Entire Castle Hire at The Mudcastle

The Mudcastle is a hand built clay brick home nestled in the Moutere Valley and Castle Stays are available on an exclusive use basis only.

Perfect for couples seeking complete privacy or for small groups wanting a unique getaway location with all that the Nelson Tasman region has to offer right on the doorstep. Handmade quite literally from the ground up; each brick and floor tile has been crafted using local materials and each leadlight window has been created specifically for the space in which it sits.

Boutique accommodation caters for up to 16 guests in a choice of enchanting suites and cosy rooms. Dine in the farm-style and homely kitchen or in the castle’s dramatic banqueting hall.

Other facilities include off street parking, helicopter access, a comfortable lounge area, library, fully licensed bar and complimentary Wi-Fi. Please note that due to our rural location we have limited cell phone coverage.

The Mudcastle is surrounded by beautiful gardens in which guests are welcome to relax and we are minutes away from several of the region’s renowned artisans, wineries and many other attractions such as Mapua Wharf, The World of WearableArt Museum and the Abel Tasman National Park.
