This is a great spot to stay when visiting the Marlborough area. The cottages are very comfortable and beautifully located in the vineyards. You can walk to nearby Rockferry for lunch and the town and other vineyards are a short drive away. The hosts Clyde and Helen are very helpful and next door if you need anything. Highly recommend.

This place has everything and if it doesnt, the hosts will do their utmost to make up for it. My partner was very picky about where we stayed and when this was suggested we booked. When we arrived we were blown away by the view of the vineyard, from every room. The spaciousness of the unit and all the finer...

Our stay at Walnut Block cottages in Blenheim was easily the high point of our entire trip to NZ. This place is simply fabulous. The cottage is set in the midst of a Sauvignon Blanc vineyard and faces an old walnut tree. The vineyard landscape is very beautiful. The Sowmans are great hosts and very gracious to explain details regarding...

This place is so perfect. You'll be completely spoilt by the view out across the vines - it's incredible. The peace and quiet really allows you to switch off properly. The cottages are clean, fresh and modern. Breakfast is plentiful and healthy. It's more 'self catering' than 'B&B' but that was absolutely fine by us as we could just relax...

We can't wait to come back to the cottages in summer or again in winter. What an inviting and relaxing space. The bed heavenly, the walk in shower perfect. Loved being able to sample the wine and the include breakfast was a lovely way to start day the day.

We loved our 2 nights at the Walnut Block Cottages. It is a perfect way to spend a couple of nights in wine country and the setting could not be more gorgeous. We loved walking to Rock Ferry for lunch, Herzog Winery for dinner and visiting other wineries during the day. The cottage is quaint yet modern and we hope...

My wife and I had a few nights here and we were blown away. Everything was supplied, even a substantial variety for continental breakfast. We cooked our own dinners as well as venturing to nearby restaurants and vineyards. W e needed to relax and this place delivered. A beautiful place, we hope to one day return.

The cottage owner is friendly and gave us a lot of privacy. There is a lot of attention to details. The bathroom is clean and comes with heater and amenities. Heater for hanging your towels so it's nice and warm during winter. There is a mirror switch which when you turn it on your mirror won't get foggy after a...

We stayed two nights in one of the wonderful cottages. The owners welcomed us when we arrived, gave us good tips on restaurants and activities and pointed us to various fruit trees where we were encouraged to take fruit! The cottages are well decorated and comfortable. It was great to be able to look out over the vineyard every day.
