Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
ST LEONARD’S VINEYARD COTTAGES is set on 4.5 acres, with five self-contained boutique cottages positioned around the semi-rural property. The original farm homestead (circa 1856) is home to your hosts - Marcus and Michele - and is an excellent example of early NZ colonial architecture. The house is situated in the hub of this private setting with century-old walnut, gum and elm trees. The charming cottages are themed around the old farm buildings, offering their own unique view of mountains, vines or gardens, and are privately located around the property. They are all fully self-contained and self-catering. Make the most of your idyllic surroundings by exploring the grounds with its picturesque gardens and majestic trees. Near the lemon grove you will find sheep, alpaca and chickens (all prepared to become your new best friend for a handful of food) plus a couple of very shy deer. Pool, Petanque, lawn tennis and Bicycles

We saw in the New Year here at St Leonard’s and loved every minute of our stay. The Stables cottage was wonderfully private with only the chooks, sheep, deer and alpacas for company. Lunchtimes were spent exploring the wineries (you can even walk to Rockferry in 30 mins). In the

We did not stay at the St. Leonards Vineyard Cottages but were graced by the thoughtfulness and generous nature of the owners during our trip to Marlborough. In short, upon arrival in Marlborough, we were given directions for a 10-15-minute walk from our Lodge to a local winery

Thank you for your kind words and taking your special time to review our property. We loved having you to stay and are so happy you enjoyed your first stop in New Zealand in "The Cottage" at St Leonards. The Orange and Lemons are still fruiting and the hens are laying loads of eggs, we also have a couple of baby chicks born this week and more due on Christmas Day. Hope all is well with you both in Georgia, we would love to have you back to stay any time. Maybe we can go grocery shopping again! All the very best for Xmas and have a happy new year.
