A warm welcome awaits you at "The Peppertree", nestled on south side of historic Riverlands' Cob Cottage, State Highway One on the outskirts of Blenheim.

The Peppertree is an ideal base for touring the internationally renowned Marlborough wine region or simply as a place to rest and unwind.

The Peppertree takes its name from the grove of Pepper Trees (Schinus molle) which line the drive leading to the gracious Edwardian Villa. Built in 1901 from native timbers, the Peppertree is located in 10 acres of farmland in the midst of an extensive country garden and a boutique Vineyard.

Stroll around the lovely garden planted with native trees and soak up the birdsong, fresh air and relaxing atmosphere.

Enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool, perhaps followed by a bottle of Marlborough's world famous Sauvignon Blanc consumed on the wisteria-clad verandah.

William Morris Suite:

The charm of yesteryear is evoked as you enter this large, gracious room with queen size bed and antique furniture, including a magnificent chaise longue, kauri scotch chest and antique oval mirror. A grand kauri fireplace commands attention as does the genuine 'turn of the century' light fitting, original wallpaper and matching frieze.

The room is spacious and airy, attracting all day sun through large windows and double doors. The doors open out on to a private verandah, courtyard and garden, and offer an alternative entrance to your room. A large private bathroom completes the suite. It has both bath and shower and is tastefully furnished in keeping with the theme of the homestead.

Dormer Suite:

Nestled under the dormer roof, up a short flight of stairs, is a charmingly romantic suite of rooms ideal for a honeymoon couple seeking quietness, privacy and seclusion. The highlight of the room is the magnificent white queen size bed, prettily draped in white muslin and bedecked with cushions and pillows. A balcony overlooks the courtyard and attractive garden and the eye is drawn over the trees to the majestic mountains in the distance.

The large adjoining ensuite is light and spacious with tiled walls, and incorporates a spa/bath, shower and a delightful little picture window depicting the Peppertree design, after which the villa was named.

Sunset Suite:

Aptly named for its aspect that allows you to enjoy the sun setting in the west, this pretty room has French doors leading to a private garden. Here, the songs of bellbirds, fantails and other New Zealand native birds greet you in the morning. Climbing roses, pretty hedges, shrubs and blossom trees surround this sanctuary where you may choose to take breakfast alfresco. The garden allows private access to your suite. An attractive ensuite adjoins the Sunset room, providing a shower and special non-slip tiles under foot.

Bell Suite:

If a romantic interlude is on your mind or you need a delightful place to relax and unwind, then curl up in front of the welcoming log fire and enjoy the privacy and peace on offer in the Bell Suite. Cozy and intimate are the words to describe this delightful chamber from which you step down into a private ensuite complete with shower and non-slip tiles.

There are twin or king size bed options and attractive New Zealand prints adorn the walls.

Hall Suite:

The generous proportions of this room reflect the warmth and glow of the morning sun spilling through the windows as you relax in your twin bed. The vista from the large, graciously curtained, windows is framed by the wisteria-clad verandah.

A magnificent ornate wooden fireplace, featuring antique tile surrounds, draws the eye as an imposing focus in the room as does the old fashioned solid wood stand-alone wardrobe complete with full length mirror. Across the hall the attractive private bathroom offers full wheelchair access and facilities for the disabled.
