Watching the sunset across the vineyard with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc was just perfect. The cottages (only two) are really nicely equipped, simple and really comfy. The BBQ on the deck is a lovely way to cook dinner. Both of the cottages look out across the vines, with the hills and mountains in the distance. You could spend hours...

We stayed for 2 nights in Cottage one (there are only two) and it was very nice. The walls facing the vineyard are mostly glass and it feels as if you are alone in the vineyard. The cottage itself was a long open room with kitchen, dining, living and partially separated sleeping areas. The bathroom and luggage/changing areas are separate...

We stayed here for two nights on a long weekend.Such a beautiful place.Set right on the edge of the vineyard it is simple beautiful and serene and you are hardly aware of real live. The Walnut Block wines are good too, so no reason to leave.There is also a barbeque if you want to do some outdoor cooking. It is...

There are two cottages in the most wonderful setting in the middle of the vineyard. It was so relaxing could have definitely stayed longer. The cottages were decorated to a very high contemporary but very comfortable standard. Great luggage space which is a rarity. Location for vineyard tours was perfect and Walnut Block own wine was superb. Would definitely come...

We loved everything about our cottage...it was perfectly set up. The luggage rack/shelf and the bathroom Floor heating were fab touches . The bed was comfy and brekkie was great. We stocked up on cheeses and wine both nights we were there and loved looking at the vines, either from close up or inside once cooler. Perfect stay!!

The two individual detached cottages are identical and sit side by side but are carefully angled to provide privacy - a good piece of design. We stayed in the left hand cottage as you face the vines. The cottage was extremely spacious and well equipped, and had air conditioning (not something we found everywhere in New Zealand B&Bs). The cottage...

We enjoyed our three night stay immensely.I totally disagree with one reviewer that the decor is outdated and the cupboard space partitioned behind the bed is odd.In this area there is also room to lay open two large suitcases and two smaller suitcases on raised platform.This means you have an uncluttered living and bedroom area. Clyde was quick to respond...

The accommodation is well appointed very clean. Done nice touches like heated ensuite floor and a range of basic foods provided. The view across the vine yard is beautiful. The location is handy to all the vineyards in the region.

We chose this place as our home base for a day of wine tasting in the Marlborough region. It was super convenient to the vineyards and had a beautiful view out the window of the cottage. The decor was a bit dated and worn and the makeshift cubbies behind the bed area were a bit odd. Also — wines were...
