Thackwood Cottage

Welcome to Thackwood cottage

Situated just ten minutes north of Nelson, with ample parking, this spectacular venue can accommodate up to 120 guests.

Your discreet hosts, Murray and Karen Gill, provide tables for refreshments and signing of the register, draped in antique lace and decorated with freshly cut flowers from the garden. A kitchen is available for your caterer's convenience.

Should you require changing or bathroom facilities, you may also hire Thackwood Cottage Boutique Accommodation.* You and your guests can meander through the garden at leisure, and take advantage of the many photo opportunities. Stroll through the Wisteria and Rose arbours to a wooden “love seat”. Take shade under the Cherry avenue, with its beautifully fragrant pink blossom, passing by Lavender and Dahlias as you make your way to the garden’s often photographed “kissing gate”. Continue along the grassy paths, beneath the young Pin Oak trees, under planted with white and blue Hydrangeas as you make your way down to the duck pond, where you can sit in the rowing boat, or venture a little further to an antique farm cart, surrounded by Weeping and Tortured Willows, Calla Lilies and the blossoming Sir Edmund Hilary Rose.

Book our Bride & Groom Package.
