Peaceful location in the heart of Nelson Tasman

A peaceful haven with amazing views on an idyllic and slightly elevated farmlet in the heart of Nelson Tasman, the Lodge is the perfect base for families, groups and retreats.

Supermarkets, bakeries and other conveniences are just 5 minutes away in Richmond.

Your hosts Olivia and Timo live in the farmhouse on the property and are happy to provide recommendations and insider tips, to help you plan the perfect stay.

Sleeps up to 20 guests in great comfort

Comfortable and flexible, the Lodge accommodates up to 16 in 7 bedrooms: 6 with super-king (or twin) beds, and 1 family room with a double bed and two bunks above.

Need even more space? Consider renting our cottage as well!

For babies, a portacot and high chair are available on request.

Farmhouse kitchen and dining area

Use the large well-equipped kitchen and farmhouse-style dining area, or crank up the bbq and enjoy the verandah and lawn.

Save time and hassle, by having a supermarket delivery on your check-in day. 

Don’t want to cook? We can provide farm-style breakfast and arrange catering, or even a degustation menu with your own private chef!

Activities on the farm and nearby

Enjoy the good life at the Pear Orchard: climb the hill and enjoy the views, relax in hammocks, explore the orchard, and for the kids, there are farm animals to meet and a tyre swing to enjoy! Find out more about what you can do on the farm.

Nearby, visit stunning beaches, local artists, vineyards and food producers, world class MTB trails, markets, and hiking and kayaking in the Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and Nelson Lakes national parks. Find out more about activities in the region!

Thought about staying for two nights? Make it three or four! There is so much to see and to do in the area that most of our guests wish they had planned for a longer stay when they arrive. Have a look at some popular itinerary modules  to get a feel for the number of nights you should book!
