Situated 2 km from Richmond and 1.5 km to the Tasman Great Taste Cycle Trail, Hart Cottage offers accommodation of a high standard in a delightful setting. The cottage has 2 bedrooms (Queen x 1 and Twin x 1) each with en suite. An open plan kitchen and spacious lounge both lead out to the garden with outdoor dining areas. The cottage and surrounding fully fenced garden catch all day sun. Ideal for summer BBQ's. Children are welcome and can play safely in this semi rural spot.

This sunny spot is ideal for exploring the Nelson/Tasman district with its beautiful beaches, lakes, mountains, wineries, cafes, skifield and bike trails. Three National Parks are within a 1 hour drive of the cottage.

The neighbouring vineyard, Fossil Ridge, has a charming cafe which is open during the summer months (but unfortunately closed for the 2020/21 season).

Hart Cottage is the perfect hub for those wishing to have a varied biking holiday without having to change accommodation each night. Nelson City is a 14km bike ride. Brightwater and Wakefield to the South are worth a visit for the day as is Rabbit Island, Mapua and Kaiteriteri to the West.

There are a number of walks which can be easily accessed from Hart Cottage, taking you up into the Richmond Hills with amazing views over Tasman Bay. Enjoy the birdlife and fossils along the way. There are also some amazing swimming holes to explore in nearby rivers, great for cooling off during the summer months.

With plenty of award winning cafes, restaurants, wineries and fruit growers locally, this area is a great destination for foodies.

The cottage is equipped with a heat pump, oil heaters, fan heaters in the bathrooms along with heated towel rails and electric blankets.
