Family-owned Bronte Country Estate is an orchard park-turned-luxury hotel situated on the Bronte Peninsula in Nelson on New Zealand’s South Island. The quiet and private accommodation is surrounded by trees producing local varieties of fruit, and overlooks the picturesque Waimea Estuary. Nelson City is 30 minutes’ drive away, as is the Abel Tasman National Park with its stunning beaches and granite cliffs.
All of the stylishly decorated accommodation at Bronte Country Estate has patios with stunning sea and mountain views, plus there are thoughtful touches like fresh flowers and chocolates in the rooms. The suites have living areas, the villas have kitchenettes and the Te Koi Private Villa sleeps up to five and is set in an elevated position at the tip of the peninsula, with a wide deck allowing you to take full advantage of the views in total seclusion.
Away from the privacy of your own suite or villa, the main house has an elegant lounge and a colonial-style verandah where you can relax and enjoy a chilled glass of local wine. The heated pool, tennis court and complimentary bikes are there for when you want to get active, or you can opt for a soothing in-room massage. Further afield, there are vineyard tours, hiking trails, and fishing and kayaking at Abel Tasman.
A gourmet breakfast of home-baked pastries, cereals and fruit is included in your stay at Bronte Country Estate, plus there’s a wide choice of fabulous local restaurants, cafes and wineries nearby – and the estate staff are happy to book your table for you.
