We have just returned from our third visit to Clayridge and I suppose that is all the recommendation you need really. It is so comfortable, clean, well equipped, has amazing views and your cottage is so peaceful and private and is more than deserving of its 5 star rating. Peter and Marion are the most hospitable and gracious hosts and... More

This place is wonderful in all respects. The rooms are large, beautifully appointed and luxuriously comfortable; the views are incredible, the garden is charming, and the hosts are welcoming, caring, giving, obliging and above all, lovely people. We enjoyed fantastic breakfasts plus many other extras warmly offered by our gracious hosts, Marion & Peter.

We had the suite in the house itself. It was completely private and very spacious - kitchenette, bathroom, dressing area, lounge and huge bedroom. We even had our own patio area to sit out. Everything was spotless and top quality. Peter and Marion were such kind and gentle hosts. Their expert knowledge of the area and helping us to plan... More

What a marvelous place! The stunning 360 degree views from our lovely cottage were only rivaled by the warm welcome and generous hospitality of Marion and Peter.

Peter and Marion are lovely hosts, and Apple Cottage proved a perfect place to start our little holiday. Clayridge is set above Ruby Bay with sweeping 360 degree views of Nelson, the Bay and the Ranges - a truly stunning spot. Apple Cottage is beautifully thought-out and appointed. It really does feel like a little home away from home. Marion... More

Peter and Marion are wonderful warm and friendly hosts. Apple Cottage is a comfortable, private two-bedroom cottage which we had ourselves with a superb view of surrounding bucolic countryside. Terrific breakfast, particularly the lovely little home made cakes.  Great access point to Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle at Kaiteriteri. Two nights was not long enough, would have loved to stay longer,...

4 of us stayed during the 1st week of Nov 2012 for 3 nights in the 2-bedroom cottages. Surrounded by exceptional views all round. One of the best accomodations we stayed in during our 14 day trip in South Island. For the price quoted, this was the best in terms of value for your buck. Marion and Peter were very... More

This was our first stay at Clayridge, and it was absolutely amazing. Surrounded by gorgeous views, Clayridge is a cozy and luxurious place to stay. Its beautiful gardens add to the scenery, and the animals give it lots of character. The hosts Peter and Marion were very helpful with suggestions of nearby activities, all of which our family enjoyed. The... More
