Ian & Sarah have chosen a wonderful location to offer luxury accomodation. They looked after us exceptionally well, breakfast was great, the room we had - Cowdrey Suite - included everyting one would need except perhaps a full length mirror. The views are amazing and the tranquility cannot be beaten. Highly recommended.

Atholwood is tucked away on a quiet road a few blocks from a lavendar farm 20 minutes outside of Nelson. It backs onto the water (when the tide is in). The accommodations are extremely comfortable, and the hosts are warm, genuine, and inviting (Ian and Sarah). My wife and I stayed for three nights in the apartment immediately adjacent to...

We stayed at Atholwood whilst visiting Abel Tasman, our one regret is we had only booked for the one night. The property is perfectly set in the countryside, with beautiful gardens and nice small pool. The room was well appointed with exceptional attention to detail and a travellers needs. Great bathroom, shower and delightfully comfortable bed. We stayed in the...
