McCormick House Marlborough, New Zealand

“Charming boutique B&B just outside Picton. Individually designed rooms feature luxury linens & handcrafted furniture. Lush half acre gardens. Ideal for a peaceful break, but equally a great base for enjoying all the activities on offer in the Marlborough Sounds.”

“McCormick House is a delightful boutique B&B run by friendly hosts offering a comfortable stay in half an acre of native gardens with a herb and veg patch, and chickens roaming around. The historic villa sits on the outskirts of Picton and retains original Arts and Craft era features such as wood panelled doors and a staircase. Suites are uniquely furnished, bright, airy and comfortable, with 100% Egyptian cotton linen, locally made toiletries and handcrafted furniture (made by host Carl who is a skilled craftsman – look out for the heart rimu dining room table he lovingly restored). Additional quirky features add charm to each room, like the pedestal mounted clawfoot bath in The Captain’s Room or the blue lighting in the Boatshed Room. The couple are committed to sustainable practices including recycling, solar water heating, composting and a native plant re-vegetation programme. It’s a 20 minute walk into the centre of Picton so a car is recommended, but otherwise it’s a pleasant stroll into town or the hosts offer complimentary drop offs and pick ups. A hearty homemade breakfast in the morning will you set you up for some scenic walking along the Queen Charlotte Track or dolphin spotting at the Marlborough Sounds. ”
