About your host, Caroline

Caroline's Photo

Outgoing and friendly. I like to bake and make quilts (and do a lot of exercise!). I have two children and we live near Brightwater, Nelson. We have a 16 acre farm with some cattle and a beautiful B&B Cottage. My favourite travel destination is New Zealand and love to share hints and tips of where to go, what to see in and around Nelson and further afield.
