About Bronte

Bronte Country Estate has been at the heart of my family for five generations. The estate lies on the headland of Nelson’s historic Bronte Peninsula, overlooking Waimea Estuary and cradled between ocean and mountains under a clear, sun-filled sky.

Halfway between Nelson city and the Abel Tasman National Park, Bronte Country Estate is centrally located to enjoy all of Nelson’s world-renowned attractions. Our coastal orchard and vineyard is typical of the abundant fruits of the Nelson region. What sets Bronte Country Estate (formerly Bronte Lodge) apart is its privacy and tranquillity.

You can’t help but unwind as estuarine tides lap the shore, where wading birds feed in the shallows. The perfume from our extensive rose gardens is simply divine. Stroll through our parkland of established trees, be pampered, sip a local wine, and your serenity is complete. We look forward to sharing our beautiful waterfront sanctuary with you soon!  — Daniel Fraser
