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 wife and I have just stayed at St Leonards Vineyard Cottages over the long weekend and wow! This really is an amazing part of the country, made all the better by a couple of wonderful hosts. Our cottage was easily big enough for the two of us and was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a couple. We used the bbq for two of the three nights and it was no drama at all. There is a Park and Save a two minute drive away just down the road is a real bonus to pick up some supplies. The provisions provided for breakfast each day were very generous, and in particular the eggs were awesome for breakfast each morning. Being able to eat outside at the table watching the sun come up over the Wither Hills vines was such a great way to start the day. The sheep, lambs,

Hubby and I took a South Island roadie recently and voted Marcus and Michelle's The Stables the best accommodation of our trip. Michelle greeted us with a smile and made us feel so very welcome and Marcus made a couple of appearances also. The property is beautifully maintained and we stayed in the Stables. Our disappointment at missing out on being able to book the Shearing Shed was overcome by being in the best cottage for looking out over the Wither Hills and the animals and seeing the Rooster "sitting on top" of the chickens on many occasions, one of the deer roaring around at dusk, and the cute little lambs and their Mums. The Stables was spotless and cosy and we could have just stayed there for good. Every little detail had been thought of and we could tell Michelle and

Beautiful place to stay. Stayed in the Stables which is well equipped and comfortable. Enjoyed breakfasts outside in the sun. Feeding the friendly hens, sheep and Alpacas was a highlight. Great hosts who arranged last minute local restaurant and wine tour bookings for us. Lovely relaxing stay after a long journey. Would love to return in the future.

We were booked into this very homely B&B by our agents Audley Travel (who by the way were fantastic and knowledgeable about NZ) We loved everything about the place which was a sheep dairy farm in the past and we had the pleasure of staying in the old dairy cottage. A small cute stand alone building next to the main cottage with everything you need for a two day stay. Very comfortable bed, table chairs, fridge and microwave if needed and a nice comfortable ensuite. The owners Marcus & Michelle were perfect hospitable hosts who would make the locals proud.

Marcus and Michelle, what a lovely couple. We stayed in the Old Dairy, it had everything we needed for a 2 night stay, the bed was super comfy and the shower was excellent. We used the BBQ on both nights and had an excellent stay. The hot tub at 9pm watching the stars was especially romantic and enjoyable. Stay in this oasis of joy, it really will refresh you. My highlight was being shown Ned in the distance!!
