The legendary Red Horse Ridge B&B
Red Horse Ridge Homestead
home stead

This totally modern, purpose built, wind and solar powered home sits on 40 acres, on a ridge over-looking a peaceful, private valley. Make it a tranquil base from which you fill your days with all that Nelson District offers:

For those seeking adventure there are jet-boating, white water rafting, sky-diving, sea or river kayaking, parachuting, rock-climbing, horse riding, or scenic helicopter rides, all within an easy drive.

Abel Tasman NP
A secluded beach in the Abel Tasman NP

For more leisurely activity, discover the nine golf courses in the region, cast your flies in one of our renowned trout fishing rivers, walk some of the beach trails of Abel Tasman National Park, or the mountain forest trails of Nelson Lakes National Park. Or just lie on one of our golden sand beaches, soaking up the sun. On a rainy day, (we DO have them occasionally) there are the WOW Museum of Wearable Art and Antique Cars, or the workshops and galleries of dozens of local artists and craftspeople to visit. Or join the wine trail to try some of the region's crisp whites or smooth reds.

For memorable meals out, Nelson is a bountiful enclave of award winning restaurants and trendy cafes.


Carolyn Suite

Come home, sun-tanned and happy, to your comfortable ensuite room. It features sliding doors opening to a private stone patio where you can sit peacefully with a good book, watch the sun set golden over the peaks of the Western Ranges, or gaze down the valley to the ocean. Only the twitter of skylarks or the occasional bleat of a lamb will interrupt your reverie.


If you like, join us at cocktail hour for a drink and nibbles, or coffee and a chat. We enjoy getting to know our guests.

Red Horse Ridge is 25 minutes from Nelson Airport. Follow State Highway 6 south to Wakefield, then 1/2 kilometer further till you turn left into 88 Valley Road. Drive 3 1/3 ks down 88, and turn right onto the access road at 336. We are up the hill and around the left hand curve at the top to the last house on the right, and well worth the effort.

Your hosts: Bob and Joyce Robinson.
