After giving up city life in Auckland in 2013, we moved with our children to The Pear Orchard. Over the last seven years we have renovated the original 1910s farmhouse, repaired the outbuildings, fencing and infrastructure, cleared and replanted overgrown bush areas and designed and built The Pear Orchard Lodge and the Shearer's Cottage.
We have lived abroad and travelled extensively both within NZ and overseas. And we are very happy to now call Nelson home - the balance of good weather, beautiful beaches, 3 national parks, great food, wine and artists, make it the perfect mix. We are very passionate about our region and are very happy to share our insider tips!
