Halfway up the Takaka Hill from Motueka, with distant views to the Abel Tasman coast, these homey cottages have all you need for a comfy stay in the country. The timber interiors and wooden verandas have a rustic appeal while the dishwasher and modern kitchen take the hard work out of your day. There's room here for the kids to run wild, with sheep, goats, and cattle to pet. Your stay can be either fully self-catered, or with breakfast or dinner provided (pre-arranged). It's within easy reach of Golden Bay, Motueka, and the Abel Tasman area, and there could be opportunity to go out on the farm with Dave, depending on what's happening at the time— ask when you arrive.
