This is a wonderful grand period house set in a lovely garden. While located less than 15 minutes out of Blenheim, it's actually close to many of NZ's leading vineyards. Reshma, your hostess, is very attentive and knowledgable about the area and delighted in giving us excellent suggestions for us to get the most out of our stay. Bicycles of every size are available free of charge and mostly well developed bike paths and country lanes allow you to bike to the various vineyards for wine tasting and meals. Reshma lives off site and the house comprises various room sizes and facilities for guests. There is a wonderful communal sitting room, but the seating outside on the gorgeous veranda with a view over the garden was my favourite spot in the late afternoon. Breakfast is available in whatever form you wish in the open plan kitchen/dining area with views out over the east facing garden. I tried to be strong but eventually my standard muesli & yoghurt breakfast gave way to the delights of a solid cooked breakfast.…
Beautiful surroundings and atmosphere in wine country. Reshma is a great host and very knowledgeable about the area. She does a delicious breakfast to start off your day too. The setup of furniture and antique ware matches the colonial style cottage. A pleasant stay and we will be back 😊
We love everything about this B&B, the villa, garden, furnitures, interior design, breakfast, cleanness, comfortable bed and pillow, the host’s hospitality... We definitely come back if we have got chance.
Having finished the QCT in Picton, we took a taxi to Anglesea house! This place is amazing! Beautiful, with huge attention to detail, every comfort and just what we needed after our bike ride! Plenty of secure storage of bikes and bike boxes!!! Reshma our host was just delightful! She looked after us very well and cooked us the most fabulous breakfasts! She even helped us with transport to the Omaka Heritage museum! The vineyards were in easy access and her recommendation of Wairau River for lunch was spot on! We have already booked again for April!
we recently had the good fortune of booking this amazing property to use as our base to travel to a family wedding and also visit the amazing local wineries. perfectly situated to access all the area has to offer. clean, tidy , spacious , amazing gardens and breakfasts that set you up perfectly for the day. But the real hidden gem of the property was our host, Reshma was a hosting phenomenon. We left there feeling and knowing we had a friend for life. I cant recommend this property enough.
