Allan and Margaret were kind enough to have us stay with them for a night at their beautiful rural estate. They made us feel very welcome, were always attentive and made the perfect hosts. Their house is something else and I highly recommend staying there if the opportunity arises! Thanks again Allan and Margaret!

Dear Mai and family, It was our pleasure to have you visit all the way from Tokyo ,Japan. Being able to show you the farm animals and later to entertain you and your family, was enlightening and enjoyable. We hope that we met your expectations, returning to Japan, with great memories of your visit and New Zealand. Wishing you all the best for your future travels, Allan & Margaret at Blackwood House, New Zealand

Nestled within a manicured arboreal estate, the Blackwood House is a private respite hosted by Allan and Margaret. Our sleeping space was spacious and comforting, with soft chairs and an ottoman that faced sweeping views of the palate of late fall trees, fading to silhouettes when the stars to the north began to glow. Breakfast was made to order, served at a grand table with proper place settings. Our stay at Blackwood was a pleasure seldom savored in this age.

Blackwood House is a blissful peaceful country House yet only short journeys to Cambridge Town, Hobbiton and Raglan beach. The standard of accommodation was spacious and beautifully maintained with all the little extras you would expect in a high quality Hotel. The views in all direction is of manicured gardens, trees and green field. A Balm to the soul and "sore eyes" we came away restored. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts with breakfast and the evening Musical Concert a highlight. Contact the hosts direct for expert attention and bookings.

We stayed here for our last two nights in New Zealand and really enjoyed our stay. Allan's and Margaret are excellent hosts and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Allan even lent us his SatNav so that we could find the way to meet our niece and family as we weren't sure of the route. Their house is beautiful, our room was really comfortable and the bathroom was luxurious. We really enjoyed talking to them when we came in after our evening out. The breakfasts were delicious and we really appreciated them getting up early as we had to get to the airport. This was the perfect end to our stay in New Zealand and we were very sorry to leave.
