There are two cottages in the most wonderful setting in the middle of the vineyard. It was so relaxing could have definitely stayed longer. The cottages were decorated to a very high contemporary but very comfortable standard. Great luggage space which is a rarity. Location for vineyard tours was perfect and Walnut Block own wine was superb. Would definitely come...

We loved everything about our cottage...it was perfectly set up. The luggage rack/shelf and the bathroom Floor heating were fab touches . The bed was comfy and brekkie was great. We stocked up on cheeses and wine both nights we were there and loved looking at the vines, either from close up or inside once cooler. Perfect stay!!

The two individual detached cottages are identical and sit side by side but are carefully angled to provide privacy - a good piece of design. We stayed in the left hand cottage as you face the vines. The cottage was extremely spacious and well equipped, and had air conditioning (not something we found everywhere in New Zealand B&Bs). The cottage...

We enjoyed our three night stay immensely.I totally disagree with one reviewer that the decor is outdated and the cupboard space partitioned behind the bed is odd.In this area there is also room to lay open two large suitcases and two smaller suitcases on raised platform.This means you have an uncluttered living and bedroom area. Clyde was quick to respond...

The accommodation is well appointed very clean. Done nice touches like heated ensuite floor and a range of basic foods provided. The view across the vine yard is beautiful. The location is handy to all the vineyards in the region.

We chose this place as our home base for a day of wine tasting in the Marlborough region. It was super convenient to the vineyards and had a beautiful view out the window of the cottage. The decor was a bit dated and worn and the makeshift cubbies behind the bed area were a bit odd. Also — wines were...

When we were planning our 2nd trip to NZ, the first thing we did was book Walnut Block cottage for 3 nights. We were so impressed with our stay there in 2015, it was where I wanted to celebrate a special birthday in Nov 2016. The cottages are stylish and spotless, with great views over the vines to the west....

This is a great spot to stay when visiting the Marlborough area. The cottages are very comfortable and beautifully located in the vineyards. You can walk to nearby Rockferry for lunch and the town and other vineyards are a short drive away. The hosts Clyde and Helen are very helpful and next door if you need anything. Highly recommend.

The cottages where clean, very spacious and was well appointed. Awesome views looking over the vineyards. Would definitely recommend for a couples retreat in the Marlborough region. Hosts where very friendly and helpful. All that you can ask for in a holiday.
