Traditional woolshed, converted into a coffee & craft shop

Summer Hours Thursday - Sunday 10-4
Open weekends out of season


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. 

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.
