This place is one of the best kept secrets. Situated on a lovely vineyard in a quiet location. The cottages are modern and comfortable and the hosts are amazing! You just have to stay here if you're in Blenheim.

We stayed in cottage 1. Its very well set out and the vines are right on the doorstep. Really everything that you need and the location is good, between Blenheim and the main wineries. The supplies for the continental breakfast were fine. The free WiFi and Sky TV are all you need for a relaxing stay. Only 2 nights but... More

We stayed for 3 nights end March, beginning April. Weather was perfect, wandering through the vines, pear trees, fig trees, lovely natural gardens, we wound down from working to relax mode very quickly here. The cottages are very private, heated bathroom floor is lovely, the décor is modern, stylish and ultra clean. The Walnut Block wine was very nice too!... More

Located 10 minutes drive from the town of Blenheim, the Walnut block is a real find. The two cottages feel secluded and literally in the middle of the vineyards, affording stunning views, sunsets and starred skies. They also happen to be near the real good restaurant and foodie options in the area. The cottages are spacious, modern, comfortable, well appointed... More

Good stuff: Room to spare. Quality furnishings and fittings, and all the accessories you might want.. Clean and tidy. Excellent layout design. Great bed and I really liked the shower. Owners are available if you need. In the wine area but also pretty close to town if you need a fancy coffee. Other stuff: It ain't cheap but it is... More

When I arrived to my cottage I was quite sure that I had died and come to heaven. Such a beautiful place, the cottage was modern and super clean, breakfast supplies were delicious, BBQ, pear trees just a few steps away, cold Sauvignon Blanc in the fridge... Definitely worth every dollar, I wish I can return some beautiful day!

Beautifully appointed cottage - only 2 here. Right in the middle of vines and fruit trees, and so handy to all of Marlborough's attractions. Lovely people run the cottages - very helpful and friendly. Try their wines! Under the huuuuge walnut tree in your back garden you can find fresh walnuts. Great value, highly recommended.

Well appointed luxury cottages that are a joy to stay in. Its all been said before but the relaxed atmosphere, wonderful rooms and helpful owner make this a great place to stay. Cyde is helpful and his children and dog are fun too. Only 1 point that has been noted before and I know Clyde has his point of view... More

We stayed in of of the two Walnut Block cottages for 3 nights.. The cottages are set on the edge of the vineyards - a row of Sav Blanc grapes is about 3 metres from the front deck. They are of modern design and high quality construction, containing most of the facilities that you would expect of luxury cottages. With... More

This was one of the most relaxing and unique places we stayed in our 6 week trip. The cottage doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is a travelers dream. Well thought out, comfortable and clean. Incredible views of the vineyards. The host was very friendly and welcoming. We walked the grounds in the morning and picked... More
