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.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we had the most incredible stay at St Leonard’s. We have been traveling for 4 months and this has been our favorite accommodation. Would highly recommend for any couple or family! Most importantly, the hosts Marcus and Michele are the kindest people we have ever met and truly make you feel like you are staying with family. Cottage: Our place was charming with the feel of an old farm cottage outfitted with clean modern conveniences (heat, AC, kitchenette, etc.) The kitchen had everything we needed and bed was extremely comfortable. Property: The cottages are nestled in vineyards so they are very private and from the property you always have views of the vines. The property also has a small farm with fruit trees that you are

We stayed here for 2 nights after travelling the North Island and staying in large chain hotels. This little gem was just a breath of fresh air with very comfortable self catering accommodation, very clean, well appointed in a beautiful location and the most wonderful hosts in Michelle and Marcus. A perfect base for exploring Marlborough and the vineyards. They are full of local knowledge and gave advice on sights to see and the fresh eggs provided in their breakfast hamper from their small holding are the best! Highly recommend!

Rather unusual with 5 separate cottages all of different size and accommodation. We stayed in “the dairy” which is the smallest of them, perhaps a little too small, but we had a look at some of the other rooms and all were well presented and maintained the quaint feel that pervades. Breakfast in the fridge included ultra fresh eggs and the rooms provide cooking facilities so fried eggs on toast it was. With a lovely outlook it was breakfast al fresco. Dinner was more complex as it is a 3 km walk to the nearest hostelry - or a taxi ride. Marcus and Michele were great hosts and clearly care about their guests.

In short excellent, some highlights for us were in no particular order - fresh eggs from the hosts own chickens with homemade spreads from their own fruit trees for breakfast outside, despite being Easter our son and I used the pool and spa :), very friendly, helpful and informative hosts, Beautiful green grounds with sheep (that eat lemons!) Alpacas, chickens. Only a few minutes from Blenheim town and vineyards (for lunch) I could go on. Definitely where we will stay when back. We stayed in the Cottage
