Honeywell Hut, Motueka

Honeywell Hut

From $200 p/n
Sleeps up to 5

Honeywell Hut is just 50 minutes from popular Motueka, and just over 1 hour from Nelson. The hut is on route from the Abel Tasman National Park, heading towards the West Coast - which makes it the perfect stop-over accommodation for a road trip around the South Island.

Set on a large and dramatic sheep and beef farm, Honeywell Hut has all the style and feeling of a back country musterer's hut. The one room hut has been loving restored over the years by owners, Fiona and Richard, with a ton of creative, rustic charm. Recycled timber, rescued from the farm has been used in the detail, including old bridge and cattle yard timber. Locally milled macrocarpa timber lines the walls - infusing it with a warm and cosy atmosphere.  A pot belly stove keeps you snug inside and an outdoor wood stove in the outdoor kitchen area heats all your water for showers and baths. 

During the day, explore the farm. Fiona also offers full or half day horse trekking with her team of beautifully trained horses, along with a delicious picnic lunch. If four legs aren't your thing, use your own two. There are heaps of tracks to explore - either by foot or by mountain bike (you're welcome to bring your own). The farm backs on to the beautiful Kahurangi National park and you'll find stunning areas of native bush and hills with spectacular views over the district. Afterwards, take a dip in the cool, fresh swimming hole in the river just adjacent to the hut - and warm up for an evening soak in the steaming hot tub. The night sky is phenomenal at Honeywell Hut. Spot the constellations while soaking away your cares.
