Location

Hira, Nelson, New Zealand

Hira is a small village in a rural area 15- 20 mins drive to the centre of Nelson. The Courtyard is situated in a small valley 2 mins from the main highway that links Nelson to Picton and Blenheim.
There is a small local shop that sells basic items in Hira. On Cable Bay Road there is Cable Bay Adventures who have outdoor activities to suit everyone and a cafe; at Cable Bay there is a lovely café (currently only open for the summer season) by the campground and a safe swimming beach.
There is a small supermarket and takeaway 10 mins drive away at Atawhai.
Nelson has great cafes and restaurants, boutique shops and museums and is the transport hub for 3 national parks.
To the east, the road to Blenheim leads to Havelock and Picton which access the Marlborough Sounds and the Queen Charlotte Track.
