Description - Bed and breakfast

Built in 1886, Sennen House is a magnificent colonial villa, registered under the New Zealand Historic Places Trust and restored in keeping with its gracious style and era to offer a unique accommodation experience combining Victorian charm with luxurious convenience.

The superior accommodation comprises 5 elegant apartments/suites, 3 with private lounge (2 with open fire) and each with individual character, private entrance, kitchen facilities, sunny verandah or patio and a simplistic grandeur.
Indulge in luxury linens, privacy, peace and native bird song, relax on sunny verandahs with a glass of Marlborough wine, or take a leisurely breakfast at the time of your choice from your well-stocked hamper.

Set in 5 acres of National Trust protected grounds and native bush, Sennen House provides a secluded peaceful retreat for the discerning traveller, yet is only a short stroll to Picton's restaurants, ferries and foreshore, ideally situated to explore the Marlborough Sounds, Queen Charlotte Track and Marlboorugh's world-renowned wineies.

Imogen & Richard are landscape architects and have travelled extensively, both internationally and within New Zealand. They, their young family, 2 cats and sheep, invite you to share their passion for this unique and very special place and its beautiful surroundings.
