Traditional woolshed, converted into a coffee and craft shop

Currently Open Weekends 10 am - 4pm

(Summer Hours Thursday - Sunday 10-4)

Welcome to the Woolshed Canaan. The Woolshed is a craft cafe located on the Takaka Hill in the Nelson/Tasman region. It offers a perfect stop on the long drive over the hill to Golden Bay. We offer a simple food selection consisting of coffee/ teas, real-fruit ice cream, cakes, scones or toasted sandwiches. We can cater for group morning teas or lunches by prior booking. 

While The Woolshed's focus is on woolen products, particularly those made from the wool of our gotland sheep there are also other local handcrafts in store. Outside you can experience farm animals up close, and there is a shaded outdoor seating area.

The Woolshed yarn, knitting kits and felting kits can be also be purchased online or you can make a woolcraft workshop booking.
