day walk in the Abel Tasman, which is just a ninety minute drive away. Fantastic value and a highlight of our trip!

I was a bit apprehensive about staying on a farm... But absolutely loved it, no noisy animals to wake you up, awesome views over Nelson, fantastic hosts.

Kiwi hospitality is awesome!

Sue Harris and family welcomed us with open arms when we arrived. We were given "Maggies" and the view of the alps and Tasman Sea was breathtaking and awesome. The rooms were very clean and they were very comfortable. We felt like we were at home because of the wonderful accommodation and Sue's hospitality. The farm animals were really cute and we felt really close to the sky at night. I will definitely go back again. Thanks Sue. :)

If you're reading this, then you've looked beyond the Hotels listings, and even the B&Bs to find something rare. Look no further. HH Cottages is a family enterprise, where the family lives on site in one property, and manages several cottages built on their working farm. Our hostess, Rachel, directed us further down the dirt road beyond their home to Sunshine Cottage where fresh flowers were on the table, and fresh cream in the fridge. We spent 3 days with Sunshine as our base, sight-seeing around Nelson, returning to catch the sunset over the bay from the deck, take an evening walk, enjoy a fire in the woodstove. We felt as if we were not just seeing NZ, but IN NZ. We'd go back in a heartbeat.... and stay a month.
