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...

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...

When I arrived to my cottage I was quite sure that I had died and come to heaven. Such a beautiful place, the cottage was modern and super clean, breakfast supplies were delicious, BBQ, pear trees just a few steps away, cold Sauvignon Blanc in the fridge... Definitely worth every dollar, I wish I can return some beautiful day!

Beautifully appointed cottage - only 2 here. Right in the middle of vines and fruit trees, and so handy to all of Marlborough's attractions. Lovely people run the cottages - very helpful and friendly. Try their wines! Under the huuuuge walnut tree in your back garden you can find fresh walnuts. Great value, highly recommended.

Well appointed luxury cottages that are a joy to stay in. Its all been said before but the relaxed atmosphere, wonderful rooms and helpful owner make this a great place to stay. Cyde is helpful and his children and dog are fun too. Only 1 point that has been noted before and I know Clyde has his point of view...

We stayed in of of the two Walnut Block cottages for 3 nights.. The cottages are set on the edge of the vineyards - a row of Sav Blanc grapes is about 3 metres from the front deck. They are of modern design and high quality construction, containing most of the facilities that you would expect of luxury cottages. With...

This was one of the most relaxing and unique places we stayed in our 6 week trip. The cottage doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is a travelers dream. Well thought out, comfortable and clean. Incredible views of the vineyards. The host was very friendly and welcoming. We walked the grounds in the morning and picked...

Arriving to this newbuilt cottage towards the afternoon and finding the farm's Sauvignon Blanc well chilled in the fridge and just sitting back and enjoy the view over the vineyard, mountains and the walnut tree is an unforgettable memory. The cottage is spacious, of high standard and extremely well planned. There is even a Weber standing outside ready to use....

Stunning location and views. Private cottage with modern, spotless furnishing/décor. Thoughtful hosts - good wine, beer, breakfast available and you are invited to sample the grapes straight from the vines. Telephone provided for local calls for taxi, booking dinner, and good recommendation from Clyde to walk through to Rockferry for lunch - lovely winery, great food and unusual, gorgeous pinot...

In our 5 weeks in NZ the wi-fi has dire. This has been a focus of several reviews. But Walnut Block delivers everything it promises: delightful accommodation, great setting in a vineyard, Sky TV and wi-fi that is outstanding!
