Stay at your own castle! The Mudcastle is a hand-built clay brick home nestled in the Moutere Valley near Nelson and self-catering Castle Stays are available on an exclusive use basis only.
Perfect for couples seeking complete privacy or for small groups wanting a unique getaway location with all that the Nelson-Tasman region has to offer right on the doorstep. Handmade quite literally from the ground up; each brick and floor tile has been crafted using local materials and each leadlight window has been created specifically for the space in which it sits.
Boutique accommodation caters for up to 16 guests in a choice of enchanting suites and cosy rooms. There are three suites with ensuite bathrooms with large, deep baths and separate showers. Additionally, the castle features five bedrooms all sharing three additional bathrooms comprising 3 toilets, 3 showers and 1 bath.
Other facilities include a comfortable lounge area, library and complimentary Wi-Fi. The Mudcastle is surrounded by beautiful gardens which guests are welcome to relax in, minutes away from some of the region’s iconic wineries such as Neudorf Estate and a short drive from many other attractions such as Mapua Wharf and the Abel Tasman National Park.
The owners live in separate quarters on the property. They will be there to welcome you and answer any questions you may have while your group’s privacy is maintained. Your group will be the only guests staying at the Mudcastle and you will have exclusive use of the entire Castle.
Ample free parking is provided in front of the castle. As the Mudcastle is located in the countryside, we recommend you have your own transport to get around and explore everything the Nelson-Tasman region has to offer.
