Welcome to Oaks Cottage, a delightful self contained unit located to the rear of our villa. It is set on our 10 acre farmlet in the heart of the beautiful Moutere Valley, where we breed Berkshire pigs from our very friendly pigs Beatrice and Barnaby. We also run a small flock of Suffolk sheep and keep a small brood of free range bantoms and chickens and the turkeys Miranda and Gary, guests are welcome to eggs and garden produce when available.

The stunning area is home to the Moutere Artisans with their boutique wines, olive oil, cider, cheeses, arts and crafts, as well as many fayres and festivals including the Sarau Festival which showcases the areas blackcurrant harvest along with local producers, arts and crafts.

We are ideally placed for exploring the Top of the South Island with access to the 'Great Taste Trail' only minutes away and 3 national parks on our doorstep, Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and the Nelson Lakes and Rainbow ski field, with the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Nelson only half an hour away.

The cottage is a perfect size, bedroom separate and just sufficiently apart from the main home to feel secluded. The farm location is just outside Motueka making all Abel Tasman destinations readily accessible. We loved our stay!

Oaks Cottage is well placed to discover the area around Golden Bay/ Tasman area.

  • 4 of 5

Oaks Cottage is well placed to discover the area around Golden Bay/ Tasman area. It is very comfortable and well kitted out. Quite a few animals to keep you amused, we enjoyed the Berkshire Pigs and there antics. A warm welcome from the two dogs, Patch and Jasper, can be expected each time you return.

We had a wonderful couple of days at Oaks Farm Cottage. Loved the little touches and all the animals. We miss Gary the Turkey - such a character! Highly recommended to anyone seeking some R&R.
