What a find! This property is one of a kind. Location, location, location. Sitting high up on a hill at the end of a mile long drive, Harris Hill cottages offer the most amazing views over Nelson and Abel Tasman. The sunsets up here are amazing. I can't really think of enough superlatives to do justice to this place. You...

We stayed at Grandma's Cottage in Harris Hills Cottages for 2 nights and it was the best stay we had in our 2 week New Zealand vacation. We wanted a country cottage experience and this did NOT let us down! The view from the cottage was amazing! So many animals roamed around the cottage and you could see them through...

I could not recommend this place more. We had such a great time. Firstly the guys who run it are incredibly friendly and helpful. Our son loved hanging with, and feeding, the farm animals. The drive up to the cottages was an adventure in itself and the view from our cottage was spectacular once we reached the top of the...

I had a wonderful time on this farm! From the first day on, they make you feel like a family member. Rachel, Sue and the whole family are lovely, very open-minded and hospitable. They made sure that I visit the town and the beach and you can feed all the animals if you like. All the other guests I met...

From the moment we met Rachel to entering our cottage for 4 days over Xmas, things just got better and better. We stayed in Grandmas Cottage, a wow factor from the moment we opened the door. Everything you could possibly need to make your stay as a home from home. Nothing in this cottage is compromised. The view when you...

This is an outstanding set of small on-farm holiday homes very close to Nelson. The views are exactly as the photos and other comments indicate. The resident owners are hugely helpful and fun. This is a very agreeable place.

We've done farmstays in NZ before, but Harris Hill takes the cake. Not only is this a HUGE farm with many many many animals, but the accommodation is beautiful as well, with the self-contained cottages providing for a really comfortable and cozy stay with brilliant sea view to boot. Throw in the friendly, thoughtful host family and the perfect vacation...

The place was like a hidden gem. The drive up the hill was through an ordinary driveway along the street but once we turned in, we knew it was no ordinary place. We drove up and up, round the hill and was soon greeted by a breathtaking sight of the boulder bay down below and the turquoise expanse of the...

We stayed at Harris Hill cottages for two nights in October as part of our honeymoon! We had an amazing time! We were greeted by a sign welcoming us and a lovely map showing us where our cottage was.

“This is a short drive outside of Nelson, up a twisting road, but the view was well worth for winding trek up the hill.”

“This is a very popular place so don't spend time thinking about it--book now or you will miss out. If you leave it to Sue to give you the "best available at time of booking" you can count on her doing just that.”
