Welcome to The Lazy Cow

Hostel owners Ali & Phil… & managers Shane & Anna invite you to Murchison to stay at the The Lazy Cow Backpackers – a small, homely hostel with decks, BBQ’s and a lovely garden to enjoy in the summer and cosy log fires and electric blankets to keep you nice and warm during colder seasons. The Lazy Cow is the perfect place to relax & chill after tramping the Abel Tasman/Nelson Lakes or for being adventurous by going kayaking, white water rafting or jetboat riding along the Buller Gorge.  Tired of eating noodles and pasta all the time?…try one of Ali’s legendary (and very yummy) $15 home-made suppers……..you won’t regret it!!

See you soon @ The Cow!!!

NEW FOR  2013/14 SEASON………..come and dine in our very own restaurant. The Cow Shed is only open 3 nights per week (Thursday, Friday or Saturday) so we strongly advise booking a table ahead of your arrival.  We have a BYO on-license, so bring along your favourite wine or beer to accompany your meal.
