We stayed in The Stable Cottage which was the most secluded out of all the cottages and had views over a paddock of lemon trees and sheet. The cottage had been tastefully decorated. The hosts were delightful and very helpful. We took the bikes out for a morning which was great, i like to think we would have kept going... More

We were reluctant to leave our accommodation this morning. We stayed in 'The Cottage' which overlooked a field of vines. It was cosy, comfortable and well-appointed. The food provided for breakfast was gorgeous, especially the eggs which we will now miss. We're fussy about our beds and water pressure, but had no problems with either in the cottage. The hair-dryer... More

Thanks for the very positive review. We were unaware of the problem with the hair dryer, but have now replaced it. Thanks for pointing it out. More

We enjoyed the stay here in the old diary and shearers quarter, in every way you can imagine. The hospitallity of the owners, the complimentary bicycles to bike around the vineyards, laundry, breakfast, wifi, pool and much more! The lodges are fully equipped. We enoyed also their livestock, especially their chickens and the rooster!

Five cottages set around the main house. We had the Shearers Quarters which was spacious and cosy. Set adjacent to a vineyard and with an orange and lemon tree outside the back door. Plenty of charm and very comfortable. The room had a hob, microwave and toaster and was clean and warm. Outside table and benches and a pétanque court.... More

The St Leonard's Vineyard Cottages are surrounded by vines just a km or so outside Blenheim and make a wonderful base for exploring the wine growing country around the town. The accommodation consists of a range of old converted farm buildings most of which are set in splendid isolation from one-another. We stayed for 2 nights in The Stables, which... More

We loved our stay at St Leonards. We stayed in the stables and had a great view of the sheep, deer and lemon grove from our own little garden. The stables were comfortable and spacious and have a lot of charm. The hosts are very welcoming. Love being able to use washing machine and washing line. Loved the fact that... More

I stayed for one night in The Old Dairy - I was on my own on a photography trip - and this was perfect! I didn't want a boxy little room in a motel unit and The Old Dairy was exactly what I was looking for. It's small, but ideal for one or two people on a short stay, and... More

Daphne and Paul Radmall are the owner and management of St Leonards Vineyard Cottages. Property is lovely in every way, this super-chic-classy yet reasonably priced enclave of spacious rooms and cottages surrounded by gorgeous vineyards and a farm. St Leonards Vineyard Cottages are eco-friendly, lushly comfortable and offering amazing surrounding views of Marlborough. We stayed in the comfort of “The... More

We spent a weekend here in April 2013. The weather was wet and the rain didn't stop the whole time we were there, but that didn't matter as the place was so comfy and snug. We were upgraded from the Shearer's Quarters to Anna's Cottage and it was excellent. Daphne was very helpful and very knowledgeable. We would definitely stay... More

We stayed two nights in The Stables cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a rustic, interesting property about 10 minutes drive from town towards the airport. It has about 5 separate former farm buildings converted into various sized studio-style accommodation. There is also a petanque court and swimming pool. The Stables is the last of the buildings on...
