We arrived early morning after an overnight ferry from Wellington to Picton. Tired from our trip this place was like heaven, Peter and Trish were great hosts, the room was ready early and Trish gave us a warm welcome.
Ryland Estate was wonderful and we were glad we had booked in for a few days. The grounds are glorious, the views like a postcard. We borrowed bikes one day for cycling to the wineries. Pete booked us into a restaurant near by (walking distance - the walk was one of the highlights) which did fabulous food and had lovely outdoor area to eat on a sunny evening. There were excellent kitchen and BBQ facilities at the accommodation, everything we needed. Breakfast was provided to prepare yourself and always fresh fruit available (the cherries were immense).
Thank you for a lovely stay.
