We stayed here in one of the Manor villas overlooking the vines. The accommodation was excellent and the facilities such as swimming pool, tennis courts and petanque were unexpected and welcome. The managers of the property were both extremely helpful in terms of restaurant recommendations and bike hire. The property is in the middle of the Marlborough wine area so we hired bikes for a day (delivered to the property) and did some wine tasting - thoroughly recommended. There are only 2 or 3 restaurants open locally in the evenings but the standard of food is very good (Gibbs was good value). However, the facilities in the villa are so good it is quite nice to have a night in and cook yourself.
You can have a continental breakfast delivered to your villa but it is probably better to go to the local supermarket and stock up yourself.
Overall we had a fantastic time and would definitely return here next time.
