• Atholwood Lodge

    Atholwood is a short drive (20 minutes) outside Nelson, located off the main State Highway heading towards the Abel Tasman National park.

    As you head down the driveway you quickly realise what a find this is, and once you’ve settled in,  we guarantee you’ll enjoy wandering through two acres of landscaped gardens to enjoy the most stunning views of the Tasman Bay.

    The three specious suites in the main house are tastefully decorated, each with a private balcony that leads to the gardens and an outdoor swimming pool with superb views over the Mapoua Estuary.

    The owners, Sarah and Ian hail from East Sussex and have run the lodge fopr twelve years, with an infectious passion for the local area. Their extensive insider knowledge and local contacts for excursions and activities is an added bonus!

    What our travellers love about staying here:

    • Opening the curtains in the morning to the magnificent estuary views
    • Sarah and Ian’s friendly and engaging hosting
    • The quiet and peaceful location
