    “Without doubt among the best accommodation we have stayed in – not just in NZ but anywhere in the world.  Evenings on the deck with a glass of Walnut Block Sauvignon Blanc from vines 2-3 metres away will live long in our memories.”

  • From the guest book

    “I’m thrilled and thankful that we found your heavenly cottages here at Walnut Block! From the comfortable bed to the perfectly calibrated shower and putting my feet on warm tiles and my body in a warm towel, sipping on excellent coffee – truly a traveller’s dream. Heavenly, pastoral, relaxing, dreamy and celestial – I shall not forget lying on the deck taking in the Milky Way on a crisp winter night.”
