"The property was much better than described on the hostel bookers website. although further from nelson than anticipated (35min) the pleasant peaceful surrounds and facilities more than compensated."

Mount Richmond Estate is a great place to visit any time of the year. As the seasons change so do the views.

Enjoy the spacious 10 acre grounds on a sunny plateau high above Rai Valley. Surrounded by native and exotic forest the peace and tranquility will completely recharge you.

Mount Richmond Estate is adjacent to Mount Richmond Forest Park and near Pelorus Bridge.

Mt Richmond Forest Park stretches 100 km along the rugged backbone of the Mt Richmond Range from St Arnaud all the way to the coast. It forms the backdrop to Nelson city and dominates the skyline from Blenheim and the Wairau Valley. Over 80% of the vast area is covered in dense forest with Manuka, Kanuka, bracken and gorse common around the margins of the park. The high peaks like Mt Richmond (1,700 meters) and the ‘Alpine Route' further south have small alpine grasslands.

Geological interest in the park is high as the main South Island alpine fault runs along the southern boundary. This is the largest active fault line in New Zealand and extends down to South Westland. The Red Hills and Dun Mountain have high levels of magnesium and iron, which gives them a distinctive rust color. Over millions of years they have been moved 600 km north from the identical rocks in the Red Hills of South Westland.

Our licensed cafe/restaurant - Foresters is open 9am - 6pm daily (except Christmas Day), serving delicious chef produced meals, snacks. Also serving soft drinks and fantastic locally roasted coffee. Sit inside in front of the log burner in the cooler months or outside on the deck in the warmer months.
