Marlborough Wine Barrel Cabins (Look us up!) Check out our OTHER Barrel !! Live like a hobbit in Marlborough’s only wine barrel cabins. The cabin is comfy and cosy and tucked away in a quiet spot in Marlborough nestled between vineyards and olive groves. Wake up to the birdsong in our peaceful garden setting. Pour a glass of wine and enjoy watching the fantails on your deck or sit down by the stream and watch the sunset. Let your imagination run wild as you pretend you’re in hobbiton.

The space
Our picture perfect wine barrels are a 15 minute drive from Blenheim, only 10 minutes from the airport and have all you need for a comfortable stay. They have a double bed and wardrobe and comfy living area with sofa, dining table, TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a toaster. There is a shared fridge to keep your wine and snacks cool. There are no cooking facilities.

There is a fan and a heater for warmer and cooler nights. The barrel has a private outdoor shower (available from November) but you also have access to an indoor bathroom and shower if you prefer.

Guest access
Our guests have access to the shared modern bathroom (This is shared between both barrels we have listed) It is located at the back of the house and approx 15m away from your cosy wine barrel you are staying in.
If you need something or want some local knowledge please come and let us know but please respect our privacy and don’t go exploring the main house by yourself. Either contact us through knocking on the front door or messaging us through AirBnB. Thank you.

Other things to note
The barrels have a private outdoor shower, this is turned off in colder weather. As it is heated by a gas califont the heating unit must be taken inside when there is a risk of frost.

Location

Hawkesbury, Marlborough, New Zealand

We are mostly surrounded by vineyards with only a few neighbours nearby. Our road is a peaceful place to stay and is a beautiful place to walk or bike in both directions, with nearby streams and a duck pond, there is little traffic and spectacular views to the Richmond Ranges.
We enjoy being surrounded by lots of native birds like Fantails, Bellbirds and Silvereyes , with occasional visits from California Quails and Tui’s, Kingfishers can often be spotted along the power lines.

I’m from Germany but moved to New Zealand in 2014. My partner Kathryn is from Northern Ireland and together we have a wonderful daughter who is 1 year old. We both love the outdoors, we like to go tramping and kayaking in our spare time and if we are not out and about we love DIY. I’m a really keen DIYer and have lots of projects on at the moment eg. converting a 1979 old Zephyr caravan or renovating our beautiful home. Kathryn loves to do lots of crafts like weaving, sewing and painting. Together we also like to enjoy our garden, do some weeding and keep our little veggie patch full of produce. In the past we travelled both for almost a year through New Zealand, so we will be able to give you some great advice on your trip throughout the country. We are passionate about the place we now call home. Other countries we travelled to were: Tibet, Nepal, India, Asia, Indonesia, China, Cook Islands, Tonga, Peru, Bolivia, Fiji and a lot more We love to meet new people and learn about different cultures. We are looking forward to meeting you and hosting your stay.
