One of my all-time favourite stays. We stayed in winter and spent our days visiting local wineries but found ourselves rushing back to enjoy the cottage and the gorgeous vineyard. The hosts were very helpful and Clyde shared his pics for the best local wineries to visit. We followed his suggestions and found each one to be perfect boutique wineries. This place is all about scenery, luxury and absolute privacy.
You are free to roam around the vineyard and cut through to a neighbouring restaurant. We loved walking through the vineyards at sunset and checking out the walnut tree.
The cottage was gorgeous and clean, with continental breakfast provisions and heated bathrooms. The bed is also amazing.
It's perfectly located just outside town but such a short drive from shops and local wineries. I highly recommend it, Walnut Block Cottages were the highlight of our trip and we will be back next time we are in NZ.

i cannot recommend this charming cottage more. Location is idyllic, cottage is modern, clean and well appointed, hosts are discreet and helpful. Fabulous.
Located on the edge of the vineyard the cottage is 5minutes drive from the centre of town but feels completely tranquil.

We stayed 2 nights in one of the 2 cottages recently. What can I say - it was absolutely fantastic! The cottage was furnished superbly, with excellent,quality modern furnishings. It was spacious, and could easily accommodate the 3 of us. But the location is the winner - only 2 cottages, facing the wineyard (which is just a few feet away). The views are to die for - trust me! Sitting on the verandah with a bottle of wine, overlooking the vines, and taking long walks through the vines, these are experiences that we will never forget. Clyde is also extremely helpful and gives good recommendations. And the price (NZD225 per night) is unbelievably low for the cottage and the experience. To me, there is nowhere else in Blenheim that can deliver this experience, and at this great value.

Walnut Block Cottages is a great place!! My wife and I spent our first three nights there and we could not have asked for a more surreal setting! 2 quaint, modern, nicely equipped, and very clean cottages with a spectacular view of prestine vineyards with majestic mountains in the background. after an amazing wedding and 20 hours of air travel, Walnut Block Cottages was a perfect spot to unwind, relax and get our bearings and to start to take in the unbelievable views and scenery that New Zealand would spoil us with for 12 more days! and Clyde and Helen are wonderful people with unsurpassed hospitality. There children are amazing as well (happy belated birthdays to the two girls :-) Thank you so much Clyde and Helen for a wonderful time and we hope to see you again in the future!! (maybe for our 10th or 20th reunion....)

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Walnut Block. A luxurious cottage, secluded, with pleasant views of the owner's vineyard. A very comfortable bed and excellent bathroom, and a generous continental breakfast provided.
The kitchen doesn't have a cooker or many cooking utensils, and although a two plate burner and barbecue were provided, we ate out or had a cold supper at 'home'. The only minor complaint we had was that the outside chairs were really uncomfortable and that there was no shade from the sun when sitting out - but perhaps we should just be grateful that there was some sun!
We wholeheartedly recommend the Walnut Block and hope to return one day.
