Enjoy hosted boutique accommodation in the heart of the Awatere Valley of Marlborough

Enjoy friendly, relaxed, hosted, accommodation at historic Ugbrooke Country House in Marlborough, with unsurpassed views across surrounding vineyards to the sparkling Cook Strait. Just a scenic 25 minute drive south of Blenheim, this historic English manor house, was the creation in 1885, of the 10th Lord William Clifford of Ugbrooke, Devon, England but the building was completed by Henry Dunstan Vavasour in 1903. It then became a Vavasour Family Home for 3 generations.  Since 2007 the current owners Peter and Alex have extensively renovated the house and more recently completed earthquake reinforcements. Ugbrooke continues to be a work in progress

Peter and Alex offer you bed and breakfast ( and dinner if required) and invite you to leave the hustle and bustle of the modern world and take a step back in time to a more elegant era unwinding in the comfort, informality and graciousness of Ugbrooke.

We are changing our name to Ugbrooke Country House Marlborough to better reflect the property. However you will still see references to Ugbrooke Country Estate.

Ugbrooke is ideally situated for people exploring the high country of the South Island and the world renowned Molesworth Station through to Hanmer Springs.

Over the Winter months we are working on more improvements. The house will be mostly open but guests need to be aware of work going on.
