We stayed in The Stable Cottage which was the most secluded out of all the cottages and had views over a paddock of lemon trees and sheet. The cottage had been tastefully decorated. The hosts were delightful and very helpful. We took the bikes out for a morning which was great, i like to think we would have kept going but the weather had other plans. St Leonards is extremely centrally located to explore all the wineries and wonders of Marlborough. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys the countryside, wants to stay in a comfortable and characterful cottage and wants to experience the real NZ.

We were reluctant to leave our accommodation this morning. We stayed in 'The Cottage' which overlooked a field of vines. It was cosy, comfortable and well-appointed.
The food provided for breakfast was gorgeous, especially the eggs which we will now miss.
We're fussy about our beds and water pressure, but had no problems with either in the cottage.
The hair-dryer wasn't wonderful - it seemed to overload the safety switch and slow down all the time, but it wasn't enough of a problem to worry our hosts. I'm sure they would have provided another.
The wi-fi was weak in the cottage, but we knew that prior to arrival.
Overall, a wonderful and restful stay. Thanks Daphne and Paul.

Thanks for the very positive review. We were unaware of the problem with the hair dryer, but have now replaced it. Thanks for pointing it out.

We enjoyed the stay here in the old diary and shearers quarter, in every way you can imagine.
The hospitallity of the owners, the complimentary bicycles to bike around the vineyards, laundry, breakfast, wifi, pool and much more! The lodges are fully equipped. We enoyed also their livestock, especially their chickens and the rooster!

Five cottages set around the main house. We had the Shearers Quarters which was spacious and cosy. Set adjacent to a vineyard and with an orange and lemon tree outside the back door. Plenty of charm and very comfortable. The room had a hob, microwave and toaster and was clean and warm. Outside table and benches and a pétanque court. Bikes are available free to roam the country roads and visit the vineyards. Free laundry facilities. Very relaxing.

The St Leonard's Vineyard Cottages are surrounded by vines just a km or so outside Blenheim and make a wonderful base for exploring the wine growing country around the town. The accommodation consists of a range of old converted farm buildings most of which are set in splendid isolation from one-another. We stayed for 2 nights in The Stables, which was a good size and well appointed with a very comfortable double bed. The heat pump kept it nice and warm and the small kitchen was perfectly good for cooking the wonderful home produced eggs from the chickens roaming around outside. Some of the furnishings and the bathroom suite were not in the first flush of youth, but this went with the overall slightly rustic atmosphere of the cottage. Paul and Daphne are perfect hosts, providing all you could wish for and the bikes, free to borrow for a tour round the wineries, were excellent. There was no wifi Internet but in these surroundings you really appreciate switching off for a few days. All in all, a lovely, slightly quirky place to stay in the most relaxing environment.
