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...

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.
