Built in 1885 by English gentry and home to one family for three generations, Ugbrooke simply oozes history and is the largest heritage listed privately owned single storey home in NZ. It is unique in Marlborough.
Pressed zinc ceilings and extensive timber panelling in 14 foot stud rooms are just some of the features of this exceptionally beautiful yet unpretentious property. Set on 16 acres in a peaceful, elevated position in the middle of the vineyards of the stunning Awatere Valley, Ugbrooke currently offers you a choice of 5 individually themed bedrooms, two with romantic half tester beds and all with modern ensuite and amenities. Having undergone major refurbishments, Ugbrooke also offers guests a 9 hole chip and putt golf course. Wake up to a breathtaking vista over a sweeping lawn to the vineyards and the Cook Strait. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the stunning dining room or warm conservatory then take a walk around the vines - or simply relax in the intimate and warm ambience of the home. The hosts have friendly dogs and are animal lovers and a guided horse ride around a neighboring vineyard is available for average to experienced riders at a reasonable cost ( one horse available for this purpose).
A continental breakfast for two is included in the tariff and delicious fully licensed home cooked dinners are also available. There is also a cosy bar in the historic Chudleigh Room where guests can enjoy a local wine. Ugbrooke is located just 25 kms south of Blenheim and close to the coast and walking tracks. Your friendly hosts would be delighted to suggest local tours. Please inform your hosts if dinner is required on the first night.
