Yes there is nothing short of 5 stars on TA, and yes this is much deserved. Cob Quarters is a lovely place in a truly special riverside location. Jenny is wonderful and has a great eye for interior design, and Roland is so enthusiastic about conservation, and, if you ask, is a wealth of knowledge about native wildlife and terrain. Both went out of their way to make sure we had a lovely stay (as did Ben and Sarah, their unbelievably well behaved and charming kids). The watering hole is a highlight, as was the amazing outdoor bath, views from the hilltops (ask Roland for a lift up if it's hot). Fishing with their friend Mike in Marlborough Sounds was also an exceptional day out, up there with the best of our month and a half in NZ.
