Ugbrooke Country Estate
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We stayed at the Ugbrooke for one night on our road trip across New Zealand and had a wonderful time. Peter and Alex are fantastic hosts that welcome you into their beautiful historical home. I suggest eating dinner at the manor at least one night. Alex cooked us some scrumptious mussels in a coconut sauce followed by venison and potatoes. The estate was built by William Clifford, to model his home in Devon, England. It is like living in your own manor for the night. I highly recommend a stay at the Ugbrooke when in the Marlborough region.

My wife and I stayed at Ugbrooke for 3 nights and absolutely loved the experience. The estate is beautiful with original architecture tucked into the hills of blenheim. Peter was an amazing host and treated us more like friends rather than customers. The estate is very close to the beautiful coastline and several local vineyards. The meals were great and the company of Peter, Jasper and Jimmy was unforgettable. My wife felt like a princess and did not want to leave!

I must thank my husband for including Ugbrooke in our New Zealand trip. What a beautiful surprise for the both of us. The stunning scenery piqued our interest as we made our way closer to Ugbrooke. When we arrived at beautiful Ugbrooke Estate, we knew then that we were in for a treat. We were warmly greeted by Peter and Alex -- they define the word "hospitality". Alex cooked up a wonderful meal, and we were served on the terrace while we watched dusk descend upon the vineyards. We attended a wine festival the next day, and thankfully Peter provided the transportation. Alex prepared another fabulous meal, and then after nightcap, we crawled into bed for a most restful and restorative sleep. Wow - this was trip to Ugbrooke was one we will never forget. Thanks Peter and Alex!! We hope to return.

My wife and I stayed here for, sadly, only one night. The house is magnificent. Our room had a separate bathroom with shower and separate bath. Loved it. The dinner cooked be Alex was lovely as was the wine. We lazed by the pool, loved the company of the resident and very friendly dogs and we got to see the horses. All up, it's a lovely place with great hosts. We will definitely be staying the again,

A highlight of our trip to New Zealand. After traveling all day and arriving quite late at Ugbrooke, Alex and Peter greeted us, were immediately helpful getting us settled and providing a refreshing glass of an excellent local Sauvignon Blanc. We changed our plans to have dinner there the next night, very glad we did as Alex's cooking is tremendous. Just a wonderful experience with incredible hospitality. Beautiful, peaceful location, stunning vistas, lovely and spacious room.

We held a team day at Ugbrooke Estate and it was superb. Peter and Alex were amazing hosts making the whole day run smoothly! Great place to take your team away from the office - beautiful location and functional facility - and the food provided for morning tea and lunch was delicious!!

This is a review that is long overdue. Me and my husband visited Ugbrooke for 3 nights over last New year's eve as a part of our 2 week drive vacation around the South Islands. We had a lovely time. The estate, about 20 min drive from Blenheim, turned out to be a perfect place for us to unwind after a hectic tour of the south islands. Alex and Peter went out of their way to make us feel welcome and keep us entertained during our stay. The accommodation at Ugbrooke was top notch. Alex and Peter have done a great job in maintaining the 19th century country estate andall the rooms in tip top condition. We still miss our glass(es?) of wine - looking over the well manicured lawns to the wine estates across the road, in the company of Tabby-puss - the resident matriarch cat. A special mention has to go to Alex's berry crumble - simply out of this world. Thanks Alex and Peter for making our stay a memorable one.
