Blenheim couple Hamish and Angie Beard have converted their home Dartington Barn, in Grovetown, into a one-bedroom bed and breakfast.
The couple are both qualified chefs, and Mr Beard is also a Marlborough tour guide and keen fisherman, offering private tours and tastings at some of the region's best food and wine producers.
An on-site archery range and axe throwing wall gives guests the opportunity to try archery and axe, knife or ninja star throwing.
The Beards have also set up an online business offering delivered gift boxes of their homemade gluten-free florentines, dartingtonbarn.co.nz.
