Additional Location Information

The Wood is one of the oldest and most sought after neighbourhoods in Nelson due to its proximity to the city centre which is a ten minute walk away. Despite this, the Wood is quiet and friendly, a residential area with a heart. Originally the area was covered in glasshouses in which Nelson's Italian community would grow and sell tomatoes - in fact you can still buy homegrown veggies outside a house on Grove St! Within 200m of the cottage there are a range of small locally owned shops: The Organic Greengocer, a local dairy (corner shop), a post office and the Sprig and Fern Tavern who serve their own range of beer and local wines and winner of the 2012 Nelson Hospitality Awards. Next door to the Sprig and Fern is a fabulous fish and chip shop - place your order, head to the Sprig and the staff will bring your fish and chips to you in the pub - it doesn't get fresher than that!

Other attractions around the Wood include the walk to the Centre of New Zealand, Founders Heritage Park, Miyazu Japanese Gardens, the Queen's Gardens and Huangshi Chinese Gardens.

Or wander into Nelson City, browse the boutiques and stores along streets lined with trees and colourful hanging baskets before sipping a coffee (if in NZ it has to be a "flat white") outside a cafe and watching the world go by. Right in the centre of the city is the Nelson Provincial Museum, and atop the Church Steps is Nelson Cathedral. And be sure to plan your stay to coincide with a Saturday when Nelson's famous Saturday Market springs to life with a colourful array of handmade goods including clothing, pottery, food, jewellery, flowers, vegetables & fruit.
