With our spectacular sea and mountain views from private cottages accomodation with 475 acres of farm land & only 10 mins to Nelson city, you would think you were in another world. Our farm is family owned More and family run. We enjoy showing our guests our stunning property and love seeing them enjoy and interact with our super friendly tame up close farm animals. Fantastic property offering fabulous holiday stays suitable for all ages. Huge sea views, native bush walking trails, private setting, working farm with a variety of animals, yet only 10 minutes from the city centre. We love guests who love sea views, want some privacy with quality accomodation, enjoy tranquility and would love to experience a farm stay and yet be close to the city and all its amenities. Our mile long drive is part of the experience of Harris Hill. Stop, take a photo, take a breath and continue on up to the plateau where our accommodation is located. Guest tell us they think they have arrived in Heaven. Less

The view is absolutely amazing! The first thing we did

Hi We are thinking of staying in Maggie's the 3 bedroom. Does it have TV and DVD? Is it modern and clean? Thanks
