My partner and I enjoyed 3 nights here. It is quiet and well positioned with direct views onto the vineyard. In January we enjoyed the freedom to pick cherries straight from the on-property orchard, and wander around the vineyards. The night sky was brilliant, with the Milky Way sparkling beautifully. It's well placed for all the wineries and with easy... More

Stayed there with my family for 3 nights in early Dec 2015. Loved that stay and they are very friendly. Information provided was perfect with good location, nice scenery. Perfect place to relax and chill out and will hope to visit again if there's chance.

Walnut Block Cottages are rated #1 with good reason. Beautifully presented with a kitchenette, outdoor and indoor dining area and great modern bathroom. We had one of their fantastic wines and used the barbecue provided to have dinner on the deck. Romantic and peaceful with stunning scenery.

We stayed at the cottages in July 2015 during winter. It was an amazing place and we couldn’t have asked for better accommodation. The cottage was well thought out with under floor heating in the Bathroom, reverse cycle air conditioning in the living/bedroom, and ample space and storage throughout. The views were second to none, waking up and overlooking a... More

The accommodation was great. Beautifully set overlooking the vineyards with the sun setting in the horizon. We stayed for 2 nights and used the BBQ facilities which was really nice as the accommodation is quite far away from the other wineries. It was really nice to be able to walk through the wineries. The breakfast provisions was a bit of... More

Just stayed for 3 nights at Walnut Block Cottages after our initial stay 5 years ago. The cottages remain in as new condition with every creature comfort imaginable. Obviously the heated bathroom floor being my favorite. The location of the cottages is second to none with magnificent views over the vines to the mountains. The supplied breakfast provisions were a... More

What an amazing location! 2 beautiful, outstandingly equipped and spacious cottages overlook the Walnut Block vineyard - a very picturesque setting. The cottage itself was outstanding with comfortable lounge area, excellent kitchen, large shower room and lovely comfortable bed. The owners were very friendly and helpful in providing tips about what to do in the local area. One of our... More

From the first contact with Clyde & Helen (owners) by email we were excited. They were quick to respond and nothing was a problem. We booked relatively last minute after finding them on the internet by chance. So glad we did! The cottages are beautifully placed to look out over the vineyards, so nicely decorated, the bed was huge and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Walnut Block Cottages during our honeymoon. We had initially booked Cottage #1 for three nights, but we loved our cottage and Blenheim so much that we ended up staying for a fourth night. Clyde, the proprietor, was incredibly friendly and very helpful with regard to places to visit and and local dining options.... More

We were so spoilt to get to stay in one of these fantastic cottages. Oozing quality from the moment you pull in, from the heated floor in the bathroom to the sumptuous bedding, it was the perfect way to end our trip. As unique as it gets, set IN a working vineyard which surrounds a huge walnut tree, you could... More
