ST LEONARD’S VINEYARD COTTAGES is set on 4.5 acres, with five self-contained boutique cottages positioned around the semi-rural property. The original farm homestead (circa 1886) is home to your hosts - Marcus and Michele - and is an excellent example of early NZ colonial architecture. The house is situated in the hub of this private setting with century-old walnut, gum and elm trees. The charming cottages are themed around the old farm buildings, offering their own unique view of mountains, vines or gardens, and are privately located around the property. They are all fully self-contained and self-catering. Make the most of your idyllic surroundings by exploring the grounds with its picturesque gardens and majestic trees. Near the lemon grove you will find sheep, alpaca and chickens (all prepared to become your new best friend for a handful of food) plus a couple of very shy deer. Pool, Petanque, lawn tennis.

Beautiful place to stay. Stayed in the Stables which is well equipped and comfortable. Enjoyed breakfasts outside in the sun. Feeding the friendly hens, sheep and Alpacas was a highlight. Great hosts who arranged last minute local restaurant and wine tour bookings for us. Lovely relaxing stay after a long journey. Would love to return in the future.

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we had the most incredible stay at St Leonard’s. We have been traveling for 4 months and this has been our favorite accommodation. Would highly recommend for any couple or family! Most importantly, the hosts Marcus and Michele are the kindest people we have ever met and truly make you feel like you are staying with family. Cottage: Our place was charming with the feel of an old farm cottage outfitted with clean modern conveniences (heat, AC, kitchenette, etc.) The kitchen had everything we needed and bed was extremely comfortable. Property: The cottages are nestled in vineyards so they are very private and from the property you always have views of the vines. The property also has a small farm with fruit trees that you are welcome to enjoy and adorable, friendly animals (sheep, alpacas, deer, chickens.) There are also beautiful gardens, a pool, hot tub, tennis court and more. Experience: This was the best way to experience Marlborough! We were provided with eggs from their chickens and jams from their trees (and more) for breakfast, got to wake up with sunrises over vineyards, and eat dinner with a glass of wine on the porch. Wish I could live this life every day!!

We were booked into this very homely B&B by our agents Audley Travel (who by the way were fantastic and knowledgeable about NZ) We loved everything about the place which was a sheep dairy farm in the past and we had the pleasure of staying in the old dairy cottage. A small cute stand alone building next to the main cottage with everything you need for a two day stay. Very comfortable bed, table chairs, fridge and microwave if needed and a nice comfortable ensuite. The owners Marcus & Michelle were perfect hospitable hosts who would make the locals proud.

Marcus and Michelle, what a lovely couple. We stayed in the Old Dairy, it had everything we needed for a 2 night stay, the bed was super comfy and the shower was excellent. We used the BBQ on both nights and had an excellent stay. The hot tub at 9pm watching the stars was especially romantic and enjoyable. Stay in this oasis of joy, it really will refresh you. My highlight was being shown Ned in the distance!!

Stayed at St Leonard’s for two nights during our NZ road trip. We stayed in The Cottage which was great. Marcus and Michele were not there when we arrived but the had left a welcoming note on their door with directions to the cottage. They came by later on to introduce themselves and were extremely friendly and ready to help with any queries. Breakfast provisions were in the fridge (eggs laid by their hens, fresh juice, milk and bread) and the kitchen was well stocked. We were there over valentines weekend so went to the supermarket (5 min drive or 20 min walk) to stock up and make ourselves dinner each night. It was fab to be able to spread out and relax after lots of hotel rooms. There’s a nice pool and hot tub as well. Really enjoyed our stay
