With spectacular views stretching across the vineyards of the Wairau Valley, the cottage sits in a peaceful olive grove, alongside our family-owned working vineyard.
The cottage sits alongside a working vineyard, with sweeping views of the vines and vistas of Blenheim, the Wairau Valley and across the Cook Strait to the North Island beyond - all there for you to take in from your private veranda. Harrier Hawks swoop and soar majestically across the valley below, whilst California Quail and pheasants wander quietly through the surrounding trees. A little slice of Paradise!
The open-plan living space is complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, large couches, and a wood-burning fire. With a king-size bed (large double), this is the perfect romantic retreat, where the peace and tranquility of the countryside can be enjoyed uninterrupted. For those guests who love open-air cooking, we have provided a barbeque for you on the deck, overlooking the Wither Hills.
If you're driving up from Christchurch you'll be able to see the newly-repaired SH1 (the main road between Christchurch and Blenheim/Picton) following the earthquake of November 2016. It is a magnificent feat of engineering, with some of the road having to be constructed on the raised-up seabed. The scenery is stunning, and you should also be able to get a glimpse of the seals that inhabit the rocks and seashore around Kaikoura.
