Tailored Just For You

‘Charming Estate, Beautiful Peninsula’

Bronte Country Estate has been at the heart of the same family for five generations and sits on historic Nelson’s Bronte Peninsula overlooking the beautiful Waimea Estuary at the halfway mark between Nelson City and Abel Tasman National Park. Surrounded by mature gardens, a boutique vineyard and apple orchards you’ll also enjoy stunning views of the sea from the patio of your comfortable suite or standalone villa. Self-catering is easy here with full kitchens and barbecue facilities and a wonderful daily cooked-to-order breakfast to be enjoyed in-room. Leisure facilities include a main outdoor pool and tennis courts, in-room massage, kayaking, rowing and canoeing onsite and complimentary bicycles. There’s plenty to visit locally including Kahurangi Estate, McCashin's Brewery and Greenmeadows Park, all 5-15 miles away. Sailing, skydiving, golf and hiking are some of the activities to be enjoyed in this beautiful peninsula area.
