Welcome to Watson's Way, a welcoming, traveler-focused Lodge nestled in a secluded garden in Renwick, 10 minutes from Blenheim. Located in the heart of Marlborough's wine area, you're invited to relax in More one of our double en-suite rooms, dorms or camp out in your van or tent. If you're going wine tasting Watson's Way is the best place to stay. Renwick is recognised as the best location to start a tour of some of the region's most prestigious wineries and vineyards. We also offer discounted rates for the wine bike trails. Less
