Bronte Country Estate

Nelson, New Zealand

A delightful small lodge featuring spectacular gardens and an ever changing tidal view of the harbor.

Personal Impression

This is a beautiful small lodge that features the main house with a traditional New Zealand flair and individual villas spread out over 2 acres of flower gardens and walkways for a private and secluded stay in comfortable and spacious accommodations.

Situated 60 minutes for Abel Tasman Park and just 30 minutes from Nelson on the end of the Waimea Estuary this beautiful small property has an excellent location. The estuary has large tidal changes offering constantly changing views to the guests from the big picture windows in the suites.


There are only four suites and the suites are located in separate buildings from the lodge and are very spacious with a verandah patio, views of the water, and all the comforts of a five star property.

Simply wandering the grounds with the profusion of flowers, trees and shrubs is a pure delight. There are resident doves and birds that are always on hand to greet you. Nelson offers a tremendous variety of activities, from exploring the national parks, fishing for brown trout, touring wineries, and the new "wearable art" museum that is like no other museum you have ever seen.


The property offers breakfast to all guests either in the outdoor garden or the formal dining room with breads, fruits and a selection of hot cooked breakfast items. Very close by are many restaurants for dinner and the lodge is happy to make reservations on your behalf.

If you stay at Bronte House you will take the memories of the ever changing ocean and English gardens with you when you leave.
