This was clearly the best of all places where we stayed during New Zealand trip. The experience of staying on the vineyard was simply incredible. The owners were very welcoming and friendly, advised us on the places to go and even how to get there. Later in the evening we just sat on the porch, enjoying wine and an amazing... More

We had 3 nights in Walnut Block Cottages and it was just perfect. Really well appointed in the vineyards and tastefully decorated with all the amenities we needed. Very close to the vineyards for a day of wine tasting by bicycle as well as kayaking in Queen Charlotte Sound.

The Walnut Block Cottages are spacious, comfortable and well furnished. It was a really fun experience to stay right in the lovely vineyard, just a few feet from the grapevines used to make Walnut Block's wines. We were welcome to walk through the vineyards and to sample a few grapes or other fruits from the trees. The cottages have a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to explore the Marlborough vineyards, before catching the ferry from nearby Picton to Wellington. Both of the high-quality cottages are thoughtfully, stylishly furnished and equipped. They are in a wonderful location, set among the Walnut Block vines, with panoramic views and great sunsets. The air-conditioning was welcome as the weather was quite hot. Breakfast... More

We spent two wonderful nights in the Walnut Block cottages. The cottage is extremely private and is situated just a few feet away from the owners vineyard. The cottage is modern and sleek in its furnishings--- no frumpy clutter here! It is very spacious, has a great king bed, modern bathroom with a large walk-in shower and a super kitchen... More

Lovely location. We drove up to find a clear sign welcoming us in case no one was around...but the host showed up within moments. The cottage was comfortable (heated bathroom floors always a bonus!). It really is right in the vineyard. We were also delighted that there were a couple of bottles of very good wine from the vineyard in... More

Stayed for 2 nights in these lovely cottages...wish it could have been longer. Spent each evening on the little porch drinking wine & eating snacks....couldn't drag ourselves away from the sunset to have dinner out. Went for walks amongst the vines. Comfy bed, adequate breakie supplies ( some fresh fruit & eggs would have been a nice addition ), very... More

This place is just lovely. Not much to look at from the outside, but decadent on the inside! And it was the only place we stayed at in NZ over 16 nights that had extra towels, ie 4 towels for 2 people staying there. Pity they still only had one towel rack, just like everywhere else in NZ. The cottages... More
