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.

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

We spent two nights here and loved it. Stayed in the cottage and it was immaculate. Only a five minute drive from the centre and perfectly placed for all the wineries. Just book it... you’ll love it. The eggs they provide for your breakie are the best.

Beautiful kept property with loads of fruit trees, animals and rolling lawns. We stayed in smallest room - which was small as stated in the blurb on website -but it lead out onto gardens and the old beautiful walnut tree. We eat breakfast and dinner outside and it was lovely. Eggs tastiest that I have had in years and Michelle’s marmalade was delicious- she was so helpful.

We spent 2 nights on our New Zealand holiday and this was amongst our best stop overs. The accomodating has 5 separate units set amidst a vineyard. The owners, Michelle and Marcus are great hosts and go to great lengths to ensure guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Our room was called "The Stable" and they had kindly cleared out the animals.....only kidding! The room was a stable at Some time, but has been converted to a very spacious, tastefully decorated room that has an ensuite bathroom and kitchen/dining area. WiFi is very good.We also had the benefit of looking out onto the orange and lemon trees as well as the lovely animals (sheep, alpacas, deer and chickens). The grounds are delightful and we also had 2 patio areas with a gas bbq. The cottages are a few miles
