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We enjoyed our three night stay immensely.I totally disagree with one reviewer that the decor is outdated and the cupboard space partitioned behind the bed is odd.In this area there is also room to lay open two large suitcases and two smaller suitcases on raised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...

Lovely cottage, comfortable and clean. Great breakfast provisions. Clyde and Helen lovely, very helpful but also unobtrusive. Helped us out immensely with some paperwork we required from overseas Very quiet spot overlooking vineyards but close to town cente. Will definitely stay here again

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...

When we were planning our 2nd trip to NZ, the first thing we did was book Walnut Block cottage for 3 nights. We were so impressed with our stay there in 2015, it was where I wanted to celebrate a special birthday in Nov 2016. The cottages are stylish and spotless, with great views over the vines to the west....

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...
