Hello! We are Sharron and Colin, both retired professionals, and we share our home with Millie and Flossie, our two small poodle dogs.
We have lived in Nelson for over forty years and have accumulated a vast knowledge of great places for guests to experience. We can recommend local biking and hiking trails, cultural events, food markets, wine trails, health spas as well as responding to guests' individual enquiries of where to dine, local live music, arts events and what's currently on in Nelson.
We welcome guests to relax in the outdoor garden areas, including visiting and enjoying the quiet private space of Sharron's art studio. Sharron has a lifetime of knowledge and experience as an art teacher and is able to provide studio sessions upon request.
It is our wish to provide guests with a unique, relaxing, and enjoyable stay in our home, as well as to share the local inhabitant knowledge of the pleasures of Nelson should you request.
