• "A group of ten of us descended upon St Leonard's after we had just completed the 4 day Queen Charlotte Track Walk. As we drove in we realised that our group leader Robyn had go it soooo right. Grass tennis court, walnuts dropping from the trees, warm and welcoming accommodation amongst the wineyards was picture perfect. Michelle and Marcus are lovely hosts and you will enjoy what they have created."


  • "Perfect hospitality. We stayed 3 nights in the cottage as a relaxation break midway through our 2 island trip. It wasn't long enough. Glorious house in the middle of vineyards, orange and lemon trees from which we were encouraged to help ourselves to fruit, delightful hosts, pool, bikes, and more. Just wonderful."


  • "Very comfortable. The accommodation is set just out of Blenheim off a main road, which proved very easy to find! We stayed in the Shearers Cottage, all the rooms are detached set in the garden of 4.5 acres."

  • "Can I move here? Absolutely beautiful and delightful. I've been to NZ previously on a road trip and this was my second road trip (so I've stayed in a lot of NZ hotels and motels) and can say this is the best place I've stayed in in NZ. The owners, Michele and Marcus were absolutely lovely, friendly and really made us feel at home."


  • "A Must!! St. Leonard's provided an outstanding stay while visiting the wine country in Blenheim. The setting is absolutely spectacular and the accommodations fabulous!! The proprietors could not have been more hospitable. They provided fresh eggs from the chickens that live on the land, fresh bread, homemade jams and fresh squeezed orange juice for breakfast. This place is a must if you..."

  • "Pleasant, peaceful stay. Stayed in the Old Dairy which is a cosy little self contained cottage. Michele and Marcus were very welcoming and pleasant to deal with. The surrounds of the property are filled with colourful gardens and friendly farm animals. We enjoyed the delicious free range eggs provided which come from the chickens on the property."


  • "Great night with the kids and an even better morning! Popped into Blenheim for a one night stay with the kids on the school holidays and managed to book The Cottage for one night. It was a late booking, but Michele squeezed us in and made all the beds and filled our fridge with lots of goodies for breakfast."


  • "Excellent stay, beautiful place. We stayed here as part of our honeymoon, and found it to be relaxing and welcoming. We loved the breakfast things supplied by the owners, who really made us feel welcome and couldn't do enough to help make our stay comfortable."


  • "St Leonard's accommodation. Michelle Marcus and Reg the lamb are excellent hosts. Very welcoming and very obliging. Your stay is much more pleasant when your hosts go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable. Beautiful views and the cottage was great. Loved the deer and ewes and lambs."


  • "Great accomodation, good location, lovely people. We stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip around NZ. The owners of the cottages were moving out however they still made us feel very welcome. On arrival we were up graded from the Old Dairy to the Shearers Quarters. The lovely self contained cottage was well equipped and plenty of room to relax."
