    Kissing Gate At The Gates Accommodation


    Lodge in Nelson Tasman, Tasman New Zealand



    profiled in TripAdvisors 14 most awesome glamping sites in the world! Come gorgeous glamorous camping with Pearl and Ruby, our lovingly restored 1960s retro caravans and luxury kitchen/bathroom/lounge Settlers Cottage nestled in a glade beside a pond on a 7 acre farmlet. Pearl is the lounge; Ruby is the boudoir. Themed around indulgence and romance, this is a holiday with a difference! Luxuriate in the outdoor bath, explore the organic orchards and fields; admire the whimsical artwork; recline in the Cape Cod chairs; drift in the dinghy on the pond; feed the tame sheep; cruise on our cycles on the Great Taste Trail to local wineries, artisans, beaches. Wander our open spaces, enjoying the birdlife and native trees. Grab a lemon from the organic orchard for your G&T on your decks, or enjoy a delicious grapefruit for breakfast. Kissing Gate truly is glamorous camping - with luxury glass shower (double), a full kitchen (fridge, microwave, cooktop, BBQ) ....and of course beautifully appointed Pearl and Ruby. Pearl is themed in 1960s café/milk-bar style; Ruby exudes Parisian boudoir luxuriance and has a superbly comfortable queen bed. Set in cycling heaven amongst quiet country roads winding through olive groves and vineyards, Kissing Gate has ample room for cycles - you could use our electric-assist or standard bikes to visit the likes of Neudorf or Mahana Estate. Catch the cycle ferry to Rabbit Island. It's an easy ride to Mapua seaside village with its cafes, artisans, craft brewery, live music, and stunning inlet, and use our tour maps for exploring right from the farm gate. Both Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park are an easy 30 minute drive away. Check out Corru Gate (3 bdrm rural chic cottage) or Copper Gate (4 bdrm 2 year old eco-savvy designer home). We have been so excited to create Kissing Gate and we would love to share its quirkiness and luxury with you.
