We stayed at the cottages in July 2015 during winter. It was an amazing place and we couldn’t have asked for better accommodation. The cottage was well thought out with under floor heating in the Bathroom, reverse cycle air conditioning in the living/bedroom, and ample space and storage throughout. The views were second to none, waking up and overlooking a...

The accommodation was great. Beautifully set overlooking the vineyards with the sun setting in the horizon. We stayed for 2 nights and used the BBQ facilities which was really nice as the accommodation is quite far away from the other wineries. It was really nice to be able to walk through the wineries. The breakfast provisions was a bit of...

Just stayed for 3 nights at Walnut Block Cottages after our initial stay 5 years ago. The cottages remain in as new condition with every creature comfort imaginable. Obviously the heated bathroom floor being my favorite. The location of the cottages is second to none with magnificent views over the vines to the mountains. The supplied breakfast provisions were a...

What an amazing location! 2 beautiful, outstandingly equipped and spacious cottages overlook the Walnut Block vineyard - a very picturesque setting. The cottage itself was outstanding with comfortable lounge area, excellent kitchen, large shower room and lovely comfortable bed. The owners were very friendly and helpful in providing tips about what to do in the local area. One of our...

From the first contact with Clyde & Helen (owners) by email we were excited. They were quick to respond and nothing was a problem. We booked relatively last minute after finding them on the internet by chance. So glad we did! The cottages are beautifully placed to look out over the vineyards, so nicely decorated, the bed was huge and...

My wife and I stayed at the Walnut Block Cottages during our honeymoon. We had initially booked Cottage #1 for three nights, but we loved our cottage and Blenheim so much that we ended up staying for a fourth night. Clyde, the proprietor, was incredibly friendly and very helpful with regard to places to visit and and local dining options....

We were so spoilt to get to stay in one of these fantastic cottages. Oozing quality from the moment you pull in, from the heated floor in the bathroom to the sumptuous bedding, it was the perfect way to end our trip. As unique as it gets, set IN a working vineyard which surrounds a huge walnut tree, you could...

Fabulous breakfast provisions, with fresh bread, yoghurt, fruit, jams and spreads, juice and cereals. Cooking supplies also in cottage, such as oil and salt and pepper. Made very welcome bu owners and...

An amazingly beautiful cottage set right in the vineyards with views of a giant oak tree and the mountains. So comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Delicious Sauvignon Blanc wine with Walnut Block label. I would highly recommend staying here and would stay here again. The owners, Clyde and Helen, are extremely welcoming and have made this place an oasis.

The cottage is exactly like the webpage shows it. Set among grape vines with a great view over the Richmond ranges. In the morning you can lie in bed and watch the sheep nibble on the vine leaves. We visited during a cold snap and found the cottage was cosy and warm and the bed was comfortable and the duvet...
