Now with WiFi! Two acres of country charm, 5 minutes from Blenheim town centre on a quiet country lane off State Highway 1. Relax and enjoy the bird song in our park-like setting with spacious lawns, established trees, gardens and feijoa orchard.

Fernlea Cottage is a fully self-contained, self-catering, modern, sunny unit. Open plan lounge/dining/kitchen has expansive views of the garden. Master bedroom has a queen bed, second bedroom (extra large) has twin beds and a set of bunks. Children welcome. Wheelchair friendly.

Barn behind the cottage is used to hand sort fruit during the feijoa harvest, without interfering with the peace and privacy of the cottage. If you visit during April / May you can sample our delicious tree-ripened fruit.

Your hosts, David and Ruth, living on the adjacent property, are on hand if needed to ensure an enjoyable stay. Come for a complete holiday - no need to clean at the end of your stay!

Central to the scenic attractions of Marlborough. Tour our famous vineyards and wineries, sample fine hand-made chocolates at Makana, try home-grown feijoas(in season), visit the Aviation Heritage Museum, discover arts and crafts, cruise the Opawa River, dine at excellent restaurants and sample gourmet seafoods including salmon, mussels, scallops and crayfish. Take a 20 minute drive to Picton, explore this seaside village, cruise the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound, or walk the Queen Charlotte Track. Visit Havelock, 30 minutes away, centre of the green-lipped mussel industry. Or simply enjoy the peace and unwind.

We look forward to welcoming you to "Fernlea". For directions see our map in the photo gallery.

Lovely Cottage and very helpful host, The Cottage had everything we could have wanted and was very comfortable, It was nice to be out of Blenheim a bit as it was so quiet. Hope to come back some time and see a bit more of this wonderful place.

We had a great stay and loved returning to "our" cosy house each day after a thrilling time at the Omaka Airshow. It was incredibly relaxing, your house had everything we could possibly need and the setting with the gorgeous coloured deciduous trees was perfect to look out on. Not to mention the faultless weather - just hope that it follow us back to Auckland today!! Thanks and we hope to be back in the near future.
