We just came back from a fabulous stay in NZ - one of our stops was in Blenheim and we stayed 3 nights at the French Fields B&B. What a beautiful spot this was. The Petite Maison Suite was lovely- the balcony overlooked a beautiful field of lavender in bloom and the vegetable gardens were a source of our breakfast...

This beautifully presented property exceeded our expectations. Gracious hosts Ruth & Barry have put a huge amount of effort into delivering a unique and high quality accommodation experience. It is a perfect taste of rural France in New Zealand. The Maison Lavande guest room was sumptuous and perfectly appointed. The location was quiet, the bed beautifully comfortable. The breakfast served...

French Fields epitomises tranquility. A beautiful house set amongst beautiful lavender bushes- this place is perfection. There is so much attention to detail in every respect. The welcome is warm and genuine. Nothing is too much trouble. The room is incredible- from the bath you look put onto rows of perfectly aligned lavender plants. On offer- lavender oils made from...

After reading the great reviews written by others on French Fields in Blenheim, I asked the travel agency who organized our travel for 3 weeks in New Zealand and part of the 4 weeks in Australia to make reservations at this BB for two nights, from 4/12 to 4/14/ 2015. We arrived at about 1 p.m. with my wife sick....

We were dismayed to learn that this had happened to these guests We were away at the time and had reminded the agent before we left that our check- in time was 3pm and to make this clear to these guests. We did not have any contact details for them. Our son arrived before 3pm to welcome them and to...

"What a fabulous property" we thought as we drove to French Fields, a bit of Provence in the Marlborough wine country. We had think twice about where we were upon seeing the lavender fields and french country estate that was to be our future home. And a delight it was...the lodging, the hosts (thank you Ruth, Barry and Ben), the...

We had a very relaxing time over the New Year at Ruth and Barry Struthers property French Fields and felt we found a hidden gem. We stayed in Maison Lavande, looking directly on to the lavender fields where we could hear the bee’s busy hunting for nectar to take back to the hives on the edge of the property. The...

Hands down the highlight of our long weekend in Marlborough, French Fields is a gorgeous Provence-style house nestled in amongst olive trees and lavender rows. It's only 10 minutes from Blenheim town centre, but you wouldn't know it, given that it's situated right in the heart of wine country. The rooms are beautifully styled, the bed AMAZING and the gardens...
