TravelPod Member ReviewsVintners Retreat Blenheim
Nice 2 bedroom bungalow with lots of space. It is located a bit out of Blenheim but very handy for a few wineries. It has all the facilities you could need so we ate in mostly. Only down sides would be it is on the main road (SH6) so a bit noisy plus you have to drive if you want to eat out.

Packed our bags and set off back to Nelson on route to Blenheim. We called in Nelson because it has a reputation for having lots of Arts and Crafts.

First we stopped at Boulder Bank on the outskirts of Nelson, managed to photo a few birds but didn't …

After that we made for the Maitai Valley, east of Nelson, to a very nice motor camp on the river. Plenty of room and a nice position. We booked in for two nights, as we wanted to visit some Nelson sights the next day. The next morning was cooler and it rained ...
... lagoon, and a little further along a big mummy seal was posing for photos on the footpath! The path then climbed the cliff to the top and a beautiful viewpoint. It was getting a bit windy and beyond the shelter of the bay the sea was quite choppy. Three hours later we were windswept and windburnt and a bit shaken from the strong gusts blowing us along the cliff edge path! We were also really hungry and still on top ...
... around the pier. By this time of the day the clouds had dispersed and it was sunny and clear. The views of the sound and the surrounding mountains was beautiful.
Our next stop was the Punga Cove Resort where we docked for a very quick beer before heading back to Picton. Once back we cleaned the boat and waited for Paul's wife Christie to pick us up in the courtesy van. I made it back to the hostel just after seven thirty and was out cold an hour later.
