About Kevin & Glenys
The Mudcastle is a story of destiny that began when Kevin and Glenys met each other on February the 3rd, 1990. Only six weeks after that first meeting, they bought an unwanted triangle of undulating gorse and scrub in the country with a vision to build. Interestingly, the real estate listing read "Rural building site. Just a few kilometres from Moutere Highway, almost 1 acre pleasant undulation contour. Elevated soothing pastoral views. Groundcover mostly fern and some pines, nothing a match couldn't clear." Recently filmed as one of the “World’s Most Extreme Homes”, The Mudcastle is situated in the beautiful rolling countryside of Upper Moutere, Nelson and is created from the clay beneath us. If you are looking for a place to stay that is memorable and inspirational, we invite you to experience one of the three suites we offer. The Peach Suite is a sumptuously decorated Queen suite of adobe construction with private entrance, balcony, romantic outdoor bath surrounded by fairylights and private swimming pool that spills down to a larger pool some distance below. The Gold Turret is also a Queen suite situated in a two storey fairytale turret overlooking the medieval orchard, private and self-contained with opulent furnishings and extravagant bathroom. The Rose Suite is a King suite situated upstairs, luxuriously spacious with double wardrobes, relaxing pastoral views from all windows and internal wooden shutters for additional cosiness.
