Rooms at Bronte Country Estate

Families who enjoy the high-life will love the heli-pad at Te Koi lodge.

Food and facilities

After a hearty Bronte breakfast your host Daniel can organise lunch and dinnertime trips to nearby Nelson and the best restaurants and coolest cafes in the region. There’s an excellent European and Asian selection but many of the eateries are renowned for unrivalled Kiwi seafood dishes, particularly the salmon and crayfish.

Activities at Bronte Country Estate

Kayaks and catamarans are the transport of choice in these parts, and the best way to encounter the coastline in close quarters. Tighten up your bootstraps or hop on a mountain bike and discover the hiking and biking trails meandering in-land. A helicopter tour of Abel Tasman takes in some of the most outstanding scenery in New Zealand.
