Mary Jo & Richard’s cottage is an excellent place to stay near Renwick & Blenheim. Clean, comfortable and well located near many wineries. They’re exceptional hosts as well.
The only issues we encountered were tge WiFi signal was very weak (our mobiles did work from the cottage so not a major issue) and the mattress was extremely soft and wobbly.
So glad we booked a 3 night stay at Brookby Ridge.
Wonderful views and so peaceful
The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable and is a good location for touring the vineyards
And many thanks to Mary Jo and Richard our lovely hosts for such a warm welcome and giving us lots of advice about the area
A real highlight of our stay in Marlborough
Lovely find staying in this cottage. The hoats are so friendly and their dog is adorable. Views are amazing and cottage is homely and comfortable, and very near huge numbers of vineyards. One of the highlights of our trip!
Although Mary-Jo was not able to meet us, her delightful, genial husband Richard and their two extraordinary canine family members Brookby and Guiness made our stay one of the most memorable in our travels. The lodgings were outstanding for the magnificent views of the valley and the vineyards, the tranquility of the surrounds and the most ideal hosts who assisted us in everything we needed. The facilities were outstanding with not one thing that was wanting. Thank you for our most rewarding stay. We highly recommend this accommodation and look forward to return to your lodgings. Sincere thank you!
Hots were extremely friendly and helpful. Cottage had everything we needed and s very close to Highfield Vineyard/Restaurant
We loved staying here.... location, views, super comfortable bed. VERY cool shower (the Tardis!). Mary Jo greeted us warmly and showed us around. She also gave us lots of good infrmation about 'things to do' in the vicinity. Appreciated the welcome basket with wine and other goodies.
The cottage (especially the kitchen), is very well equipped. Fun to prepare meals and eat there, then retire to the back deck with a glass of wine, watching the sunset...
Thank You for a very relaxing way to finish up our trip in the South Island.
Brookby Ridge was a beautiful location to spend our time in Marlborough. The view of the vineyards and mountains was fantastic. Mary Jo and Richard were excellent hosts. We were greeted with a welcoming basket that included a bottle of wine from Marlborough. Brookby and Guiness reminded us of home. We stayed an extra day and cancelled other reservations as we were so impressed with our accommodations! We will book for ten days next time! See you in two years!
