On arrival we were met by the wonderful hosts Peter and Alex. The house is a living history of the surrounding area and has been maintained in its original late 1800’s style (with selective modern additions). Overall a fabulous place to stay. Alex is also a wonderful cook.

Stayed: February 2018, travelled as a couple

My husband and I were looking for true Marlborough Wine Country and we found it at Ugbrooke.
The home is historic and grand. The tour and the restoration is amazing and ongoing.
The rooms are comfortable, but not overdone. They have a refrigerator in the room.
Breakfast is continental style (unless you want more) and is more than you will need to get you through the morning.
The grounds are beautiful, secluded. Look one way and you'll see the ocean and look every other direction and you will see vines all around.
Alex and Peter are, of course, wonderful hosts. Peter gave us an amazing day of wine touring. Alex's cooking is to die for. After our first dinner at Ugbrooke, it was very easy to decide on dinner for the next night -- Ugbrooke. Delicious local cuisine.
Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with view of the back garden.

Really enjoyed the entree of local produce served on the lawn overlooking the vineyards at sunset.
Our hosts were very friendly, informative and helpful.
The house is a beautiful example of 1800's mansions.

Staying at the Ugbrooke Country Estate, one valley south of the Blenheim hustle, was exactly how we wanted to spend the New Year's holiday weekend. If you want to feel like the lord of the manor in the morning with your coffee, this is the place. Alex and Peter cannot do enough to make your stay special. Be sure to have Alex prepare a dinner for you with the fresh local ingredients. The Awatare Valley is a beautiful place to ride their bikes to the isolated beach, sample wines nearby, and visit Barewood Garden.

Alex and Peter make this historic estate a perfect homestay. we spent Christmas with them and had the most wonderful time. Alex is a wonderful cook and made sure we had the most wonderful dinners throughout our stay in New Zealand.
The property is set amidst vineyards and makes for a perfect stay.
Thanks Alex and Peter we surely would come back...
