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.

It is now an international success story with work from all over the world. Presented in a way that is so totally in keeping! We loved it! We then went to lunch at one of the numerous craft beer breweries, we listened to a blues singer while we sampled 5 beers and ate wood ...

I hadn't had tea so I went downstairs to the bar and got a meal of fish. after having tea I stayed in the pub for a while and got talking to Peter, he is ...
... as it may
have been camping in Oz! No mossies seemed blissful too, if it wasn't
for the sandflies instead! You can feel these guys rip into your skin
and they enjoy getting into your camper, but perhaps it got too cold
for them as we didn't really have any problems like others we have
spoken too who went in the summer.
Now, the south island, as we had been
told by many, was all about the absolutely stunning scenery and crazy
activities you can ...
