ST LEONARD’S VINEYARD COTTAGES is set on 4.5 acres, with self-contained boutique cottages positioned around the semi-rural property. The original farm homestead (circa 1886) is home to your hosts - Jonathan & Natashya - 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.

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

We loved our stay here. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and unique. Whilst the woodshed was completely rebuilt on the original woolshed site, they’ve used lots of authentic touches to create a really unique accommodation. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Kids loved the animals (sheep, chooks and deer). Views from the woolshed are stunning. It is peaceful and well located only 2 minutes from a huge supermarket. Ate mandarins and walnuts fresh from the tree.

Thank you for your lovely review, We thorouly enjoyed having you and your family stay in The Woolshed. Pleased it was a perfect choice for a family of five. Great that the kids enjoyed the animals and could have mandarins and walnuts fresh from the trees. Have to agree that supermarket is huge and just 2 mins away from our rural property. Thanks again, regards Michele and Marcus.

I just realized I never wrote a review for St Leonard's, where my wife and I stayed three nights during our honeymoon in NZ. We had a lot of wonderful experiences, from Fiordland to Abel Tasman to Wellington, but I think St Leonard's was the one we remember most fondly. Michele and Marcus were such friendly hosts, and they introduced us to the area and to their livestock warmly. The Cottage, where we stayed, was perfectly set up for cooking a meal in, and had a lovely view of the vineyard (especially at sunset.) It was very private and well cared-for and even had its own little yard and a grill. The Blenheim area is sleepy but the wineries are great and there is also good hiking within a reasonable drive. I couldn't recommend St Leonards highly enough...if you have any

We stayed in 'The Cottage' with continental breakfast supplies (+ eggs) for us to use for our breakfast in the cottage. The cottage was very spacious - bedroom with large bed, bathroom with bath and shower, settees (2) + dining table and chairs + full kitchen. Own veranda with table and chairs - very sunny and warm in the evening and looked out on the Wither Hills Pinot gris grapevines! (Which had been harvested the week before we arrived!) Extensive gardens and pick your own citrus, cherries or whatever else there was in the way of fruit depending on the time of year! Complimentary use of laundry room including washing machine and drier. Only request was to peg out in good weather (rather than use the drier) + a restriction on times of use due to the quest accommodation nearby.

We stayed in the Shearers Quarters for two nights and enjoyed everything. The cottage itself is very nice and included fresh breakfast fixings which we really enjoyed. The highlight though was feeding all the friendly sheep huge lemons. Those sheep really liked lemons😂. Everything was so beautiful on the property and owners were so accommodating. Would definitely recommend if you are staying in the Blenheim area.

We stayed in Sheep Shearers cottage for 3 nights. From the moment we were met by Michelle and Marcus, the owners, until we left, we were made to feel relaxed and at home. The whole property is beautifully cared for with an abundance of fruit trees which you are welcome to pick fruit from. Breakfast was left for us in the kitchenette and included eggs laid by the free range hens. We were encouraged to replenish anything we required whilst we were there and wanted for nothing. There was a barbecue and seating area outside the cottage which we made use of in order to drink some of the wine bought at the cellar doors of the numerous nearby wineries. The whole stay was a most relaxing experience and it was a wonderful way to recharge our batteries.

We stayed in the woodshed for two nights. St Leonard's is just on the outskirts of Blenheim but close to everything you would need. From the moment you turn off the road you enter a little bit of paradise. The track upto the main house is lined with trees and opens onto a picture postcard house and gardens. Michelle and Marcus are delightful people, friendly and helpful and willing to advise on the best things to do and see. We had sought their advice on a wine tour and it turned out to be an excellent afternoon jaunt. The Woolshed is set at the back of the property. It has a large decked entrance with a table/chairs and a gas barbecue. The quirky property opens up to reveal a large living/dining area with a kitchen. Two bedrooms, a double and two singles and a bathroom and

We spent two nights at the beautiful St Leonards Vineyard Cottages and I cannot praise it enough. Our hosts, Marcus and Michele, were so friendly; it was a pleasure to stay at their gorgeous property. We were given such a warm reception and our hosts went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable - Marcus even hung up our washing as we were out all day on an excursion! The grounds are beautiful, with stunning views of the mountains and vineyards. There are chickens, sheep and even deer. Our cottage was furnished beautifully and the attention to detail was very impressive. Our fridge was stocked with fresh bread, juice, jams and yogurt which made for a lovely breakfast and we were even invited to pick fresh oranges and lemons from trees lining the gardens. In terms of
