Just a lovely 20 minute drive south of Blenheim in the Awatere Valley, Ugbrooke is renowned as New Zealand's largest privately owned single storey home with 10,000 square feet of floor space, 14' high ceilings and superb timber joinery.
As a guest house with a huge difference, Ugbrooke offers comfortable accommodation in a unique setting.
All rooms - Heritage and Classic - are differently furnished with ensuite, heat pump and are of generous proportions.
Home cooked dinners are provided on prior request and served in the elegant Edwardian dining room or conservatory overlooking the swimming pool and vineyards.
The emphasis is on informality and relaxation . The hosts have two friendly inside dogs as well as horses and chickens that supply superb free range eggs.
