This was one of the most relaxing and unique places we stayed in our 6 week trip. The cottage doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is a travelers dream. Well thought out, comfortable and clean. Incredible views of the vineyards. The host was very friendly and welcoming. We walked the grounds in the morning and picked...

Arriving to this newbuilt cottage towards the afternoon and finding the farm's Sauvignon Blanc well chilled in the fridge and just sitting back and enjoy the view over the vineyard, mountains and the walnut tree is an unforgettable memory. The cottage is spacious, of high standard and extremely well planned. There is even a Weber standing outside ready to use....

Stunning location and views. Private cottage with modern, spotless furnishing/décor. Thoughtful hosts - good wine, beer, breakfast available and you are invited to sample the grapes straight from the vines. Telephone provided for local calls for taxi, booking dinner, and good recommendation from Clyde to walk through to Rockferry for lunch - lovely winery, great food and unusual, gorgeous pinot...

In our 5 weeks in NZ the wi-fi has dire. This has been a focus of several reviews. But Walnut Block delivers everything it promises: delightful accommodation, great setting in a vineyard, Sky TV and wi-fi that is outstanding!

We also...

The hosts were generous and helpful. The setup was comfortable, well-cared for, yet modern. And we had all the amenities we needed to bbq a fantastic dinner for ourselves, topped off with a cherry reduction picked a few hours earlier in their orchard.

The Walnut Block cottages were easily my favourite accomodation in New Zealand. Being wine-lovers, my husband and I loved sitting on our little deck with a glass of wine surrounded by vines! In fact, we were only booked for one night and decided to extend the stay because of how lovely the cottage was. We even had take-away for dinner...

We ended a two week tour in New Zealand with a stay at Walnut Block Cottages and it was the perfect choice. We love NZ wine, and in particular had looked forward to visiting the Marlborough wine region. Staying at a vineyard in the area was the ideal way to fully experience all this wonderful area has to offer. Walnut...

If you're in for wine tasting in Marlborough, this is the place. The other reviews pretty well explain why this place is amazing. I agree with those who say this was the best place on the South Island that they stayed. The accommodations are impeccable - tasteful decor, really comfortable bed, full kitchen and BBQ, excellent breakfast foods stocked, fantastic...

After touring the North Island on our honeymoon our first stop on the South Island was Walnut block cottages. We spent three relaxing nights here taking in the scenery and drinking the wonderful wine! The hosts were great, encouraging us to wander the vineyards and even let us taste some of their cherries from their cherry trees! Great place to...
