It is known that NUT solution has many interesting features and pathologies like being non-singular and having closed timelike curves. It turns out that in higher dimensions horizon topology cannot be spherical but it has instead to be product of 2-spheres so as to retain radial symmetry of spacetime. In this letter we wish to present a new solution of pure Gauss–Bonnet -vacuum equation describing a black hole with NUT charge. It has three interesting cases: (a) black hole with both event and cosmological horizons with singularity being hidden behind the former, (b) a regular spacetime free of both horizon and singularity, and (c) black hole with event horizon without singularity and cosmological horizon. Singularity here is always non-centric at .
