We were recommended to Brancott Ridge by one of our own guests here at Almyra at Kina, Tasman, who had stayed at Brancott prior to staying here. He told us that we would find a very similar set up and ambiance and that Margaret and Peter were the perfect hosts. We found his words to be absolutely true, from the... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was nothing short of amazing. The view are spectacular and the accommodation is amazing, we felt so comfortable and welcome here. Peter and Margaret were so helpful, the breakfasts were devine (nothing beats fresh free range eggs). We loved the way the place was decorated and the cleanliness was exceptional. I would... More

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights, occupying both rooms of this wonderful bnb. Peter and Margaret were excellent hosts, always checking if we were comfortable and if all our needs were attended to. Breakfast was such a spread that we had to tell them to cut down so as not to waste their efforts! Rooms were splendid,... More

How to describe all of the perfection????A home overlooking the vineyards, a vieuw from the south island to wellington across the sea, a fusion of the green of the earth and the blue of the sky. The house is more than tastefully decorated and designed: you are in the upper class. Your hosts are perfect: kind, available,.....Your are staying in... More

If it looks good on the website it's nothing short of exceptional in real life. The panoramic view is as breathtaking as the building design. Each time we thought about sightseeing we decided to go back to the hotel to enjoy the beauty and tranquility. Peter and Margaret are welcoming, helpful and friendly but unobtrusive. The beds (and peace) make... More

We do not think we have stayed in anywhere in our 10 week tour where the decor was fantastic and the house was designed in such a way to maximise every opportunity to see the views. The views from Brancott Ridge are amazing and you can also see some great views from the outdoor pool too. It has only got... More

There is one word to represent this place – EXCEPTIONAL! In the guestbook, my partner described this as ‘A Slice of Heaven’ and this is a very apt description. Everything from the excellent welcome and hospitality from Margaret (owner) through to the classy decor, attention to detail, fabulous breakfasts and the amazing view/ sunsets were first rate. We were lucky... More

My wife and I wanted to explore the wine region of Marlborough for a long weekend and found Brancott Ridge to be the perfect place to do this. Our hosts, Margaret and Peter were very welcoming from the outset and throughout our stay. The residence had stunning views out over the vineyards and was delightfully furnished and finished. Each room... More

Margaret and Peter Foster, our warm and friendly hosts, have created a memorable experience for anyone who enjoys stunning contemporary accomodation nestled within beautiful countryside. Perched above the vinyards of Marlborough, the sheer beauty of Brancott Ridge's panoramic views takes your breath away. From the house it is possible to see the North Island across the sea, and on either... More

Only two guest rooms. Brand new, ultra modern, spectacular views. (On clear days, you can see all the way to the North Island.) Extremely remote and accessible only via a 2+km windy hilly dirt road in relatively poor condition. (Be sure to print out and take with you a copy of the map on the website--you'll need it.) While fairly... More
