“Beautiful, relaxing, and great wine!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

After touring the North Island on our honeymoon our first stop on the South Island was Walnut block cottages. We spent three relaxing nights here taking in the scenery and drinking the wonderful wine! The hosts were great, encouraging us to wander the vineyards and even let us taste some of their cherries from their cherry trees! Great place to stay, highly recommend!

We loved Walnut Block Cottages. Would definitely be up there for the best place we stayed in the South Island. We were lucky enough to be the only ones staying (note there is only 2 cottages so never going to be crowded). A short drive from most of the main attractions of the Region. The cottage itself is great - super comfy bed, really roomy shower and bathroom with under floor heating and a great walk in robe behind the bed (great to have some room to put your bags etc away out of the room.

If visiting the area would definitely recommend the aviation museum and our favourite vineyards were Brancott Estate (what a beautiful long lunch - go with the Chef's suggestions) and Highfields - excellent service and really nice wine (you must try the Riesling)

We originally had booked 2 nights for our stay.... But it was just so wonderful we extended for one more night.

The accommodation is excellent. A great sized kitchen, table for eating, living room area, an exceptionally comfortable bed and a luxurious bathroom. The views are excellent and Clyde was extremely helpful and gave us some great tips for the local area.

We could not have asked for anything more during our stay and it was perfect. We would both highly recommend Walnut Block Cottage and we are hoping to go back one day.

Upon entering this gorgeous cottage we were blown away. They truly have thought of everything. You simply have to read their website. Everything on it is true to its word. Even in winter the view is breath taking. The small details such as Sheridan towels, beautiful fixtures and amenities and a beautiful comfortable bed. Even the carpet is soft! The breakfast provisions are generous and I loved how they had they're selection of wines available. Would recommend this accommodation to everyone. And yes, we will return. Many times.

We found this place on trip advisor. It was exactly what we were looking for and we look forward to returning in the summer so we can go for walks and enjoy Having a bbq and wine overlooking the vineyard. Lovely bathroom and enjoyed the heated tiles. We bought a bottle of chArdonnay which we thoroughly enjoyed. With small touches I would give this a five.

All reviews rave about the location and that is of course the "unique selling point" of this property. It is absolutely devine.
The cottage and the bathroom are just wonderfully decorated, and the bed is huge and comfortable, although we didn't sleep that well...
The only minor detail for us was breakfast. There is a big choice in yoghurts and cereals, but we missed cheese, ham, and even an egg. But that is just a minor issue.
I would definitely come back and will certainly recommend these cottages.

We loved this place - clean, modern, quality appointments (good bedding and bathroom linens, strong internet connection), incredible attention to detail (heated floor, iPod dock, great selection of continental breakfast items), great natural light and view of vineyard outside, cute deck with outdoor seating. Very private. Terrific value. Lovely hosts. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

Room Tip: There are only two cottages and you can't go wrong with either of them.
