Beautiful, peaceful site, tucked away a couple of miles off the main road from Nelson.
Good clean facilities.
Kitchen facilities are well equipped.
Good WiFi signal.
Historically significant, with interesting beach behind which is a low tide area - good for bird life. Very quite location.

Small, but beautifully located and well equipped. The causeway and beach is just outside the lower gate from the site; and the beach is a great place for a picnic on a summer evening.

Amazing place to stay if you are after some peace and quiet, completely understand why the reviews are so good. The owners were lovely, fairly priced, decent kitchen and showers. It was pretty quiet when we visited, but worth going slightly out of your way to stay there. There is a beautiful walk you can do (quite steep) from right next to the campsite, and you can see a great sunset across the bay. We’d highly recommend both the campsite and the walk!

Stayed here early September, had the whole place to ourselves. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful spot and pure nature. Nice and friendly. Clean. Mini playground. Right next to the sea (Cable Bay). Attention: when it rains the road can be flooded - you might get stuck, no other way out of the Valley!

A lovely small campsite - very quiet midweek in March. Spacious grass sites with our very own Weka!! Great location and good facilities. Friendly owners.
