Rustic, Luxe, Boutique Accommodation in the heart of the Nelson region - The Pear Orchard Lodge is the perfect Farmstay.
This room has a super-king bed (or two single beds) and gorgeous views. The room shares bathrooms and other lodge facilities.
Fresh homemade continental breakfast with a few extras is included in the price.
The Pear Orchard sits slightly elevated within an idyllic rural setting in Hope, just outside Richmond, overlooking the Waimea Plains with its orchards, wineries and incredible produce. The farmlet comprises an orchard of approximately 1,200 pear trees, paddocks housing a few cows and lambs and a large pond.
The newly built Pear Orchard Lodge has seven bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen and dining area for shared use, a large covered verandah and a number of bathrooms.
The Lodge is double-glazed and insulated to a high standard, utilises solar water heating technology and an efficient log burner, heating the building with renewable resources grown on the farm. Energy-wise appliances and light bulbs reduce the power consumption even further.
This bedroom is situated upstairs in the lodge. The warm and sunny room has idyllic views across our pond and the Waimea Plains. In the backdrop you can see Tasman Bay and the mountain ranges of the Kahurangi National Park.
Also see our listing for other rooms, including rooms with ensuite bathroom and private balcony, a small queen/family room and the separate sleep out/cabin.
Fresh homemade continental breakfast with a few extras will be served from 8 to 9.30am (or earlier by prior arrangement). Guests are welcome to self-cater at all other times and use the spacious lodge kitchen, dining area (with a log burner) and outdoor barbeque. There is an outdoor bath, blissful after a busy day out exploring! Our hay barn, next to the lodge building doubles as a covered play area with a football table. Laundry services are available. WiFi access is free. Our guests are welcome to explore the farm. Meet our friendly chickens, ducks and geese, enjoy having fantail follow you among the pear trees, spot our local kingfisher, wood pigeons and birds of prey! There are lots of quail about, the odd pheasant and of course our resident paradise ducks on the pond.
Interaction with guests
We live in the farmhouse across the driveway, so we are always available if you need any assistance. We can issue tickets for Wilsons Abel Tasman and Sea Shuttle and can advise on lots of things to do in the area.
Other things to note
Please note that you will share The Pear Orchard Lodge with other guests. This includes the kitchen, BBQ and dining area where guests often get together the big farm table in the evening. Most of our guests love this about the lodge.
Please ask prior to your booking if you would like to stay with children.
We are fairly flexible - no smoking in the lodge, no pets without prior approval.
Generally check in from 2pm and check out by 10am.
As we have a few animals on the farm, we ask that you leave gates as you find them. You are welcome to participate as much or as little as you like with the animals.
