We stayed here for a night between some hiking and found it to be the perfect location to rest. The cottage is set in a beautiful vineyard and a short drive or walk from a number of excellent restaurants. The breakfast provided was excellent, and the verandah was the perfect setting to share it, or a glass of wine in... More

Staying at Walnut Block cottage was a perfect end to our 4 day walk in the Marlborough Sounds. Such a delightful setting and the cottage was so comfortable and spacious - great shower!. We loved the walk through the vineyard to a fabulous winery restaurant that Clyde recommended for lunch. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Our stay at Walnut Block Cottages was wonderful. The cottage we stayed in was fitted out beautifully, very comfortable and spacious. The 'dressing room' area was great as it meant we weren't tripping over our luggage in the living area or bedroom. The bathroom was massive, walk in shower and heated floors were fantastic. The views of the vineyard from... More

Excellent couples accommodation, peaceful, quiet, new and modern decor, central to all the best local vineyards. The continental breakfast is an added benefit. Great full length windows that showcase the vineyard, underfloor heating in the bathroom and fabulous bedding all add up to making the cottage cosy and warm. Easy walk through vineyards to a great winery and lunch restaurant.

This place is one of the best kept secrets. Situated on a lovely vineyard in a quiet location. The cottages are modern and comfortable and the hosts are amazing! You just have to stay here if you're in Blenheim.

We stayed in cottage 1. Its very well set out and the vines are right on the doorstep. Really everything that you need and the location is good, between Blenheim and the main wineries. The supplies for the continental breakfast were fine. The free WiFi and Sky TV are all you need for a relaxing stay. Only 2 nights but... More

We stayed for 3 nights end March, beginning April. Weather was perfect, wandering through the vines, pear trees, fig trees, lovely natural gardens, we wound down from working to relax mode very quickly here. The cottages are very private, heated bathroom floor is lovely, the décor is modern, stylish and ultra clean. The Walnut Block wine was very nice too!... More

Located 10 minutes drive from the town of Blenheim, the Walnut block is a real find. The two cottages feel secluded and literally in the middle of the vineyards, affording stunning views, sunsets and starred skies. They also happen to be near the real good restaurant and foodie options in the area. The cottages are spacious, modern, comfortable, well appointed... More

Good stuff: Room to spare. Quality furnishings and fittings, and all the accessories you might want.. Clean and tidy. Excellent layout design. Great bed and I really liked the shower. Owners are available if you need. In the wine area but also pretty close to town if you need a fancy coffee. Other stuff: It ain't cheap but it is... More
