About Us

Thackwood Cottage is situated just 14km north of Nelson City, (view map), at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, about 10 minutes drive from the heart of the city. To make the most of the countryside a rental car is recommended as the Nelson region offers visitors a feast of gourmet delights, national parks and outdoor adventures, art and boutique wines – sheer bliss!

If you like to stay closer to home, within 10 minutes of the cottage you can enjoy sea kayaking the spectacular coastline of Cable Bay, horse trekking, tennis, Happy Valley Adventures or hike along the Cable Bay walkway and beach.

We look forward to hosting you…
