We had a very nice stay at Brookby cottage. The location was perfect, very close to the airport and not far from town either.
It was very quiet and private, with great views from the veranda down over the valley, and it was a nice way to start the day after preparing a good breakfast in the well stocked kitchen.
As well as meeting the nice hosts operating the property we also had the pleasure of the well behaved and friendly dogs popping down for a visit whenever we called out to them.
We made good use of the log burner on one night, as it was a bit unseasonably cold, and that warmed the cottage well.
We found this a very good base for our weekends exploration and would definitely use again next time in Blenheim.
One of our favourite places we stayed in New Zealand. Very comfortable, well located and equipped, with lovely views over Brancott Estate next door from the sunny terrace. If it gets too hot, there is the deck on the other side to relax on.
The owners told us they lived here themselves for several months while the main house was being built so it was furnished and equipped to a high standard for them.
Very quiet peaceful location but close to all the vineyards and Renwick. We enjoyed the barbecue after a busy day touring the vineyards.
Booking with Mary-Jo was easy and she and Richard were very welcoming and helpful. The dogs were very friendly too!
We have no hesitation in highly recommending this Cottage as a great place to stay when visiting Marlborough!
This is lovely cottage set high above the vineyards. It was a great base for our four day exploration of Marlborough. We enjoyed the opportunity to have some great home-cooked meals with the BBQ and then just sit and savour a glass of wine on the balcony while watching the falcons fly down below. Mary-Jo and Richard were great hosts and we appreciated their suggestions for outings. Our wine tour was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed the green mussel cruise. This is a great location for touring and close to the ferry in Picton.
The cottage is so relaxing and charming. Mary Jo and Richard are such great hosts as well as Brookby, looking for some attention ....
We were sorry to leave, but we will be back!
Great location in the heart of Marlborough wine country within 10 minutes of Renwick. Enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine on the porch overlooking the vineyards. Fully equipped cottage including a Tardis.
Mary Jo & Richard’s cottage is an excellent place to stay near Renwick & Blenheim. Clean, comfortable and well located near many wineries. They’re exceptional hosts as well.
The only issues we encountered were tge WiFi signal was very weak (our mobiles did work from the cottage so not a major issue) and the mattress was extremely soft and wobbly.
So glad we booked a 3 night stay at Brookby Ridge.
Wonderful views and so peaceful
The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable and is a good location for touring the vineyards
And many thanks to Mary Jo and Richard our lovely hosts for such a warm welcome and giving us lots of advice about the area
A real highlight of our stay in Marlborough
