Travellers' Choice
ST LEONARD’S VINEYARD COTTAGES is set on 4.5 acres, with five self-contained boutique cottages positioned around the semi-rural property. The original farm homestead (circa 1886) is home to your hosts - Marcus and Michele - and is an excellent example of early NZ colonial architecture. The house is situated in the hub of this private setting with century-old walnut, gum and elm trees. The charming cottages are themed around the old farm buildings, offering their own unique view of mountains, vines or gardens, and are privately located around the property. They are all fully self-contained and self-catering. Make the most of your idyllic surroundings by exploring the grounds with its picturesque gardens and majestic trees. Near the lemon grove you will find sheep, alpaca and chickens (all prepared to become your new best friend for a handful of food) plus a couple of very shy deer. Pool, Petanque, lawn tennis.

Stayed at St Leonard’s for two nights during our NZ road trip. We stayed in The Cottage which was great. Marcus and Michele were not there when we arrived but the had left a welcoming note on their door with directions to the cottage. They came by later on to introduce themselves and were extremely friendly and ready to help with any queries. Breakfast provisions were in the fridge (eggs laid by their hens, fresh juice, milk and bread) and the kitchen was well stocked. We were there over valentines weekend so went to the supermarket (5 min drive or 20 min walk) to stock up and make ourselves dinner each night. It was fab to be able to spread out and relax after lots of hotel rooms. There’s a nice pool and hot tub as well. Really enjoyed our stay

Great place to stay, I wish we had more time here. The Cottage is very clean and well appointed with everything needed for a comfortable stay, including a “breakfast pack” which comprised OJ, yoghurts, milk, muesli, eggs, bread etc. Nice to meet the sheep and feed them lemons from the trees, and to see the deer, alpaca and chickens. Excellent hosts, very helpful with advice on wine tours and what to expect on the next stage of our NZ tour. Thanks to Michele and Marcus.

We would like to thank Michelle and Marcus for doing everything possible to make our stay of 2 nights so amazing. Everything about this place is spot on,from the owners,location,things to see etc. We had the pleasure of Michelle and Marcus's company for a few hours on our last night sharing a couple of glasses of wine, a fantastic evening, thank you. We couldn't have asked for anything more from our stay. We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for accommodation in the Marlborough wine region. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Gary and Elinot x

The cottages are situated in a large and beautiful garden surrounded by vineyards. The complex also has yards containing fruit trees and a variety of tame animals - sheep, llamas, deer, and chickens. Our cottage was clean and comfortable and well equipped - we even had some freshly laid eggs from the chickens. The hosts were very friendly, polite and helpful. They achieved that delicate balance of being around and sociable without intruding on our peace and serenity. while there we also visited the Aviation Historical Museum and the Blenheim Museum and would recommend both. All in all a great two night stay which we would recommend and repeat should we return to Blenheim.

The hosts are the rudest people on the earth. The refused to check in azt 8pm with 3 little children just because there were one more 4 child with us. The apartmant was for 5 adults (we were 4 adults, 2 children and 1 infant). However we have alread paid the price. They also refused that 2 adults and one infant to check in. It was 9 pm and we trevalled 600 kms that day. Just imagine. The accomodation is very expensive. There are much more and much better places to stay in this region. Choose something else
