We were travelling around the South Island with our daughter and son in law as part of our 40th. wedding aniversary and did not have any concrete plans of where to go or indeed stay. In fact it was not our intention to stay around Blenheim, Renwick or Picton at all. However on arriving in the area we saw how beautiful it was and decided to stay for three days and set about finding accomadation. Thankfully we found Anglesea House at Renwick. We had the downstairs bedroom with sitting room and modern shower (the youngsters going upstairs). Breakfast was ordered the night before and was excellent being a full cooked if one wanted or continental if required or indeed any combination. Tea and coffee maiking facilities were provided in the hallway for guests at all times. Diana the hostess was very helpful providing information on the area and also booking any trips required. She in fact offered to drive us to local restuarants if we required it. We loved her garden which was in full spring blossom and she also arranged for us to visit a friends garden nearbye that she explained was "an english style garden". This it was although more relevant to an english country house formal garden but stunning.
Diana was in the process of renovating the house and garden which should now be completed making what was a lovely property even better.
We would certainly refcommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Renwick area.
