Nestled between the vineyards surrounding Blenheim we found a little sliver of heaven. Marcus and Michelle were wonderful hosts and made you stay so peaceful. Despite several cottages on the property we felt like we had complete privacy. We wished we could have stayed longer....More

We stayed for 3 nights and wished we'd had more time! The cottages are so charming. We stayed in the Stables, and I loved waking up with the sheep right out back (they were so cute). There was a small kitchen area which was perfect...More

About
Description
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 1856) is home to your hosts - Marcus ...More 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 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 and Bicycles Less
