New Zealand is a world-class activity country renowned for its trout-fishing rivers.

Wild mountains, pristine countryside, cerulean bays, and the golden, postcard beaches of the Abel Tasman National Park so you’re spoilt for choice in terms of fabulous activities and sightseeing.

The excellence here truly owes everything to resident owners Peter and Bobbie Martin, who designed Edenhouse by drawing on Bobbie’s skills and talents honed at the Inchbald School of Design and The English Gardening School in London. They are fully committed to taking care of guests and are ably assisted by a team of twelve who all live in the local valley.

Edenhouse is a seriously fabulous private lodge in the heart of rural Nelson in New Zealand’s South Island, set within 48 acres of private grounds and internationally acclaimed gardens. You have a choice of staying in one of two luxurious suites in the main lodge itself or the beautifully appointed and very private two-bedroom, two-bathroom garden cottage.

The main lodge has a beautiful sitting room, formal dining room, artists’ studio, den and library, together with courtyard areas to relax in. Open log fires are lit in the winter, providing a warm welcome home after a day of walking or horse riding or any number of outdoor activities.  Meals are created from local produce and matched with award-winning local wines. Edenhouse is a consistent winner of travel accolades and receives rave reviews, all thanks to the endeavours of Peter and Bobbie.
