"At The Gates we discovered everything that we most enjoy about holiday accommodation; peace and privacy in the lovely courtyard and strolling through the property. We loved all the cool creative arty touches as well as the contemporary design of the cottage. Enjoyed the bath and very efficient “pot belly" – really cozy at night! You are at the perfect location in Nelson - so close to beaches, wineries and EVERYTHING! Thanks." G, M and P Wellington.
