After months of building work, the renovations have finally finished and as of 1st January 2017, our beautiful Courtyard Cottage will be open once again to welcome new friends and make lasting memories. Thank you for your patience, everyone. The Courtyard Cottage is a peaceful, rural, self-contained hideaway, aptly named as it is found nestled in a pavilion, separate to that of your hosts, with a private entrance all of its own so you can make yourselves at home and come and go as you please. Tastefully and elegantly furnished, The Courtyard Cottage boasts a cosy lounge and dining area on the ground floor, along with a country-styled kitchenette, overlooking a sheltered garden filled with roses and lavender. Upstairs, a romantic master bedroom awaits you with a four poster bed, quality brocade bed linen and its own bathroom, stocked with beautiful hand-made soaps and bath toiletries, by Jeymar Soap & Body. Allow yourselves to indulge and be pampered, and awaken each morning to a continental breakfast served in your room at a time of your choosing, to suit your relaxation or travel plans. Alternatively, if preferred, we can bring you a basket of breakfast goodies the night before, to be enjoyed in the morning, at your leisure. During your stay, if the idea of gently cruising around Renwick's gorgeous boutique cellar doors takes your fancy, where you can take your time to delight in seasonal fare and some of the tastiest wine you could ever hope to try, we would love to make it happen for you. Here, you will find yourselves right in the heart of Marlborough's wine region and so our package also includes a complimentary bike tour with Wine Tours by Bike where you will have over a dozen or more cellar doors and restaurants to choose from, all within easy cycling distance away, via flat roads and bike paths and we promise you don't need to be super fit or confident on a bike to reach them. We very much look forward to seeing you. Steve and Jo

The gorgeous loft room - luxury!
We're ready !
Breakfast laid out every morning - ordered as much as we could eat!
Twiggy, this kissing alpaca!
Is this BnB accessible if you don’t have a car? If so, what’s the best way to get there?
Hiya, thank you for your question :-) As rightly said below, if coming on the ferry from Picton, we would recommend getting a shuttle as this will be much cheaper than a taxi, and we can help you get one organised, no problem at all. If coming into the airport, we are only a 5 minute drive from there and could come and collect you :-) If coming into Blenheim either on the train or by bus from Christchurch or Kaikoura, again, we could arrange a shuttle to collect you and bring you out here, if coming from Nelson, get the bus to stop in Renwick, and we could collect you from the bus stop there :-) Hope this helps and we would love to see you. Cheers Steve and Jo - Owners of Hillsfield House
